[Ito in Nakashibestu] Burdock Tempura Buckwheat Noodles and Rice with Japanese Horseradish

Ito

Handmade Soba Ito (手打ちそば 伊とう) is a famous buckwheat noodles restaurant founded in 2008 in Nakashibetsu town located in the northwest part of Nemuro city, and is near Nakasibetsu Bus Terminal. Mr. Hiroyuki Ito (伊東 裕之) is a restraunt owner. They garnered one star in MICHELIN GUIDE Hokkaido 2012 Special Edition. Counter seats and table seats are provided, so I guess that even family customers enjoy meals.

The Nakashibetsu has rich hot springs, and Yoroushi Onsen (養老牛温泉) is famous. Fresh hot springs gush out even in the downtown. As for a tourist attracation, Kaiyodai Hill (開陽台) is well-known in particular. The Nakashibetsu has Nakashibetsu Airport, so it is developed as a base town of Eastern Hokkaido.

Yoroushi Onsen

Yoroushi Onsen (養老牛温泉) is a hot-spring place in Nakashibetsu town located between Lake Mashu (摩周湖) and Notsuke Peninsula (野付半島). 2 onsen ryokan, Hotel Yoroushi (ホテル養老牛) and Yuyado Daiichi (湯宿だいいち) are built along Hokkaido Route 505, and Karamatsu-no-Yu (からまつの湯), a mixed bathing open-air bath for free, is a little away from the center of the Yoroushi Onsen. Unfortunately, restraunts, cafes, cafes, souvenir shops and convenience stores are not built. The hot-spring place is surrounded by nature, and rare animals such as Blakiston's Fish Owl and Japanese sable inhabit a forest, so those animals sometimes appear at the accommodations. There are Yoro Falls (養老の滝), Kaiyodai Observatory (開陽台) and Lake Mashu (摩周湖) around the Yoroushi Onsen. Read More

Kaiyodai Hill

Kaiyodai Hill (開陽台) is a hill in Nakashibetsu town is located in the northwestern part of Nemuro city. A round observation deck is built on the hilltop at about 270 m above sea level, and is famous for looking over 330 degrees view along the horizon. I wondered why it was not 360 degree. On investigation, the horizon looks round in 330 degree. The other 30 degree may be the back side. Kaiyodai Ranch (開陽台牧場) with area of about 780 ha is built on the hill, too, and 1000 milk cows are put out to pasture. A walk with the total length of 2.6 km and Kaiyodai Ranch Fureai Park (開陽台牧場ふれあい広場) are built along the ranch, and a walking is available. Bell of Happiness (幸せの鐘) and Figures of Dairy Cow (乳牛の像) are built, too. By the way, the straight road "North 19 Line" in front of the Kaiyodai Hill is called Milk Road (ミルクロード) because most tank trucks for milk run on the road, and it is popular with motor tour riders.

The climate is cool in a summer, and a large temperature gap is great for good buckwheat, and the buckwheat production of the Hokkaido is increasing.

I visited here around 11:00 on a weekday. I sat at a counter seat, and read a menu. I found Rice with Japanese Horseradish (山わさび). The restaurant serving it is rare. Because the Japanese Horseradish was one of typical Hokkaido's food, I wanted to eat it. So I ordered Burdock Tempura Buckwheat Noodles (ごぼう天そば) and the Rice with japanese Horseradish. The price of the Burdock Tempura Buckwheat Noodles were JPY 900, and the price of the Rice with Japanese Horseradish was JPY 250. By the way, customers can choose a type of buckwheat noodles between Yabu Soba (やぶそば * a variety of buckwheat noodles) or Sarashina Soba (更科そば * a type of high quality buckwheat noodles), and the Sarashina Soba had an extra charge of JPY 100. I chose the Yabu Soba, but the Sarashina Soba got a high evaluation for gourmet, too.

About 10 minutes later, the Burdock Tempura Buckwheat Noodles and the Rice with Japanese Horseradish were served. The tempura and the buckwheat noodles, the Japanese horseradish and the rice were served separately. Customers can eat the tempura with powdered green tea salt (抹茶塩) except putting tempura on the buckwheat noodles as the customers like.

Soup was light taste, and bonito soup stock was richly flavored. It was tasty! The buckweat noodles used buckwheat flour produced in Nakashibestu was made by hands, and was chewy. In addition, the Japanese horseradish irritated my nose and I could enjoy a taste while suffering. Thanks for the good meal!

    Not in this buckwheat noodles article.
    ———————————–

    About me. Thanks for your compliment anyway..
    Nope, bro… I’m just an ordinary guy, but with highly motivated and passionate about travel photography and journalism. But in the future, I hope it can be my main income for living.

    What a great journey you have!

    Regarding the question, yes, I took the photos and movie.
    But some photos are stock photo.

  4. Makan Angin says:

    Unfortunately, you visited there at day. But, the Hyobaku Festival also has interesting atmosphere at noon.

    I’ve been there, too, but at night with the ice sculptures illuminated by colorful lights. Sugoi!!!
    You can see the photos here:

    I’m just curious, but I want to ask you..
    Did you travel and explore all around Hokkaido to get these all amazing photos and contents for your website?
    Or maybe did you use some photos and contents from other parties?
