Learn how to make soba

Here, you can take a look at the attached soba factory or try oroshi soba (soba served with grated radish, spring onions, fish flakes, and a light soy sauce) at the restaurant.

For a hands-on experience at Echizen Soba Village, try making soba yourself. Under the instructors' guidance, you'll be able to make two servings of soba, which you can either take home or have prepared to eat in the restaurant.
