Today I want to share the photos from my friend and customer in Japan. Felt coasters are styled with Japanese traditional table wares and especially, with soba noodle made from buckwheat flour which Akira makes by himself! Soba noodles are served either chilled with a dipping sauce, or in hot broth as a noodle soup. Japanese summer is very hot and soba noodle is often served chilled as the photos show. It's delicious and healthy food that I want you to try at least once in your life :). I am so surprised that he combined the wool coasters with summer assortment! I think they go well, don't they?
Akira is an enthusiastic and skilled soba noodle maker who is aming to open soba noodle restaurant some day. He has beautiful site here, but unfortunately it's in Japanese only. I hope you will taste his soba noodle when he opens his restaurant in Japan :).
