Today, at the Hinode-ya restaurant near Mikuni, we had the opportunity to make our own buckwheat noodles (Soba), from the doe, to the rolling and finally the cutting. Then we ate a meal totally composed of soba, this time eaten cold, in two different styles.
Even the dessert was cold noodles!
Great people, great experience and as always great food!

Today we are making our own Soba (buckwheat noodles)!
Last evening in Mikuni as tomorrow we are first learning to make our own Soba (noodles) and then off to Kyoto.
But right now it’s time to meet the Marble Meat in person!
Ichi Ban Boschi, Mikuni’s best Korean Grill was simply a dream.

This picture was taken at the Myōryū-ji temple in Kanazawa – also called the Ninja temple for its many hidden staircases, escape routes, secret chambers, concealed tunnels and trick doors.
Just really dig those Kimonos. You just see so little of them today.
Dave is off to visit the Ninja Castle!
Iza is the supermarket at Mikuni.
You could spend hours looking at the stands. Here is just a short selection. Enjoy!
