Discover The Charm of Soba Buckwheat Noodles with a Professional

 

Traditional Japanese cuisine has been listed as one of the many Intangible Cultural Heritages of Japan since 2013. When speaking of Japanese food, sushi, tempura, and kaiseki come to one’s mind. Of the important traditional Japanese cuisines, only soba receives the prefix “Nihon” (Japan) and thus can be referred to as “Nihon soba.

To celebrate the arrival of a new year, the Japanese eat “toshikoshi (moving on to the next year) soba” on New Years Eve. Through tradition, soba has become a lucky charm during important events and festivals.

While buckwheat is grown in many countries, the history of soba in Japan began roughly 9000 years before present. Since the 16th century, soba has taken the noodle form that people are accustomed to seeing today. The way soba is processed and seasoned are all uniquely Japanese.

We invite you to explore soba-making under a professional chef. While you are in Japan, we would like for you to enjoy the pleasure of soba-making (and soba-eating) at Itamae’s famed shop.


 

The tour will end with us dropping you off at a location of your choice in Tokyo.
