Hegi-soba noodles

Hegisoba is a type of soba that is served in a wooden dish called a “hegi.” Hegisoba is made with funori (seaweed), which gives it the smooth, firm texture that it is known for. The noodles are separated into individual mouthfuls, so it’s easy to eat too!

Notable Places with Hegisoba

It’s conveniently located 1 minute on foot from the station and is a perfect place to visit while you await your shinkansen (bullet train). Soba noodles go great with tempura veggies.
