Cooking and tasting event of Kasuga Hakutaku Udon was held

Hakutaku Udon Making and Tasting

A cooking and tasting event of Kasuga Hakutaku Udon was held at a local restaurant Shiki Shiki in Nara City on Feburuary 13, 2016.

It was part of the marketing reseach tour we organized to seek avenues to export products of Nara to overseas. Food experts from the United States invited to the tour got a hands-on experience of udon making and later cooked their own dishes using Hakutaku Udon. Attendees who tasted them loved the modern flavor of the traditional Japanese noodles.

There might come a time when Hakutaku Udon will be accepted as new cooking ingredient in the United States.

"Modern Kasuga Hakutaku Dance" was performed at Kikuichi

It is said that present-day udon noodles have their roots in the hakutaku made and served to Imperial envoys by a group of shrine maidens while ceremonial gagaku music and dancing were performed at Kasuga-taisha Grand Shrine in the Heian period (794-1185). In commemoration of the reproduction of Hakutaku Udon, "Modern Kasuga Hakutaku Dance" was performed at Kikuichi main store on February 12, 2016.
