Postcard from Tokyo: Cutting Soba/ Missing Finger (Ikebukuro)

by Keisuke Akabori

On my recent trip to Japan, Kuni and I went to a kona-ya (flour shop) in Ikebukuro, Tokyo called Hokutou Seifun. They hold soba and udon noodle-making classes on the second floor of their storefront. Our fingerless noodle master was dedicated to his craft. HOKUTOU SEIFUN Minami Ikebukuro 1-15-22 Toshima-ku, Tokyo T: 03-3971-7131
