“A must visit for soba noodles in Ashiya.”
Reviewed 31 August 2013

Our Kobe hosts took us up to Muragen, where we enjoyed a most exceptional luncheon experience. Every detail about this place is an aesthetic masterpiece. This is a must visit restaurant to experience the highest quality soba noodle dishes.

The hilltop setting of this establishment makes it very unique - from what I could see, one can only drive to their remote location. The stunning new and minimal Japanese architecture and design of the restaurant adds to its zen charm.

P.S.:
If you are into architecture and design, I recommend visiting here for lunch - they only serve lunch - after touring Yodoko Guest House, i.e., Yamamura House designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. After lunch, take another short drive to see the Rokko Apartments, designed by Tadao Ando.
