Choose your noodle from a menu at the vending machine, prices range from 300-500yen. Bring your ticket to the counter, the old lady will ask you what noodle you'd like: udon or soba. They then prepare your noodle right away
Enjoy!

Right next to the South Gate entrance to JR Sakuragicho Station - this soba shop has been here for the 15 years I've been in town, but has been moved across the station to this new location as part of the station's remodeling. You can't miss it right on the corner. The prices haven't changed much in the 15 years either. English menu and instructions are printed. You now pay at the machine. If you're stuck - I'd suggest going for the tempura soba. I drank all the soup/broth last time I was there and I never normally do that... but the fatty tempura had melted into the tasty soup and it was great. You can't go wrong here for a delicious, healthy snack/meal for the price of a latte! There are a few seats, a stand up area and 2 tables (standing) outside if the weather is good. It's not a place to linger though.

It is a common soba stand, a style of traditional Japanese fast food serving Japanese noodles. Usually I do not remember the name or place of such soba stands because most of them are anonymous and the menu and taste are almost same everywhere.
But this soba stand Kawamuraya is characteristic and impressive in the two features.
The soup is excellent, full of the flavour of katsuo-bushi, dried bonito. Though the noodle is in an average quality as fast food and not so good or bad, the soup is what I have never experienced anywhere and wonderful.
They shows the English translation of the menu in the wall. I do not understand why they do so. I have never seen anyone ordering in English. I am not sure if the translation is proper.
