Nishikanasa Soba Noodles
The soba at this restaurant is made fresh from scratch daily. The process begins with grinding Hitachi Akisoba buckwheat flour with a stone mill, kneading the dough by hand, and cooking the noodles on an order-by-order basis.
Juwari Soba, made using 100% locally grown Hitachi Akisoba buckwheat flour, is a great option for first-time visitors.
The restaurant also offers a soba workshop for a memorable way to try the area's famous noodles.

Yuba no Sato Tofu Restaurant
Yuba is referred to as "tofu skin" that forms on top of boiled soy milk. While it may not sound appealing, yuba is silky and slightly sweet. Plus, it is high in protein and iron! Yuba cuisine is an excellent choice for vegetarians who'd like to experience traditional Japanese cuisine.
This yuba specialty restaurant is a great place to try this unique health food. We recommend trying the yuba dipped in hot pot or yuba sashimi.
Like many restaurants in the rural Daigo area, Restaurant Kenbo serves a range of dishes using farm-fresh local produce alongside shamo, a wildfowl found in northern Ibaraki.
The relaxed atmosphere and private dining rooms truly set this restaurant apart, making for a memorable dining experience.
