Japanese soba noodles are made by processing buckwheat flour, which is made from a type of grain called the buckwheat plant, and is a typical Japanese cuisine which has a long history like sushi, and tempura.
Morisoba is eaten one mouthful at a time by dipping the noodles in sauce with chopsticks. For Kakesoba, the noodles are put into a steaming bowl of hot soup.
Tempura is a traditional dish which represents Japan, and is made using ingredients such as seafood and vegetables, and is dipped in a batter made with flour and beaten eggs and fried in oil.
The ingredients are called ‘Tane’ (which means ’seeds’), and are dipped in a batter made from flour and eggs, and are fried in cooking oil using utensils such as a tempura pot.
For Japanese it is a very familiar dish, and was originally a favorite dish of the common people during the Edo period, and was eaten at outside food stands.
Japanese Sake is a rice wine which is made mainly from rice, malt, and water. Japanese Sake is originally meant to be drank at room temperature. However, a trend called "Atsukan"(heating the sake bottle in warm water) spread from the upper-class-society.
Thanks to the development of cooling equipment starting from the late 20th century, cooling sake, or drinking it with ice also spread as a trend.
