Bokunenjin is one of the most famous soba restaurants in Izu, and it offers superb Juwari-soba to its customers.

Different from other soba, Juwari-soba only uses buckwheat flour as its main ingredients, creating healthier soba with fragile texture; juwari-soba breaks easily compare to other types of soba.

Bokunenjin offers not just delicious juwari-soba, but also great calming atmosphere as well as you can stare at the famous bamboo path “Chikurin no Komichi” from the window while enjoying your meal.

We strongly recommend you to try Bokunenjin Tenseiro soba; a cold or warm soba with sakura ebi kakiage topping.
