Shoichi Uchida

State of "making soba daily classroom." He/she tells from how to get soup stock of soba soup.

Boy ten years, clerk ten years, independent 30 years!

 We choose this work, and how much is it already? It is this word to have come out to question called this suddenly.
"Boy ten years, clerk ten years, independent 30 years." Talk about careers 50 years or more fluently, is right Uchida itself.
 Uchida to be the first opportunity when what entered study by the advice of uncle who worked for dried bonito shop in Nihonbashi when we were troubled with workplace after commercial high school graduation advances to on this way. Acquire experience as clerk after the independence of uncle, for noren in keoshitemorai, 1970 to Kitamachi, Nerima-ku. After having held dried bonito shop according to hustle at mall, we move to Asahicho in 1998. That is current Uchida dried bonito shop.

 "It has been already this way person sinew half a century. As dried bonito is material necessary for Japanese dishes, we will think that it does not become outdated from now on. There is pride taking one end of "food culture in Japan" on in this sense. Of course with still wholesale of dried bonito continues retail, too just feelings called specialty store"
 Uchida carrying through the principle of one article of one store in this is characteristic!

It wants to report delicious soba

 It needs reservations, and "making soba daily classroom is open in Uchida dried bonito shop every Sunday, too". It is slightly different from this classroom, others. Of course, at first, it begins with how to get soup stock of soba soup first to tell how to shoot soba. As for the dried bonito becoming basics of soup stock, both type and how to shave vary by use.

 Uchida to "have to be delicious as for delicious shikutemone, soup only in the side". Of how to get, side of soup stock boil, and tell beginner including addition and subtraction carefully. As even if money is strange even if memorizing is bad, it is possible deliciously properly finally; relief! It is sampling and take-out nice plan with.
