Tokyo’s Kashiwaya: Soba, Curry, and Irresistible Imagawayaki Delights

Nestled in Tokyo’s Setagaya Ward, Kashiwaya stands as a unique soba establishment, offering both standing and seated dining options for around twenty discerning patrons. As you step inside, a convenient food ticket vending machine greets you on the left, allowing you to secure your culinary choice. Handing this ticket to the kitchen staff, you patiently anticipate the realization of your culinary desires.

While Kashiwaya draws a crowd with its soba offerings, Dishes Japan takes a captivating departure, choosing the delightful “Ai-gake Curry” – a pork curry masterpiece crowned with succulent cuts of pork, whose sweetness dances harmoniously with the onions.


However, Kashiwaya’s fame extends well beyond its soba. The star of the show is their Imagawayaki, sweet-filled pancakes, sold exclusively for takeout.
