Enjoy our chef-owner Teiichi Sakurai's New Year's Eve Omakase (6 courses) at our soba counter. Our guests will be greeted with Krug Champange. Soba, our house specialty, is always the finale. Soba is even more special on NYE.
The custom of eating soba on New Year's Eve started in Japan's Edo era (1603-1868). There are various theories as to why this has become a tradition. One suggests that its easy-to-cut properties, when compared to other types of Japanese noodles, is representative of cutting away any bad luck (yaku in Japanese) built up over the course of the year.
