Note: It is relatively easy to find this noodle restaurant. We simply caught the number 46 bus at the bus stop in Shijo Dori to the stop near Okazaki Park which lies just near the National Museum of Modern Art. The restaurant is just a short walk from the bus stop.
The bus system is very good in Kyoto. You enter via the side door, take a seat and then pay the 230 yen in the machine next to the driver when you reach your destination.
