Laws regulating consumption were enacted by the shogunate during the Edo period.
At the time, people were not allowed to wear gaudily-colored kimonos; this resulted in the creation of Shijuhaccha Hyakunezumi (48 Shades of Brown and 100 Shades of Gray)—subtle shades of brown and gray for dyeing—which gave rise to Japan’s unique culture of diverse colors.
The culture of soba or buckwheat noodles also developed during the Edo period. It was enjoyed in a wide range of styles, which can be experienced here in Soba and Cafe Shijuhaccha Hyakunezumi.
Our soba noodles can be eaten with our special kombu dashi stock either by dipping the noodles into it or pouring it over the noodles; it could also be eaten as they are.
Guests are free to combine any of the many different condiments available.
