In fact they have a very short menu. Just a dozen of different udons. But it is worth trying, they are delicious, and not expensive at all. But I'd you are looking for a full substantial meal, may this restaurant not be the best choice.

A shirt walk from the castle on the way back to the station. Great food, noodles made by hand in front of you. The broths were delicious! The owners also tell you about their history and how they started. Highly recommended

Kanazawa is almost 4 hours away from Himeji by train. Do NOT go to Kanazawa for dinner unless you are IN Kanazawa.
