Matsuba, Kyoto (松葉 京都), Japan

The Soba noodle in Kyoto is noodle on the soy source braised Pacific herring with Kyoto style low salty soup. All things in Kyoto are special, Soba, Ramyen, Japanese food, entertainment in Ozashiki(お座敷), Geiki and Maiko wearing Kimono, old temple and shrine, Old palaces (Palace in Japan is Only for emperor. The buildings were sometimes moved to rebuild in the temples as Chishaku-in (智積院)), mountains and rivers. These were continuous building and keeping for one thousand and three hundred years, from Ancient to Future. On walking around the small space in Kyoto, we seem to have the small class of history, Musashi Miyamoto, Heike and Genji, Nobunaga and Yoshitsune Minamoto. Each religious facility has the long nalative history.  
The Nishin Soba (herring Soba noodle) was established in Meiji era, one hundred years ago. The Kyoto's signature Soba noodle does not have so long history in Kyoto. The herring is reasonable and easy to process and good preserved fish for Kyoto. Kyoto was capital and large city in Japan but place was difficult to get fresh fish because the location is very far from the sea.The herrings were good and reasonable fish for the Kyoto people.
 What I just to say is I like this Soba noodle.
The texture of the noodle is like Nobita(see here), but it nicely matched the Kyoto Dashi soup stock which has low salty but nice flavours. Please enjoy this noodle with Shichi-mi(Nana-mi 七味).
