Savor the taste of the mountains through handmade countryside soba


Let's enjoy freshly made soba!

At "Nashi no Kihara" located in the mountains from which you can see Mt. Sanbe in the distance, you can make dishes using vegetables and fruits harvested from the fields as well as local dishes such as "hakozushi (box sushi)" alongside Ms. Hisako. Her father Mr. Kazuo is a master at making soba noodles. Here, you can grind buckwheat sourced locally using a stone mortar and use this flavorful buckwheat flour to make soba noodles under the guidance of Mr. Kazuo. Water is added to buckwheat flour to form soba dough, which is kneaded properly and rolled out. A soba knife is then used to slice the dough into soba noodles. Soba noodles of varying thickness are then boiled in water that has been heated in a kettle before they are cooled in cold water. Soba that has been freshly made with your own hands tastes exceptional.

Dust the kneading surface evenly with flour and roll out the soba dough to an even thickness.
