Japanese cooking!! Let’s make Udon noodle♪

Have you ever heard Udon? It’s a kind of Japanese noodle such as Ramen and Soba.
Udon is simply made from flour, water and salt.




After mix all ingredients and knead, let the Udon dough sit for about 1 hour to 1.5 hour.
Choose either Shodo Calligraphy class or Origami making class while you are waiting.




Then roll it out and cut it!!
It’s served cold Udon and Dashi soup, “Zaru Udon” style.
It is the best way to taste of Udon:)
Dashi is made from fish called bonito. *Be able to change seaweed or mushroom for vegetarians and vegans.

You will receive a recipe to continue your pursuit of Japanese culture even after returning home:)

For an exhibition

I was working on this huge calligraphy for an exhibition at Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum.
It took me 40 minutes to finish writing just one paper. Japanese calligraphy is tough sometimes.

In August 3rd to 10th!! It’s free admission if you are around Ueno/ Tokyo, please come to visit:)
I can of course guide you if you let me know that you are coming!!

They chose one of letters, Kanji then practiced on white paper. At the end, they wrote it on the fan called Uchiwa for souvenir.
We use the fan in summer!!
means happiness, means love and means bond (strong relationships with your family and friends).

We hope that everyone liked and enjoyed the experience:)
