Okinawa soba is one of the island’s most beloved soul foods. Unlike soba found in mainland Japan, the chewy noodles used in this dish are made from wheat flour and are more similar to udon. Traditionally the noodles are served in a warm bowl of comforting broth and topped with slices of stewed pork belly, fishcake, scallions, and red pickled ginger. Pair this easy-to-make broth with your favorite noodles and you’re one step closer to enjoying Okinawa soba at home!

Ishigaki No Shio’s soba soup packs use bonito flakes made from skipjack tuna line caught by fishermen in Yonaguni. These fish, found in the waters of Japan’s westernmost island, provide the soup with a unique wild fish flavor that is accented by the smokiness of the drying process. Kelp powder and Ishigaki sea salt give the soup a touch of brine while kokuto (Okinawa black sugar) adds a subtle sweetness that perfectly ties together all the flavors. 

For centuries people on the southwesternmost islands of Okinawa have harvested salt from the waters of Nagura Bay. However, the practice became less common when commercialized salt became available. Ishigaki No Shio revived the practice in 1997 and has been producing salt and other products that utilize locally sourced ingredients ever since. Mindful of the delicate balance of ecosystems, the company aims to match the pace of nature and work in ways that are friendly to people and nature alike. Today the company uses its patented production methods to create award-winning products. It even offers workshops to share the wonders of salt and the sea with visitors to the island.
