Udon with flavorful broth inside a ryokan (Japanese-style hotel)
This udon restaurant is run by a ryokan of long standing near Yasaka Shrine. The restaurant, which seats customers in a section of the ryokan, is only open during lunchtime. You can enjoy your meal in a truly Japanese atmosphere in the tatami room near a beautiful green garden. The udon noodles are thin and soft, the soup a subtle, elegant flavor. Feel free to order a coffee or dessert after your meal and relax as long as you want at this restaurant.

1Must Eat !
Hot noodle with beef sinew / ¥1,100
A popular item among internationals, the soft beef tendon melts in your mouth. The strong beef flavor is the perfect complement to the light udon broth.
2Must Eat !
Hot noodle with mochi（rice cake） / ¥880
This item includes two pieces of fragrant fried mochi (rice cake). We recommend steeping the mochi in the soup so it can absorb the flavor before eating.
3Let's Try !
Hot boiled tofu / ¥350
Enjoy the creamy flavor and smooth texture. This tofu is best eaten together with the grated kombu (kelp).
How to Order & Eat
If you have room in your stomach, order extra toppings to put on your udon (meat, mochi, pickled plum). You can also order a set which includes rice topped with chirimenzansho (baby sardines with Japanese peppers).
- Order Tips -
A large serving of udon is an extra ¥250. Also, if you want more spice, add some of the shichimi in the container on your table.
