Soba, or buckwheat noodles, is a popular and delicious dish. The soup is decanted from the jar at right into the cup at its left. Wasabi and leeks may be added to the broth, into which the noodles are then dipped. My lunch set included rice, Japanese pickles, fried egg, boiled bamboo shoots, and sweet beans. If you're ever in Tochio, drop by the restaurant pictured in this post, just off the upper end of the main street.
