Watching HANABI, let’s have excellent noodle “SOMEN” made at Shodo-shima!
SOMEN are very thin–less than 1.3 mm in diameter–white Japanese noodles made of wheat flour. The noodles are usually served cold. In the summer, sōmen chilled with ice is a popular meal to help stay cool.
At SOMEN party, we’ll offer “nagashi sōmen” (流しそうめん flowing noodles) at the party.
You place The noodles in a long flume of bamboo which carries clear, ice-cold water. As the sōmen pass by, you need to pluck them out with chopsticks and dip them in tsuyu. Catching the noodles requires a fair amount of dexterity.
Furthermore, we might watch fabulous HANABI(fire works) at Jingu from the party space.
