I will start by saying that Japanese-speakers do not say 「いいえ」 nearly as often as English-speakers say "No". 「いいえ」 is not an everyday word for many of us the same way "No" is for English-speakers. In Japanese, we answer questions negatively mainly by negating the main verb, adjective or noun used in the question itself. To the question "Wanna eat soba ...
