HISTORY

Sarashina Horii was established in 1789, the same year that George Washington was inaugurated as the first President of the United States. Word spread about our high-quality noodles and soon they gained favor with the Japanese Imperial household and Shoguns. Today, we have three restaurants in Tokyo and the company is overseen by a ninth-generation member of the Horii family.

Our soba making tradition stretches back over 230 years to a small shop in Tokyo. From there, nine generations have been the stewards of our culinary heritage and unique white soba. Our New York restaurant is the first location outside Japan and we invite you to experience true Japanese soba craftsmanship.
