The largest festival in Shintoku! The Shintoku New Soba Festival is held on the last Sunday of September!
A record 25,000 people come to enjoy the new soba.
Soba shops and handmade soba organizations proudly displaying their new soba.
We recommend "eating comparison" of new soba , which you can enjoy only at the festival.
Each shop offers delicious new soba with a combination of toppings and dipping sauces that will make each shop's individuality stand out.
The "4-tate soba" (freshly-harvested "toritate", freshly-milled "hikitate", freshly-kneaded "uchitate", and freshly -boiled "yudetate") are exceptional! We hope you will find the soba you like.
