Pro Soba Delivery Guys1 min read

These days, if we’re hungry, all we have to do is whip out a smartphone, punch a few buttons online, and get a meal delivered to us in minutes. That wasn’t always the case, though, and here in Japan people remember a time when soba buckwheat noodles were delivered by bicycle on the streets, in a very different style to the way it’s delivered now.Although it’s something we’ve looked at before, the topic of soba delivery drivers in the Showa era (1926-1989) is now in the spotlight once again, following a tweet that went viral recently online.The tweet shows a number of photos of old-time soba delivery staff on their bicycles, each one displaying an eye-popping level of skill and dexterity as they balance tray upon tray upon tray of soba meal sets on their shoulders.
