Even though you woud not expect it, the food is great. They offer some unique combinations, some may be very local and strange to foreigners. I liked it.

One of the famous soba place in the platform . Actually soba itself is just ok but since it's located at platform and I usually try winter, it's delicious.

This was a great little find if you're after something quick, warm and hearty. The menu is in Japanese and you'll need to buy a food ticket from the vending machine before sitting down. For the noodles, they have a large option (omori) if you...More
