Savoring Tradition: Hanabusa’s Soba Artistry in Fukagawa

Hanabusa is an authentic haven for soba artisans nestled in downtown Fukagawa, guided by a masterful proprietor. Step into a realm where freshly ground and handcrafted soba noodles await, complemented by an array of culinary delights in a welcoming ambiance.

Hanabusa offers three distinctive soba varieties: Inaka, Edomae, and Sarashina. Each offering tells a tale of texture and aroma—Inaka, robust and rustic; Edomae, a harmonious symphony of fragrance and bite; Sarashina, renowned for its smoothness and impeccable texture.

Delight in the meticulous craftsmanship behind both soba and udon noodles, lovingly prepared by hand. Indulge in the Tokusei Tempura Soba/Udon, a lavish dish featuring oversized prawns and Edomae-style conger eel tempura.

As evening descends, Hanabusa transforms into an izakaya haven, offering a variety of small plates to complement the leisurely atmosphere. Tucked away from the bustling Monzen-nakacho area, Hanabusa invites you to immerse yourself in tranquility while relishing culinary excellence.
