Flying noodle – Miyazaki, Japan

Right next to the Takachiho Gorge there were some intriguing food stalls. At this place, ‘you snooze or you lose’ had a new meaning. That’s right, the noodle floated along the bamboo, but not into your bowl… if you didn’t catch it in time, they just fly off the cliff. This style of serving udon was the regional specialty, nagashi somen 😀takachiho-miyazaki-japan-3652

Thanks to my hubby for the demo, this was the 3rd take… had a beer, that was not helping lol


Where is this place? Takachiho Gorge – refer to my previous post

Like udon? Check out the making of udon at Nakano school – Kotohira, Kagawa


Coming soon: Devil’s wash board, Aoshima. Also in Miyazaki prefecture, Japan.
