Restaurant recommendation: first-rate soba up in the mountains!
Spend a relaxed and unrushed moment away from the city at Nagano, a soba noodle specialty restaurant. Nagano uses their own ground buckwheat noodles blended from five different buckwheats from the Shinshu and Hokkaido areas. This restaurant is located on a hilltop to allow you to enjoy the lush greenery of the mountains during the daytime and a beautiful view of the Kobe skyline at night. After enjoying your meal, visit Kabutoyama Glass Studio just next to the restaurant to experience a glass-blowing class. And don’t forget to buy soba-cha (soba seed tea) to take home with you. Nagano’s savory soba-cha has a unique nutty flavor.
Hours: 11:00 – 20:00, closed when soba sells out.
Closed on Mondays and Tuesdays (except public holidays)
Address: 3-10, Yumoto-cho, Nishinomiya City, Hyogo 662-0005
