Itō-ke

Soba in Tōno

Among the soba varieties served here, try hitsuko soba (ひつこそば), eaten with chicken, mushrooms, onion and raw egg. Otherwise go for hittsumi (ひっつみ), hand-cut noodles served with chicken-and-vegetable dumplings in a hot broth. The restaurant is in the traditional dark-wood building adjacent to the Tōno Folktale & Storytelling Center; look for the wooden sign over the sliding doors.
