Hi all,
This week's article is on Nagashi Somen AKA "flowing noodles". Nagashi Somen is pretty rare even in Japan, so if you have the chance to, you should try them. smile

I've included one picture in the article, but if you want some close ups, feel free to ask and I'll post them in the forum.

I wish I could enjoy Nagashi Somen in Japan! It sounds fantastic! Fresh and refreshing!

I love somen, and it would be so fun to catch some noodles as they float by in the flume.

Thanks for your wonderful pictures. It really adds authenticity to your articles and makes me feel as though I am "there."

Thank you~
Here are a couple more pix of Nagashi Somen...

Was taking a picture with my left hand while simultaneously attempting to grab the somen with my right...


One batch of somen down, many more to go!

Yes, it is. smile

Here's a closer look at where the somen that wasn't caught ended up.


After the Battle To Catch Somen has ended, the waiter passed me the basket... Apparently, I missed a LOT of somen.

Wow, they must have served a lot of somen if that is the amount you "missed!"

Oh, how I am craving somen now. But isn't somen a summer food? Is the restaurant open during the winter?

And, does every diner have his own flume or are several diners seated along one flume. I wonder if people would be concerned about dipping their chopsticks into the flume water after others have done the same, putting their chopsticks into their mouths?
