Soba in Japan (Outside of Tokyo)

Hi All,

I'm traveling to Japan the second week of April and am trying to find out the best place to experience soba outside of Tokyo. I only have a week in Japan and plan on spending 4 days in Tokyo and 3 days in a town or city known for their soba. I looked into Hokkaido, but the flights are very expensive. The other places I'm looking at are Takayama and Togakushi. Hida beef and the Takayama Matsuri is happening so that is a bonus for Takayama. I haven't found or am not looking in the right places on the internet for more information about great soba towns. Does anybody have any recommendations before I book Takayama?
