Mt Fuji Seafood Houto Noodles Cooking Lesson

Have an authentic experience of making Houto noodles by hand! Houto is a local cuisine of Yamanashi Prefecture. It's a simple dish featuring noodles made from wheat flour, cooked with seasonal vegetables in a miso-flavored soup

Houto is a regional dish originating from Yamanashi Prefecture, in the north of Mt. Fuji. It is usually made by stewing wide and flat wheat noodles, vegetables and mushrooms in a miso-flavored soup. Different from udon, soba or ramen, the charm of Houto is a combination of noodles with a variety of ingredients and the thick soup. Since a long time ago, Houto has been loved as a staple food in the farm villages and is still popular as one of delicious Japanese noodle dishes. 

This cooking class is held at Houto Institute that suggests ways to enjoy the regional dish even more. You can make authentic Houto noodles from scratch by kneading wheat flour by hand. A beginner need not worry as an instructor will explain how to make it carefully. Traditionally, Houto is often cooked with pumpkin that gives a sweet flavor to the soup and is good for prevention of colds. The specialty dish of the Institute is fresh seafood Houto featuring big prawns, salmon, and scallops. Yamanashi is an inland prefecture but the people there like seafood a lot. The rich soup taken from seafood broth is so delicious that most of the customers would eat it up to the last drop. 

Houto is basically a home cooking so the seasonings and arrangement vary from home to home. You will learn some unique ways of eating Houto only the locals know, such as Houto cooked with potato and topped with butter. The history and interesting episodes of Houto will be introduced in the workshop. Everyone from adults to children can join the workshop and enjoy cooking Houto in a friendly atmosphere. As it is an indoor activity, you do not need to worry about the weather. Why not come with your family, friends, and sweetheart after visiting Lake Kawaguchiko, a viewing spot of Mt. Fuji, and enjoy the local cuisine?
