Experience making handmade soba at our “Soba Dojo”, located next to our soba restaurant. We will make “Nihachi” soba, which is made of 20% wheat flour and 80% buckwheat (soba) flour.
Process of Making Soba:
Mix and sift → add water → mix in water → roll into small balls → knead dough → push down with body and roll dough → flip over and over while pushing the air out → roll into flat circle → roll into a square → straighten out → fold → cut → throw on small amount of flour → finish.
Instructors will guide you through the entire process of making soba in an easy-to-understand way. Take home the delicious and aromatic soba you made as a souvenir.
*Note that the workshop may be cancelled due the local COVID-19 virus situation. Please contact us for details.

The buckwheat (soba) flour is grown in our own fields in Natori City. It is carefully dried and grinded every morning with the flour mill at our restaurant. The tall and large grains of "Hitachi-aki soba" (a soba brand developed in the late 1970s in Ibaraki Prefecture) make it fall over easily and become damaged in strong wind or rain. However, the soba taste is very sweet and sticky, and it has a chewy texture when it is cut into soba noodles, and there is no strong sour taste. Not only experienced soba fans, but anyone that loves to eat good food will enjoy the taste of our soba! Soba made from the grinded buckwheat (soba) flour is also available for sale at our on-location shop.
