“Soba at its Finest”
My Japanese friend,Okomoto-San, has a good friend who is the chef/owner of Okamura in Zushi. This is a soba restaurant that was listed in the 2015 Michelin book. The soba noodles were perfect and the condiments and other dishes added to the culinary excellence. Certainly the best soba I've had in Ja...pan.

“A soba shop which is highly rated in Hayama but.....”
This is one of the highest rated Soba (Japanese noodle) Restaurants in Hayama/Zushi district. I think they are absolutely fine but it's not worth visiting them just for trying their soba noodle. I have tried both hot and cold noodles and tempura. Noodle is bit starchy and probably it works slight...ly better with cold noodle. They use different "dash" soup for different style of dishes. SInce there are so many better soba restaurants in Tokyo, so, I suggest people should try soba in Tokyo, not in Hayama. If needed to eat soba in Hayama, then, there are some other alternatives such as Rioh (Zushi station). I think Rioh is more sophisticated then Okamura. A similar style to Okamura but a cheaper option is called Wakana (10 minutes away by car from Okamura).
