Delicious handmade udon in a family run restaurant. It’s right on the way to the castle and is so delicious. There is an English menu available. Definitely recommend the niku (meat) udon!

I hadn't been here in over 35 years, but my dad, wife, and I visited Himeji and stopped by for lunch. We had a great reunion with the owners, who we used to see on a daily basis since my dad's church used to be...upstairs. Lots of fond memories of the food, atmosphere, and welcoming family. Their kitsune udon made that my favorite dish for life, which I tried again, along with their onigiri, which I think is "new" to their menu and was excellent.More

I had seen the positive reviews here and wanted to introduce udon to my partner so we came here for lunch after the castle before going back to Kokoen after. The staff immediately sat us down and gave us an English menu so it's not...a problem if you can't speak Japanese. There are quite a few options so plenty to choose from. It was a cool day so the udon was perfect as it warmed us up and we saw the chef cutting up fresh made udon! Not expensive at all as most udon were around 700-800 yen per bowl and the food was very satisfying. It was about 10 mins walk away from the castle or the JR station, good mid point.More

Another gem of a place. We stopped by this outlet after visiting Himeji castle. The udon was springy, not starchy. And the accompaniments were so good. I have Menme - bonito flares & raw egg, all mixed tgt. Hubby had Okame - with assorted kitsune,...wakame, age, kamabuko & beef. The kitsune was to-die-for! A must-come!More

We stopped by Memme when walking back from Himeji castle. We had heard good things about the place, so fancied checking it out. Staff were lovely and the udon was amazing. You can tell it is very fresh, and you can watch the chef cut...up the udon noodles in the kitchen! I would recommend the Kitsune (tofu) as the broth was very tasty and the tofu had a great texture.More

Exquisite udon, made right in the shop. I had the unrinsed dipping noodles, which were perfect, while spouse loved the curry soup. Terrific staff, even taught me correct technique for corralling the long noodles.

Went for lunch and found the curry udon to be excellent. Price was also very good as it cost 2100 yen for three of us. Had to wait for the noodles as it was busy, so we watched the staff make them right in front...of us. Can’t get fresher noodles than that!More

Great place to visit after touring the Himeji castle. It's close to the castle and the railway station. Udon is great and affordable and the noodles are made in house. Very friendly staff and English menu.

Kanazawa is almost 4 hours away from Himeji by train. Do NOT go to Kanazawa for dinner unless you are IN Kanazawa.
