Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

Sue, for those places I went in Osaka, i did not see this pickled Sakura . You can get in Nishiki market Kyoto. There is only one stall in this market selling this . I also bought in another shop, I need to dig out the photo then only can tell you.

Anonymous said...

hi sonia...ok many thanks for the info...will ask my friend to try and look for it in kyoto ...cheers

Lori said...

This is a beautiful dish. I've only had soba warm so I definitely need to try it as a cold dish.

lena said...

i;ve not tasted a cold soba before, only in soup, thanks for sharing your recipe, simple and yet looks good!
