What comes to mind when talking about specialties of Gifu prefecture's Takayama is its local gourmet food chuka-soba! Known as a famous chuka-soba restaurant near JR Takayama Station is the long-standing Tsuzumi-soba, established in 1956. Their chuka-soba has a subtle and somewhat nostalgic taste that has been passed on since its opening and has been long cherished by locals and tourists alike. The cozy inside is always packed with customers and lines will start forming for lunchtime even before the opening time. The restaurant closes as soon as they run out of noodles, so an early visit is recommended!

Committed to Local Ingredients!
The ramen soup is simmered thoroughly using a base of pork bones and seven different kinds of ingredients. The restaurant is committed to using vegetables that are exclusively from Gifu prefecture. The pork used for the ramen's topping chashu are from Gifu prefecture's branded pork Kenton.
Popular Go-to Dish with Subtle Flavors
The most popular item on the menu is the chuka-soba （700 yen） with a nostalgic flavor. The thin curly noodles go perfectly well together with the restaurant's specialty soup, using pork bones, vegetables and soy sauce! The soup has a fresh yet profound flavor and you'll want to finish until the last drop.
Extremely Satisfying Ramen
Chashu-men （1,100 yen）, topped with so many chashu almost covering all of the noodles and using Gifu's branded pork Kenton, is also very popular! These chashu with just the right amount of fat taste lighter than they look and really bring out the deliciousness of the soup.
