This is the plan for you to experience the whole process of soba-making, using a mixing bowl per person. If your party has 3 to 4 people, two people share a bowl . Please make sure to bring an apron, a handkerchief, and a hand towel. Kamakura Hase Shiori-an is located only one minute away from a national treasure, Kamakura Daibutsu. You can easily experience soba-making right after visiting the Daibutsu.
First of all, there will be an explanation on how to make soba and then you will actually start making. Soba-making can be separated into several steps; you will experience the whole process of this soba-making. After the cooking, you can decide how your soba will be finished into a soba dish. You can choose one out of four types of menu. Then you can eat your soba while leaning the traditional etiquette of eating soba. With a soba chef and an English textbook, even a beginner can learn deeply about real soba. Also, don’t worry if you are a vegetarian/vegan, we have an alternative menu for you.
Soba-making at Kamakura Hase Shiori-an has an original way of making soba noodles called ”twin-dragon style". The method enables even a beginner to make Juwari soba (100% buckwheat ) which has firm texture and smooth feeling in the throat.
We are very selective in choosing buckwheat flour; we only use those from the famous production districts in Japan, which are Hokkaido, Aomori, and Gunma. Merely in two hours, you will learn about Japanese cuisine, about historic soba, and about how to make and eat the soba. Also, during the plan, you will be able to make a video for your memory that may liven up your SNS. After feeling the history at Kamakura Daibutsu, why don’t you try the exclusive soba-making at Kamakura Hase Shiori-an?
