Experience Details
Sharing Mt. Fuji with neighboring Shizuoka Prefecture, Yamanashi Prefecture is a scenic retreat located just east of Tokyo. Lake Kawaguchi, with its stunning views of the mountain, is one spot that attracts travelers. But that’s not all! Yamanashi is also renowned for its delicious local food culture. It is a major producer of peaches and grapes in Japan, and has a thriving wine industry. The prefecture has a culture of flour-based dishes, like Yoshida udon, a specialty of Fujiyoshida City. Hoto is another such flour-based dish, and it’s one of the most famous local specialties of Yamanashi. The long, thick hoto noodles are made from wheat flour, and are boiled and then simmered with miso soup, alongside vegetables like kabocha (Japanese pumpkin). Hoto noodle dishes are much more widespread throughout Yamanashi Prefecture than Yoshida udon, and the popularity of hoto as a local Yamanashi specialty is closely related to the climate of the prefecture. In this hands-on cooking class in Yamanashi, you’ll learn how to make hoto noodles from scratch, with English-speaking staff. A heartwarming soup filled with vegetables and characterized by its firm and chewy noodles, this hoto recipe is the classic comfort food that you’ll want to return to again and again. This hoto cooking class in Yamanashi is recommended for those who want to enjoy a hands-on experience with family and friends, are interested in making hoto noodles from scratch, and want a rainy day activity in a scenic sightseeing location with English support.
