At "Shimujo" you can eat Okinawa soba in an old folk house.



This Okinawa old folk house is registered as National Tangible Cultural Property.

It was rebuilt right after the war, so it is more than 60 years old!

With the traditional red tiles and stone pavement, the 'hinpun' that serves as a screen and as a charm against evil spirits, the 'furu' (pigsty and restroom) in the premise, the unique vegetation of Okinawa and the pond, you can fully experience the good old Okinawa.



It is located on a hill in Shuri, Naha city, so the natural wind is pleasant and the view is awesome.

From the garden, you can also have a view of the Okinawa City Monorail "Yui Rail" together with the landscape of Shuri.



You can eat Okinawa soba while enjoying the time of Okinawa flowing slowly, as if you were visiting granny's house.




The characteristic of Shimujo soba noodles is to be thin and flat with a chewy texture.

The soup is made with a broth of slowly boiled pork bones from Okinawa prefecture with plenty of bonito.

The grease is removed carefully, so it becomes an excellent soup, where its firm good flavor and richness can be appreciated while being light.



Among the menu choices, "soki soba" is particularly popular.

The simple and dense flavor of the slowly stewed 'soki' (pork spare ribs) flatters even further Shimujo's Okinawa soba.



In the restaurant, you can purchase the "koregusu" (island chili pepper preserved in Awamori liquor). 

We recommend you to put some drops on you soba before eating it!
