Somen hand-made by Miwa Yamamoto somen artisans who boast the finest skills. This item boasts fineness superior to other somen noodles, and you could say that they are noodle artwork. So fine - a 10g strand makes around 300 noodles. Superb, aged (2-year) Shiraga with superb fineness. These ultra-fine Shiraga noodles are often used in the soups of high-quality restaurants.
These have been made with commitment for more than 290 years, and have 3 unique features!
1. Thinness: Traditional hand-pulling techniques are still used painstakingly in various steps.
Yamamoto's somen are carefully crafted over a period of around 36 hours using hand-pulling techniques passed down for more than 1300 years.
2. Safety: Quality is created through carefully selected natural ingredients and strict management.
The wheat is a special flour of the manufacturer which brings out flavor in the somen. The salt used is also a special salt that contains lots of minerals. In regards to quality, there are more than 30 items to be tested.
3. Texture: Exquisite hand-pulled somen with a different texture and swallowing sensation.
Yamamoto's hand-pulled somen are only made during the cold period from fall to spring. The noodles are made with a well-balanced reduced salt taste, and by leaving them in the manufacturer's own warehouse during the rainy season to "mature", pleasantly textured somen with firm resilience and sweetness are created.
[About somen's fineness]
The finer the somen, the higher the quality. This is because, highly skilled noodle makers are needed to make ultra-fine items, and so they are difficult to make and cannot be made in large volume. Choose the fineness in accordance with your preference.
