Found near Kiyomizu Gojo Station, Kyoto! A handmade soba noodle restaurant where you can also enjoy ceramics [Sono Baba]

July 07, 2023 open

A 7-minute walk from Keihan Kiyomizu Gojo Station. Mr. Yoshida honed his skills by renting a room and then became independent as he had hoped. Together with his friend Andrew Saito, a ceramic artist, he opened a handmade soba restaurant with a ceramic studio [DONOMA studio].

Inside the store

The restaurant uses native buckwheat produced in Nagawa, Hokkaido, which has a strong flavor. The soba is smooth and refreshing, while the addition of coarsely ground buckwheat flour gives it a rich, thick flavor.
The dough is kneaded exactly the same way," says the owner, Mr. Yoshida. He is interested in ceramics, and the store is also lined with pottery vessels handmade by Mr. Yoshida. Workshops by Mr. Saito are also held at the pottery studio, so why not enjoy both soba and pottery to the fullest?
