Soba in Kagurazaka: 5 restaurants to have the area's famous food


Kagurazaka is known for its traditional atmosphere. It terms of food, soba (buckwheat noodles) is a local specialty. Here are 5 restaurants that are definitely worth the try.

Feel free to follow favy!


Kyourakutei is a restaurant that was designated a Michelin Bib Gourmand for its reasonably-priced outstanding soba. The handmade soba noodles, fresh tempura (Japanese-style deep-fried seafood and vegetables), and local sake are all delicious.

We recommend ordering one of the 'Ten Zaru' items (chilled soba and tempura), all of which are are less than ¥2,000. Experience both the exceptional soba noodles and crispy, delicious tempura!

Kuzuryu Soba

Kuzuryu Soba is a superb restaurant well-known in the area for its soba and other traditional dishes from the Hokuriku region of Honshu. Despite serving quality cuisine, it's actually very affordable! You can get lunch sets for just ¥1,000. If you want to get something a bit more special, you can upgrade your meal to the seasonal lunch course which will cost you ¥2,500. For dinner, they have an amazing seasonal course for ¥6,500, which includes grilled, fish, sashimi, and a variety of other side dishes along with the soba.

Toshima Iidabashi

This joint serves some hearty, meat-packed and thick-flavoured soup with soba or udon noodles. Best of all, it's incredibly cheap with options from ¥430. This is the best satisfying cheap-eat in the area.


Shinano is a restaurant on two floors with a simple traditional Japanese decor. It has traditional low tables called horigotatsu at which you sit on the floor on cushions. It serves quality handmade soba and udon noodles for less than ¥2,000.

A good option at Shinano is to have the ¥1,100 set that includes both the soba and the udon noodles on the same plate. It's fun to compare the taste and texture of these two kinds of Japanese noodles.


Nagomi is a great soba restaurant serving handmade soba made from domestic buckwheat flour. One particularity of this restaurant is that they make some 100% buckwheat soba noodles, which is not always offered at soba restaurants because they're quite hard to make. Generally, soba noodles are a mix of wheat and buckwheat. So their 100% buckwheat soba has a richer, more refined taste, and a unique texture too.
