We had a wonderful time learning how to make soba noodles! Our 'angel' Sylvan and our instructor made the whole time a treat! We learned the most important parts about mixing and kneading and rolling out the dough as well as cutting. The tasting of our results afterwards was an eye opener and especially delightful with accompaniments of tempura. If you love Japanese noodles, you really need to experience this.

My wife and I loved the soba-making activity in Matsumoto with Sylvain from Japan-Experience. Sylvain, who speaks great Japanese, helped translate the soba master's instructions. It was a great challenge to knead the buckwheat dough to the right consistency, roll it out to the right thickness, and cut it into noodles with a giant blade designed for the purpose, so it was wonderful reward to be able to eat, right afterwards, the noodles we had just made. Sylvain took great photos & video for us, and insightfully answered all our accumulated questions about Japan as we slurped up our handiwork. A highlight of our trip to Japan!

Sylvain is very nice and friendly guide, speaking french, English and Japanese. Cause he living since some years in Japan, he really know the Japanese culture.Thank to him, my wife and I discover Matsumoto and area around. We visited a sake brewery next to Matsumoto, the monkey mountain next to Nagano, Suwa lake, temples and castle in the Matsumoto city. I warmly recommended Sylvain to let you discover and enjoy the Matsumoto region. Thank Sylvain.
