Lonely Planet review

Down the street from the Hakata Machiya Furusato-kan, this lovely eatery makes homemade soba (buckwheat noodles) from the Shinshū area of central Japan (around Nagano), prepared in a variety of ways including kakesoba (in hot broth, ¥700), zaru-soba (cold with dipping sauce, ¥850) and oroshi-soba (cold, topped with grated daikon, ¥1000).
