minnie in iwate

This postcard came from Iwate, whose capital in particular has long been known for wanko soba, mouth-size servings of soba served in tiny bowls. An early form of eating competition, the idea is to eat as many bowls as possible. The card shows Minnie Mouse as a server in a Morioka soba shop. For me, it's a way too exhausting way to eat. I'll take my zarusoba straight.
