Approx. 10 minutes walk from JR Takayama station, Sanmachi Dori is a popular tourist spot where ancient buildings still stand. It is also called "small Kyoto". On this street, there are many long-standing restaurants and traditional craft shops. As a result, it is crowded with tourists enjoying eating and shopping everyday. I would like to recommend you one restaurant situated on this "Sanmachi dori" street", called "Ebisu Honten". It is the first soba restaurant in Hida-Takayama region, founded in 1898. In the historical looking building that matches perfectly with its surrounding, you can enjoy traditional handmade soba (buckwheat noodles), that have been passed on generation after generation since it was first founded more than 100 years ago.

Ancient handmade soba are great!
The traditional soba are handmade every morning from locally grown soba flour and clean water of Hida. Because it is made of 70% soba floor and 30% flour, it is called 70 percent soba. In fact, the well-trained soba specialist makes these noodles in the same way as the first owner of this restaurant used to make.
A very popular set menu
The most popular dish on the menu is "Tenzaru soba" （1,660 yen） set menu with zaru soba （served in a bamboo draining basket） that enhances the taste and smell of soba and freshly fried tempura. The traditional soba soup is made of seafood-based stock, such as bonito or kelp, cooked slowly. Its elegant taste goes so well with great smell of soba.
A great dish available only during winter
"Kamo namban" （1,660 yen） is also a very popular dish which is only available from the middle of November when duck hunting starts! The soup with great taste of duck meat has grated radish and ginger inside. It will warm your body in cold winter.
