If you are 100% gluten-free look for the 100% buckwheat soba, or King Soba brand noodles.
Ponzu can be found at most grocery stores in the "Asian" or "International" section. Make sure, for this recipe, you buy the plain citrus ponzu without added soy sauce/shoyu.
If you don't have a julienne peeler for the carrots, simply peel them into noodles with a normal peeler.
