With nearly 400 years of history, Inaniwa Udon has been praised for hundreds of years by Japanese gourmands for its smooth and silky texture. Passed down by generations, Inaniwa Udon is considered one of ‘Three Great’ or ‘Three Famous’ udon recipes in Japan, sometimes being referred to a culinary masterpiece of Japan.

Udon is typically produced in 3 days, however they believe that adding one day to the process maxims the noodles flavour and texture.  Inaniwa Udon is made entirely by hand without the use of machines. Taking extra time to mature the noodles creates a smooth and silky texture which produces a pleasant “nodogoshi” (sensation when swallowing). The nodogoshi of Inaniwa Udon is highly regarded among Japanese gourmands.

What makes Inaniwa udon noodles exception is the amount of tubular bubbles contained in the dried noodles. This is the direct result of their kneading technique. Because of the bubbles, the taste of the noodles Inaniwa Udon has a smoother texture while retaining its consistency.

To see how cook these noodles please visit: 

Akita gets about 60cm of snow in winter so the spring water which runs from the Kurikoma Mountains and the Akita Sugibayashi Forest in Omoriyama is perfect for making premium udon as the balance of minerals in this water enhances the taste of the noodles.

Preparation: Boil for 3 minutes and rinse in cold water. Eat Hot or cold with toppings of your choosing.

Japan-Best is first and foremost a story about Japanese craftsmen with the influence of contemporary design. We are inspired by the timeless beauty of traditional Japanese craftsmanship, and their ability to adapt to our modern lifestyle. The more brands we meet, the more passionate we become about the stories behind each product; the skills of the craftsmen, or the long tradition of an object left unchanged for generations yet somehow remaining contemporary.

Japan-Best is a collection of Japanese brands, which we have selected for the originality of their design, the quality of their production, the fact that their production is “Made in Japan”, and the long history that they maintain, quite often for several generations.

Our selection of Japanese food is also based on craftsmanship in agriculture. We choose brands based on how they are made and we love brands that continue to use traditional natural techniques to grow food and prepare it. Good packaging and design is always and added joy to find!
