Matsuba Chaya


Most of the soba shops at Jindaiji make their noodles to the traditional nippachi ("two-eight") formula, adding two parts of wheat flour to eight of buckwheat. The natural gluten in the wheat flour binds the buckwheat flour together, so the noodles do not fall apart. Just a few -- Matsuba Chaya among them -- have mastered the skill of preparing their noodles solely from buckwheat flour.

In line with COVID-19 guidelines, the government is strongly requesting that residents and visitors exercise caution if they choose to visit bars, restaurants, music venues and other public spaces.
