  A soba house in Kamakura.
by worldkiwi

This is not a single restaurant tip. Throughout Japan, one of the most affordable authentic dining experiences you can have is at a Soba House. It helps to learn the Japanese script for a Soba House, so you can find them easily when you're hungry. As their name implies, you will get soba there. Soba are noodles, like Italian spaghetti, cooked in a soup like way with vegetables and sometimes meat. You will usually get miso with your meal and possibly even some tempura (battered vegetables or prawns). This Soba House is in Kamakura. We had a warming and surprisingly filling meal there one chilly evening when we visited Kamakura on a day trip from Tokyo.
