The Kodaiwan & Soba Set is made in collaboration with Honke Owariya, a confectionary turned soba shop with a history of 557 years.
Soba is also associated with good fortune because its component, buckwheat flour, was used by craftspeople to collect scattered gold leaf off the floor. For this reason, Honke Owariya has the character for 'treasure' on its entrance Noren.
Share good fortune with someone you care for by making your own Nishin Soba, dried herring with buckwheat soba noodles, served in our handcrafted Kodaiwan bowl.
This set includes:
1 Kodaiwan bowl
1 set of Nishin Soba Set, which serves two people
