Many cultures and countries have their traditional “lucky” foods, and Japan is no exception. Soba Noodles, or year-crossing noodle, is a Japanese tradition dating back to the Edo period (1603-1867).
Soba Noodles symbolize letting go of the hardships of the current year and starting fresh in the New Year, because soba noodles are resilient, yet break easily while eating. It is also said that eating long soba noodles symbolize a long life.
