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.

 Inside the restaurant...   The display changes according to seasonal events and festivals.

 In early February, you can enjoy "setsubun" decoration.

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!

On "tokonoma" alcove, Samurai helmet called "Kabuto" and carps are displayed for the "Children's Day" to pray for the healthy growth of them.

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!

 Yozaemon opens on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and National holidays.

Who would like to be a next judge?  Anybody?
