Tachigui Soba


Sayama Soba is a tachigui soba shop, meaning you eat Soba standing up. Places like this are pretty common here, especially the ones inside the train stations. And usually we hear that the quality isn't very good, but the one inside Tokorozawa station is actually really popular.

You can choose either Soba (buckwheat noodle) or Udon (wheat/flour noodle) and all the noodle dishes are about 350yen.

Sometimes when you get off the train, even if you're not hungry, the aroma of soba will make you want to eat it before heading back home.

I did this today as a matter of fact. Although I opted for udon, and I was just outside of the Tamachi train station instead of Tokorozawa.

I prefer udon over soba...but I like to eat cold soba with seaweed and wasabi:)

arabesque, this is something you'll want to try if you're ever in Japan :)

Al, I didn't know they had one at Tamachi Stn, how was it? Hope you enjoyed it :)

White Oleander, I like udon better, too! You like wasabi??? Wow, that's still something I can't eat :P

I love wasabi...I always put a lot of it in sashimi/sushi.

May I ask how long you have been living in Japan?
