Learn from the Locals and share the Delicacies of Nagano with your Family and Friends!

Shinshu Soba noodles is another common local speciality. But why just eat them when you can learn to make them as well?

Nothing builds an appetite like a day skiing or boarding Japanese powder, and nothing hits the spot like Japanese mountain food. But that moment of taste induced happiness need not only last as long as your time in Nozawa; why not try your hand at learning some classic staples of Japanese mountain life?

Soba noodles have been a staple of the Japanese diet for hundreds of years, and are ideal for filling hungry bellies. Learn to make these iconic noodles from the very start. From kneading, to folding, to cutting; the noodles are in your hands all the way till you pile it generously onto your plate!
