Japan is divided into eight major regions with a total of forty-seven prefectures, from the Okinawa islands in the southwest to Tokyo in the east and Hokkaido in the north, each unique in their customs, sights, and food cultures.
Aizu, Japan, in Fukushima Prefecture’s western side, is a wonderful region. Not only does it boast beautiful mountains, lakes and ponds, but it also has a unique samurai heritage, incredible temples and shrines and is known for its classical sake breweries.
Ever since I started working from home about a month ago, instant noodles have become my go-to for a quick bite. Usually, quick ramen would just be a weekend snack, but these days it has helped remove some of the stress on cooking during the pandemic.
Besides those classic dishes, particularly Chinese noodles are an inherent part of Japanese cuisine. As such, it comes to no surprise that the island nation has a vivid variety of pasta deliciousness to offer!
