About nagashi somen:
"Nagashi" comes from the verb "nagasu" (流す) which literally means "to flow".
Nagashi-somen (流しそうめん) is somen (thin, white Japanese noodles made from wheat flour) that you need to catch using chopsticks as it flows past you on a water slide made of bamboo.
Between 794-1185 also known as the Nara and Heian periods, the popularity of somen reached the Imperial Court. It was during these times when somen was served on special occasions. In fact, even Shintos and Buddhists encouraged people to eat somen particularly during the Tanabata Festival (every 7th of July) because of its healing power to prevent serious illnesses–a tradition that has been kept going all these years.
The dish is very simple, and very refreshing. Perfect for the summer heat!
None! Come and have fun with your fellow Japanese and Taiwanese community
