Take the chance to enjoy the traditional summer activity of Nagashi Somen along with other great experiences! Nagashi-somen is the challenge of trying to catch noodles that are shooting down a split bamboo pipe with cold running water. It is perfect as a party entertainment in summer! After catching your lunch and perfecting your skills you can try your hand at the tea ceremony and calligraphy opportunities being held, as well as cosplay photography.
All of the activities are free although there is a limited quantity so it will be available on a first come, first serve basis.
