At the foot of Wakakusa-yama and down some stone steps is Wakakusa-yama Mizutani-chaya, an old thatched-roofed farmhouse. You can order simple noodle dishes and matcha here. Alternatively, enjoy a cold beer under the canopy of maple trees. Good for regrouping before or after a visit to Kasuga Taisha Shrine. Noodles are under Y1000.
