“SYUNKATO SOBA” opened along Le Thanh Ton Street in the center of Ho Chi Minh City, which is popular for Japanese residents. The site is located in a cluttered town with busy traffic, surrounded by overflowing people, cars, and bikes. Upon entering the restaurant, away from such bustle of the city, a quiet and comfortable space welcomes the guests as if entering a different world. Our intention was the creation of a space for people to feel “Japan” by eating soba cuisine prepared by a soba master. The existing building has a narrow shape with about 5m width and 25m depth. The first floor consists of the bar with a 10m counter made of solid wood from Africa, the soba making area surrounded by glass walls that faces the main street, the kitchen at the back and the counter kitchen connected to it.
