DESCRIPTION:

Kaeruan specializes in Kirishita Soba which is cultivated from late August to mid-October. It is grown in highland areas at the foot of mountains where there is a significant temperature difference between day and night, and morning fog is common. The fog prevents the crop from succumbing to frost, resulting in high-quality buckwheat.

 

MENU DETAILS:
Kaeruan exclusively uses Namako-uchi; soba made with 100% buckwheat flour, without using any binding agents like wheat flour. This creates a rich aroma and refreshing texture. The attention to detail extends to the locally produced sake on offer, too. The owner personally tastes and selects the recommended sake and brands for each year.

Located a little way into a side off Sanjo-dori Street, a few minutes walk east of JR Nara Station.
