Located close to the well, “Genchi No Ido”
Genchi No Soba is located close to the well “Genchi No Ido.” The shop just recently opened in May, 2009. The manager, Mr. Seki, ran a vegetarian restaurant in downtown Matsumoto for the last several decades.
A light interior just like a stylish cafe
Some customers read books after eating soba.
The manager served his apprenticeship under a soba master in Togakushi. He uses buckwheat made in Hokkaido and prepares stock with only dried bonito and additive-free soy sauce. The pure well water is used for boiling the soba.
All vegetables are produced locally.
