Chanced upon this restaurant after checking this out as Tripadvisor's top restaurant in Noboribetsu. We went slightly earlier than the usual lunch timing and were fortunate that we did not have to queue for a seat in the small cozy restaurant. My husband and I...More

It's not often you see or eat Soba with duck. Sobadokorofukuan has not only delicious duck soba but also very good tempura. We ordered an extra plate of tempura because it's really good.

Queued for a while before managing to get in. But it was worth the wait. I had the ebiten don set with the cold soba. The prawns were fresh and crunchy and the accompanying soba was excellent.

The queue for the Ramen place was too long so we hopped over to this Soba cafe. Just a tiny place as well so had to wait for 15 mins or so, as there were many other tourists there for lunch. We are not used...More

According to my ryokan hosts, must call before going if the weather is inclement (rain) since they will close w/o advisement. We had several options in the event it was closed (it was raining hard and steady).
