Hokkaido 2017: Day 5 そばを自分で作った!

Learnt how to make soba from Agishiさん! あぎしさんにそばの作り方を習った!

The soba we made! 自分で作ったそば!ちょっと硬かった…(笑)

On the 2nd last day of the trip, Mum and Megumiさん arranged for a soba-making session at 喜香庵 (I'm so sorry, this is the limit of my N4 Japanese. I have no idea how to pronounce this ٩(͡๏̯͡๏)۶, but click on the link above or you can always make arrangements with Hokkaido Treasure Island Travel Inc. (。•́‿•̀。)). Agishiさん first showed us how he made soba and then, the whole family took turns making our own soba together, under his patient guidance! It was a really good arm workout. Haha. Thereafter, Agishiさん and his wife (I think) cooked our (hard and uneven) soba for us, fed us his own (al dente) soba and we washed them all down with soba tea. We also ordered soba ice-cream which was a pure bowl of happiness! Someone needs to bring this to Singapore, stat. (*꒦ິ꒳꒦ີ)

Aunt Jam's Workshop ジャムおばさんのジャム工房

Yanase Takashi's Anpanman Shop やなせ たかしの店(ふらの店)

Furano Jam Garden

Next stop was Furano Jam Garden, where we tried jam flavours we never knew existed and visited Anpanman. There are many gifts and souvenirs here that you can buy back for loved ones and if you want a hands-on experience, there's a jam-making class too. Just remember to make a reservation before 5.30pm the day before (Tel.: 0167-29-2233)!

Ninguru Terrace ニングルテラス

In fairytale land.

Ninguru Terrace's cookie. ٩(◕‿◕。)۶

Ninguru Terrace

Ninguru Terrace was just a stone's throw away from our hotel in Furano so we dropped by before dinner. This fairytale-like place is a collection of cottages selling handmade art and craft. There were intricately-carved wooden ornaments, candles with faces on them, leather crafts... And their very own cafe which serves really good baked milk and cookies!
