  1. WOW. I love soba noodles a lot but never knew there were so many ways of preparing it! So I think this is a brilliant post, even though I’m getting slightly confused by all the different names and different types :D. I always thought it was just soba. I’m clearly not an expert on Japanese cuisine even though I LOVE it. It’s so great that you post every single day, though how do you find the time, you must be so busy!

    And thank you for your lovely comments on my blog too. I love knowing how things are like in other countries. And Japan is definitely one of my top places to visit :).
