今年も床瀬にいきました! 「ふる里」でしんそば食べました! We went to Tokose again this year to eat Soba at my friend’s place, ’Furusato’.

It’s a four-hour drive from Kyoto. All that way, just to eat soba? Not only the soba… Read on and drool.

「ふる里」の床瀬そばだ Finally we turned to… Tokose Soba. Taniguchi-san made the buckwheat noodles freshly for us (as always). They were magnificent (as always).

やっぱ、山男が出ってきました Here is one of aaron’s photos of the Lesser-Spotted Tokose Mountain Baboon.. Notice the unusual hair-styling, and the wild bulging eyes that indicate that the wild creature is about to devour something.

Good Chuka Soba noodles at Manpuku. it is on the SW corner of the traffic signal just to the West of Citibank (facing onto Shijo). Inexpensive. A little too salty for some tastes, be we think it’s great.
