This is the approach to the restaurant.  It is located on the upper end of Kyomachi street, which connected Sado gold and silver mine to the Magistrate's office during the Edo period.

Two chefs in Yozaemon. 

Collaboration between a father - soba chef and a son - pasta chef!  Also, the rivalry between them creats delicious dishes!

This is pasta set menu with salad, pasta and dessert.  Perfect!

Pasta chef and his mom, the weaver!! 

 Yozaemon is a family owned restaurant and each member do their part harmoniously.  

 As a self-styled judge, soba or pasta, both wins!

Who would like to be a next judge?  Anybody?
