Food is one of the major draw cards for visiting Japan!
Especially in winter when the conditions are crisp and cold there is nothing better than a hot pot or nabe or a hot bowl of noodles. Japan has a great range of noodle dishes too; soba, udon and ramen are 3 of the most popular. Here is a little write up on a restaurant in Tokyo where you can make your own Ramen!
In Nozawa there are also a few families that will welcome you in to their homes to make your own Soba Noodles.
It is pretty cool as can see the whole process from the beginning and then enjoy a hot bowl of soba noodles you made yourself at the end. Just ask us about it when you next visit Nozawa.
