A small traditional place not far from Funaoka Onsen, Kanei is the place to go if you’re a soba (buckwheat noodles) connoisseur – the noodles are made by hand here and are delicious. The owners don’t speak much English, so here’s what to order: zaru soba (¥950) or kake soba (soba in a broth; ¥1000).
Note that handmade soba quickly loses its taste and texture, so we recommend that you eat it quickly. The servings are small and the dishes are only likely to please real soba fans. Kanei is on the corner, a few metres west of Saraca Nishijin.
