TOKYOHi I am Ito. I have been honing my craft for more than 21 years. After retirement, I decided to go back to school to learn soba from the best and quickly rose to excellence. My teacher at the time then asked me to open his own school in 1999. I did and there taught to over 8,000 students among which many became professionals opening restaurants and schools. Doing that I received a lot of attention from the local and national newspapers and television where I taught my techniques to many celebrities. My fame and technique are even international as I regularly go overseas to teach the Art of Soba on the new continent.
