Yohei Yamada`s favorite place is...?

Chikuyuantarou no Atsumori

It is a shop in my neighborhood that I have gone to since my childhood. It serves "Atsumori soba", which is a hot soba noodle dish. It is served with plenty of Kujyo green onions and egg, which is served together with a warm soup stock combined with wasabi, which is very tasty. Please appreciate the flavour of the buckwheat noodle soup as well . One serving of Atsumori Soba costs 900 yen.
