Experience Details
Escape the hustle and bustle of the city and head to the Japanese countryside! Located just north of Tokyo, Saitama is a haven for those seeking a green getaway. Andrew ’Baba’ Rowe–your host–has prepared a selection of beloved summertime activities, some of which he has (physically) handcrafted especially for you. Summertime in Japan is a vibrant and exciting season, filled with fascinating traditions and delightful activities that unite people. One such tradition is Nagashi Soba–served during summer festivals and events. Picture this: Noodles flowing along a sloped bamboo flume, you approach the bamboo flume (bowl and chopsticks in hand), dip your chopsticks into the cold water, catch the noodles, then dip them into your broth-filled bowl and enjoy! Your host has put his own unique spin on this beloved dish by creating a Nagashi Ramen experience! Using a bamboo flume he handcrafted especially for this experience, it features all the same elements but swaps soba noodles for ramen. Why? Andrew ‘Baba’ Rowe is a ramen aficionado and trained chef, who channels his soft spot for these flavorful, bouncy noodles into everything he does–this experience included. Once you’ve reached your peaceful destination, you’ll take part in a Nagashi Ramen experience, release handheld fireworks, and make countless memories among old and new friends! As the heat of summer descends upon the countryside, the lush green landscapes come alive with an array of blooming flowers and buzzing insects. The Saitama countryside offers a refreshing escape from the hustle and bustle of city life, and it's the perfect place to immerse yourself in Japan’s unique seasonal traditions.
