    Soba Noodle Lunch

    February 21, 2017 in Japan ⋅ ☀️ -1 °C

    It is a very cold -7° and has been snowing all day - I have never seen so much snow! We are pretty cold and wet so popped in to this Soba Noodle restaurant for lunch and an escape from the cold.

    Togakushi is well known for its Soba Noodles, with the making of these dating back to the Heian Period.

    Our soba was so good. Once the soba noodles are eaten you are provided with soba-yu which is the broth the noodles were cooked in which you drink. The water absorbs the nutrients from the soba making it good to drink following your meal. This was a fantastic way to end our day of trekking through the snow.
