100% Buckwheat Soba-Making Activity (With Mortar Experience)
Make Your Own Soba From Square One
Enjoy the castle town of Izushi by making your own Izushi Sara Soba (buckwheat noodles).
Participants experience every detailed step of creating Izushi Sara Soba, a delicacy unique to this historic Edo-style town, starting from the very first stage of grinding 100% pure buckwheat using a traditional stone mortar.
The traditional method of grinding the buckwheat in a stone mortar involves grinding only small amounts at a time so that no heat from friction is produced and no flavor is lost.
After grinding the buckwheat flour, mix the dough with water, knead it, stretch it, fold it, cut it, and boil it with the help of an experienced artisan. Afterwards, enjoy your soba with chilled Japanese soup stock called dashi, daikon (radish), grated yam, wasabi (Japanese horseradish), spring onions, and/or raw egg.
