Took a 20 minute bus ride from the toyooka train station here. Not that picturesque as I have expected,not much of photo opp backdrops. Good to just enjoy and see a little town, famous for soba noodles. Make sure you check the bus & train arrival/departure itinerary closely when planning your trip there. GPS will help on the bus too,... More

Unfortunately I don't remember the name of the one we have been to but I was told that every single place serve great Soba. On nice day you can have nice walk around town which has its... More
