The legendary author, Naoya Shiga, as well as authors of the Shirakabaha, and many more, visited the springs of Kinosaki. There, they experienced the 7 hot springs, lively hot spring district full of delicacies like crab, and the beauty of the surrounding nature, such as Maruyama River and Genbudō, which is said to have formed over 160,000 years ago due to volcanic activity. Now, artists have taken the place of writers who came to relax their bodies and minds and to arouse their imaginations.

Izushi Soba

Izushi Soba

Izushi Soba

Izushi`s speciality dish is Izushi soba which are noodles made of buckwheat. They are eaten with the Japanese soup stock dashi. Daikon (radish), grated yam, wasabi (Japanese horseradish), spring onions and raw egg (optional) are added to the dashi to taste. The freshly made noodles are then dipped in this soup mixture and eaten. At the end of the meal, the remaining soup is mixed with sobayu (the hot water in which the noodles were boiled) and can be drunk as a sort of tea. Izushi soba is served on lots of small Izushi ceramic plates. Enjoy as many plates as you want and see who can get the biggest stack!
