Backpackers Hostel "J-Hoppers" & "Hana Hostel"

Nagashi-somen!!!

Hi there .
This is Chika from J-Hoppers Hiroshima guesthouse.

We had a Nagashi-somen party on the 5th of September.
Have you hear of it or tried it before??




The noodles are placed in a long flume of bamboo across the length of the restaurant. The flume carries clear, ice-cold water. 
As the sōmen pass by, diners pluck them out with their chopsticks and dip them in tsuyu.
 Catching the noodles requires a fair amount of dexterity, but the noodles that are not caught by the time they get to the end usually are not eaten, so diners are pressured to catch as much as they can. 
Machines have been designed to simulate this experience at home.

Lots of guest joined the party and we had a good time.
We prepared some toppings for the noodles.

If we have a chance,we are going to throw a party next summer!








We want to extend a big thank-you to you all for your support which resulted in a total of 5100yen being raised for Hiroshima landslide victims.
