About
100% hands-on from start to finish, experience a uniquely authentic Japanese Cuisine for yourself! The region of Matsumoto is famous for the quality of its Soba (buckwheat flour noodles), thanks to the exceptional quality of the local environment. Just a short walk from Matsumoto Castle, you can sample this traditional Japanese dish and even have a go at preparing it yourself! The soba-making workshop is an opportunity to get more than just the literal bite of this tradition. Step into the shoes of an apprentice and learn from an experienced soba master! Discover all the basics and learn how to use authentic soba-making tools. The activity is divided into two stages and it’s completely hands-on from start to finish. The best part is you get to eat your own noodles at the end! This is an exciting and enriching experience you can share with family and friends, and an unforgettable way to discover a unique aspect of Japanese cuisine! The Soba master speaks English and Japanese.

It was more than a ton of fun making soba from scratch and realising how easy it is to do at home. The tasting of our own noodles was a treat, accompanied by tempura and tea as extras. So close to the castle, it makes for a nice break in the touring around this beautiful city.
