Zaru Soba, or Cold Soba noodles, are one of Japan’s most popular summer dishes. Soba noodles are typically served in a bamboo basket with a savory dipping sauce, Mentsuyu, making them an ideal summer meal! Unfortunately, many people are unable to enjoy this delectable dish due to a Buckwheat allergy. This disease affects part of Japanese people, but not all of them are aware of that and like peanuts, soba can cause anaphylactic shock. After all, you don’t want to mess with this nasty allergy, especially when you’re traveling.

Japan came up with the perfect solution to keep their customers safe: a temporary tattoo used as an allergy test. If you are allergic, your skin will turn red on the tattoo motif’s plastic sections. Because these symbols are based on traditional Ukiyo-e Japanese art, the striking red details add an extra cool effect, making you wish these tattoos weren’t temporary.
