Synopsis

Japan has oodles of noodles! Aside from udon, soba, and ramen, there’s chilled tsukemen, stringy somen,  slender sanuki udon, horse chestnut flour noodles (which inspired a figurative term), and noodles named for Go stones. Read about ethnic separation of noodles, as well as manga and films centered on noodles. And see why the names of some non-noodle foods include 麺.
