A simple, traditional teishoku restaurant, this is a reasonably priced place to stop for some lunch while wandering through Yuwaku.

Offering regular tables as well as a tatami section, the menu includes udon, soba and morioka-ramen (cold ramen from northern Japan) as well as Japanese sets with fish (these change depending on the season). The most popular dish, however, is the curry udon which is perfect on a chilly day. Prices start at under ¥500 for udon and soba and don’t go beyond ¥1,000. The menu is only available in Japanese, but the font is clear enough for a quick google-translate job.
