A fabulous experience!Reviewed by: Nancy, 2016/06/13
It was a fabulous experience! The taxi driver, Kirohara, was very professional and came to our hotel with our names on a big card so we could identify him. We enjoyed the beautiful scenery along the way. We knew a little bit of Japanese and Kiyohara taught us some new Japanese vocabulary on the way to the farm. We were greeted by Tada and his wife at their store with the soba making class in the room towards the back. It was a hands on class and so much fun:) Tada taught us how to mix and roll the wheat flour by hand into the right consistency for the soba noodles. He carefully showed us how to roll and cut the noodles. Then we rolled and cut the noodles. After, they cooked the noodles creating a hot noodle soup and also a cold noodle soup dish, along with some tempura item. So delicious! Kirohara was so sweet to take pictures for us while we made the soba noodles. When it was time to go, Tada waved good bye from his door until we could no longer see him. What a great trip and activity!!

Wonderful experienceReviewed by: Charlotte, 2016/06/11
It was such a lovely unique way to spend the day. Even with the language barrier we all got along and understood each other perfectly. I would highly recommend this to any food lovers out there who are open to meeting new people. Everyone involved was incredibly helpful and friendly and the food was delicious.
Thank you sooooo much for your comment!! We are very happy to know that you enjoyed the Soba Noodle Making Experience!
Even though Hokkaido is getting famous year by year, not many people have tried unique Hokkaido experience yet.
Hopefully we can welcome you again and your friends in Hokkaido in the future!
Great experience making fresh sobaReviewed by: Jessica, 2015/12/22
My friends and I enjoyed learning how to make fresh soba. We got to taste our food we made, both hot and cold. You even get to take some of the soba home, but since we were traveling internationally, we were unfortunately not able to keep it. I wish we could learn how to make the dipping sauce that goes with the soba. The curry flavored daikon pickles were delicious!
The taxi driver, the farmer's wife, and her assistance were extremely nice. Since they only speak Japanese, it helped to have some Japanese language knowledge. We would be interested in participating in another cooking experience again.
Dear Jessica san,
