・Hoto noogle
・Tendon (A bowl of rice topped with tempura and a sweet seasoning sauce)

In this cooking class, we can cook "Hoto" together! Hoto is one of the most popular Yamanashi's local dish. It’s different from "Udon". Udon is wheat noodle. And the noodles are thick. However, Hoto noodles are flat and wide. And, a lot of ingredients such as pumpkin, chinese cabbage, shiitake, carrot, and leeks are included.

First, this experience begins with making the dough for the noodles. After that, you extend the dough with a noodle bar and cut it with a kitchen knife.

Tendon is a dish with tempura on the rice. Tempura is seafood or vegetables that have been covered in batter and fried in oil. The batter is made by dissolving flour and egg in water.

You can learn how to cooking Hoto and Temdon.

About Host



Hi, I'm Shunta.

I am from Gifu Prefecture and moved to Yamanashi to work. My job is to welcome guests from all over the world at the guest house and to have many people enjoy making yamanashi's local dishes.

The name of the local dish is "Hoto". Hotois is a local dish from Prefecture and is like udon. If you come to Fujiyoshida City, you should eat it. Let's experience making local dishes with me at the guest house where Mt. Fuji is seen.
Thank you.
