For centuries, the delicious soba noodles have been Tokyoites favorite choice in noodles.

Soba is essential to Japanese cuisine, served cold as a sort of refreshment during Summer, in soup during Japan's frigid winters and eaten as a festive meal during New Year's Eve.  As with many Japanese dishes, there is more to making these buckwheat noodles than just following a recipe. Soba-making is a heavily cultural, artistic, and meditative process that has caught the attention of travelers and foodies around the world who come to Tokyo to experience the soba-making firsthand. The best soba is prepared from scratch, meticulously sliced by hand into identical strands and eaten right away. We all know that when it comes to delicious food, there is no time to lose!
