A specialty of Hanamaki! In this event, you can experience the traditional food, Wanko soba, which has been around since the Edo period. It is said that Wanko soba was first created when the farmers of Hanamaki served many portions of soba in small bowls to a samurai lord from Nanbu Domain, who was staying there on his trip of duty to Edo, the capital.
In honor of its history, at Kinkontei, we provide you with a traditional Kamishimo apron to enjoy your soba like a lord. After a briefing about Wanko soba, the feast starts with the sound of a drum. Families and friends have a great time as they watch their pile of finished soba bowls stack higher and higher as they eat. Because we serve you from across the table in front of you, you can concentrate on finishing your bowls of soba without the staff getting in the way. Also, enjoy freshly fried tempura and a cup of coffee after your meal.
It is an exciting event that anyone, from children to adults, can enjoy.
