Wanko-soba (otherwise known as buckwheat noodles) is the local cuisine of Iwate and is eaten in a very unique and entertaining manner. As soon as you finish the first bowlful, a server flings a fresh ball of noodles into the empty bowl with a wild cry and keeps on filling it until you have had enough! Only about a mouthful of noodles is served each time, so if you are an adult male you should be able to eat about 50-60 bowls. Some say that this tradition stems from when landowners hospitably served their guests until they were full. It is now known throughout Japan as a specialty of Morioka and Hanamaki. The trick to eating a lot is to slurp it down without chewing.

Help?

My dearest friend’s mother just went into a diabetic coma this morning. She and I were pretty close and I really don’t know what to say or do to try and help the situation, or if I can.

She hasn’t woken up at all and has been having seizures in the hospital. It’s making me question life and relationships in general.

What do I do?

Please pray for her ♥
