Story & Recommendation
The same great tasting soba for over 100 years!
Daikokuya is a historical soba restaurant offering a wide variety of soba dishes that’s conveniently located in downtown Shijo-kawaramachi.
As you enter Daikokuya, you will see historical tools used in the making of buckwheat flour displayed to your right. For the last 100 years, Daikokuya have used these tools, the waterwheel and the mill that you see inside the restaurant to make their famous soba.
In addition to the flour making tools, Daikokuya also uses traditional Japanese tables and chairs, making it a great place to experience the history of Japan’s ancient capital.
The owner of the restaurant is really friendly and with pictures and article-like detailed explanations of each dish, the English menu is like a soba magazine!
If you have any allergies, please refer to these detailed explanations for info on the ingredients of each dish. In addition to the restaurant’s mainstay 20 soba dishes, they also serve seasonal dishes as well. The prices don’t change between lunch and dinner, and unlike many traditional restaurants, Daikokuya doesn’t close between the two.
Enjoy a delicious bowl of traditional soba in a warm, homely atmosphere!
