A soba restaurant by the river. Nice interior with both western and tatami seats. Soba is great. Tempura is good - fresh, crispy and not oily.

A great find. There were 3 of us and we all enjoyed our meals. One of us had the cold soba with duck, the rest of us had the hot soba. Highly recommend this restaurant, tourists and locals frequent the place.

You can have them straight up or as a "triple decker" with three toppings: 1) seaweed, wasabi, pickled daikon & soy-dip, 2) grated yam, sesame seeds & soy-dop, 3) green tea powder. You then finish up the last of your soy-dip using hot water and soba... More

We went for lunch and Metoba Soba simplicity gives deep character. The Soba and the Tsuyu (soy-dip) combination produces fragrant and pleasant culinary experience. Our favorite is Ten-Zaru-Soba. Direction: The restaurant along the Metoba-gawa River. 3-4-8 Chuo, Matsumoto-shi / +81-263-35-8502
