Try this Izushi specialty
In Izushi castle town, brimming with atmosphere and nostalgic to the Edo era, enjoy this famous local buckwheat noodle dish, Izushi ‘Sara’ soba. Made from carefully-selected domestic buckwheat flour and fresh high-quality Izushi water, Mikura’s Izushi Sara Soba is all diligently crafted using traditional methods by skilled artisans.
Made from natural Rishiri kelp, Mikoji bonito, and a mixture of soy sauce, sugar, and mirin; the method for making the soba’s dipping sauce has been carefully refined since the restaurant’s founding in 1994. Enjoy your soba with a generous drenching in their specialty dipping sauce.
Not only can you order a tasty soba dish at the restaurant, but you can also experience a soba-making lesson, instructed by the soba-masters of Mikura themselves! Under the shop owner’s guidance, this fun and challenging experience can be enjoyed by couples, families, and friends alike.
After the experience, enjoy eating your very own freshly-made soba!
How to make Soba noodles
Truly anyone can do it. Here we'll show you a glimpse of how. It only takes a day to learn, but years to master!
Mix the soba flour with hands until it hardens
Once it hardens, ball into one large lump
Roll until the surface of the ball is smooth
Flatten out the ball with a rolling pin. Sprinkle flour on the dough at regular intervals, this evens out the consistency
Keep rolling the dough
Roll until the flattened dough is about 1 millimeter thick and crepe-like
Fold the dough several times
The completed soba 'crepe'
Slice the soba into 1 mm noodles with a special blade
Boil with plenty of water
Drain the soba and...
... bon appétit!
