Taniyama Jigenji Somen Nagashi

Soba / Udon
This somen nagashi restaurant is located at the Jigenji Temple Ruins, a historic site famous for its cherry blossoms. Guests can enjoy eating somen (thin wheat noodles) served in a fountain-like circular trough fed with cold artesian well water while listening to the sound of a river from mid March to the end of October. Around 60,000 people visit each year to enjoy this fixture of summer in Kagoshima. Somen nagashi is a regional variation of nagashi somen, which has a history dating back to the Edo period. Nagashi somen, which is served in straight troughs of flowing water, has been enjoyed as early as the Tenpo era (1831-1845) according to historical documents.

    慈眼寺公園へ桜を見るために出向き、自然遊歩道を1周歩いている時にありました。鹿児島では多くの場所で「そうめん流し」を見かけますので、鹿児島県人のソウルフードなのでしょうね。流れてはおらず、グルグル回るだけですが。今回は両棒餅(じゃんぼもち)だけいただきました。そうめん流し以外にも川魚料理や鰻もありました。周辺はモミジが多いので紅葉の時期も良さそうなロケーションでした。
