Reimen or 冷麺 may be a Korean import but don't say that to the people of Morioka because they guard their noodles with pride, and this three-storey institution is a popular hit with the locals. Queues tend to form as early as 5 p.m. but because the restaurant boasts three storeys, you wouldn't have to wait very long. Most patrons... More

Try the cold Korean style noodle. Try their Anmitsu dessert; they will give you memorable experience. Friendly service and all well systematic even during busy times.

Usually in Japan when you order sake they fill the glass until it overflows..... Here they just fill the glass and don't let it overflow.

We had 40 minutes spare between trains so decided to eat at this restaurant which is in front of the station. There was a line to be seated. But the service was very efficient and accommodating when we mentioned we had a train to catch. Food was good and noodle was chewy. We had both the cold and the warm... More

This restaurant is close to Morioka train station. However, the sign outside the restaurant is not very eye-catching. If you are not careful enough, you will probably miss it. They serve original Morioka cold noodles. You can choose how hot and spicy your noodles are. We chose the "original flavour", that means not hot at all. We were amazed at... More

We were only in Morioka for one night, so we had to try the Morioka Reimen. Spicy and delicious! For 800 yen you get a good sized bowl of cold noodles, kimchi, hard boiled egg, water melon, cucumber pickles, and a slice of beef. A must try!

Rei-men is a specialty of Morioka and I like it so much. Pyon-Pyon Sya is a nice restaurant for travelers since it is near to the Morioka station, but besides the convenient location the quality of rei-men is excellent with noodles not too sticky nor too soft and soup of moderate taste. Of course we have to be care about... More
