[JAPAN] The Unique Snow-Shaped Pasta in Yamagata, Tohoku Region

Yamagata, which is situated in the westernmost part of the Tohoku region, is blessed with many quality fruits such as cherries and pears, Japanese Sake, and the Yonezawa-gyu beef. Travelers can easily reach Yamagata about 60 minutes by plane from Haneda to Yamagata Airport, and it takes around 30 minutes from the airport to Yamagata Station by Bus. I was doing some research on the internet lately and found that Yamagata is filled with beautiful natural landscape. They have more than 100 hot springs, and lately people have visited Yamagata to see the abundant nature that changes from season to season. I want to be there one day!

Even for a unique snowflake pasta, all of the ingredients are produced in Yamagata. Their farmer experts guarantee safe cultivation methods that do not include the use of additives or chemicals. The secret to recreate this particular form of snowflake that gives the name to the snowflake pasta is a single design, created thanks to the cooperation with the Tohoku University of Art and Design of Yamagata.
