Azumaya Honten

Soba in Morioka

Customers line up and tour buses roll in for this hugely popular wanko-soba restaurant. As per tradition, the waiter will refill your tiny bowl with soba as soon as you've put the last one down. Fifteen bowls are equivalent to one ordinary bowl, but the average customer will put away 50 (even 200 is not unheard of).
