Izushi Soba

Izushi`s speciality dish is Izushi soba which are noodles made of buckwheat. They are eaten with the Japanese soup stock dashi. Daikon (radish), grated yam, wasabi (Japanese horseradish), spring onions and raw egg (optional) are added to the dashi to taste. The freshly made noodles are then dipped in this soup mixture and eaten. At the end of the meal, the remaining soup is mixed with sobayu (the hot water in which the noodles were boiled) and can be drunk as a sort of tea. Izushi soba is served on lots of small Izushi ceramic plates. Enjoy as many plates as you want and see who can get the biggest stack!

Shinkorou (clock tower) - The clock tower was built in 1871, and still ticks away today as the town's symbol.

Izushi Castle Ruins - The ruins of Izushi castle, which were built in 1604. The wooden bridge, which samurai once used to enter the castle has been reproduced. Placed at the foot of a mountain, this is the perfect place to wander around and get a feel for the deep history of Izushi castle town.

Arikoyama-inari - Next to the castle ruins you will find a stone staircase lined with beautiful red tori gates all the way up to the shrine at the top.

Izushi is a castle town that flourished during the Edo era, about 200-300 years ago.
There are several fine displays of traditional architecture found throughout the town, this is why Izushi is designated as a national preservation district of important buildings.
The town is also famous for its own original style of soba, Japanese buckwheat noodles. Approximately 50 soba shops line the town's streets.
