Hi,

There are some around the station. One I recommend is SobaFuku. Three minutes walk from the south exit of Himeji station. It is located in the underground shopping arcade connected with the station(Ekichika). You can check the image of it from the yahoo site below. As it is all Japanese, yet you can see some pictures including tenzaru.

Good luck.
Jay

On closer inspection of that website provided by Jay, it doesn't look like it's underground. You can clearly see in one of the pics that it is on ground level.

I also had a look and you're right...

also, sobafuku sell 天ぷら皿そば which is tempura soba NOT 天ざる which is tenzaru.

sorry to be so anal about it since it really is similar if not the same but the tempura soba sold at sobafuku has 5 "small" dishes of soba that go with the tempura...its too much for me i think, i wouldn't be able to eat it all haha

thanks anyway for the input, I'm sure if I look around I'll find another soba-ya that'll sell just tenzaru soba.

sara sonba[皿そば] means "on dish(=sara/皿)".
zaru soba[ざる-そば] means "on zaru".
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zaru

Zaru is draining better than dish after boiled then water cooling.

"zaru" is best?
No. there is no difference in Soba taste.


also watch this!

by the way, Kansai(West Japan) people like "Udon[うどん]" than Soba.
because,Udon culture is popular.
Soba is East Japan[Kanto] culture.
if enough time visit "Takamatsu city of Kagawa-PF[香川県高松市]".
"Sanuki-Udon[讃岐うどん] town" this is biggest in Japan closer Himeji.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Udon

Sanuki[讃岐] means region name in Edo period[江戸=tokyo].
now calling PF name since "Meiji period[明治時代]" after Edo.
