Taste the famous inari udon at Michihachi, which was established in the early Showa period.

This udon shop is located not far from the station. It was established in the early Showa period (early 20th century), and its appearance, unchanged since then, is a valuable feature of the shop. The soft udon noodles and lightly flavored broth with a strong aroma of dried bonito and kelp are the traditional taste of Kyoto. Many regular customers are so enthralled by the taste that they always visit the restaurant after visiting the shrine.


As one would expect from the gateway to the Fushimi Inari Taisha shrine, the famous inari udon is a dish of fried bean curd, which is associated with Inari-san, topped with an egg that looks like a treasure ball and a fish paste that resembles Mount Inari. After the meal, you can also enjoy sweet treats such as warabimochi (rice cakes) and anmitsu (sweet bean paste), which are smooth and fresh.


Inari Udon (udon noodles) 670 yen. This menu was invented as a specialty only available in front of the Fushimi Inari gate. The fluffy, sweetly cooked fried bean curd combines well with the broth to create a relaxing taste!
