The perfect bowl of soba (蕎麦, buckwheat noodles) awaits you in one Michelin-starred Tamawarai! The high-quality noodles are fragrant, well-textured, and flavorful, since they’re handmade using buckwheat cultivated from the owner’s own farm. Try both the cold and hot soba options—the servings are quite small anyway, you’ll have enough room for both!

Their soba was absolutely delightful! I got the cold soba with fresh mushrooms, which is one of their specialties. The restaurant follows a traditional design; and you dine cross-legged on a tatami mat. 👍🏼

Found this gem right outside Akihabara Station. It's best for quick bites—orders are taken through a machine and your meal is prepared in about five minutes. The soba's delicious and cheap! 👅

Owner Tatsuru Rai is widely-recognized as one the best soba masters. With only 12 bar seats in and two small tables in Rakuichi, you have a prime spot to witness him knead, roll, and cut dough. The noodle’s mellow broth is made with the immaculate spring water abundant in the area. Choose from either plain soba or duck soba noodles, prepared hot or cold and with a side of scrumptious vegetable tempura. Rai, his wife Midori, and their two sons built the patchwood building that houses the restaurant with their hands. Much like a family welcoming visitors into their abode, the family dons their kimono and hosts guests with exceptional hospitality.
