A Closer Look
Enjoy a tradition dating to Chikurouen's founding days, in a building where vestiges of those days can still be seen today
Chikurouen’s premium course meal is made with rankiri-soba, a type of egg-bound soba noodles that were served when Emperor and Empress Showa visited Kushiro. The dish also includes soba sushi (sushi that substitutes vinegared soba noodles for rice), kashiwa-nuki (a soup containing chicken strips and various vegetables. This dish usually contains soba noodles, but these have been removed to create this version of the dish) and green tea soba noodles.
