There is a saying that the custom to eat these noodles lets all the hardships of the last year fade ​because soba noodles are so easy to cut. The custom differs depending on the region and they can be also known as unki soba, fuku soba, kure soba, tsugomori soba, misoka soba, or jyumyo soba. However, no matter the region they usually symbolize a long life.
