Do you know what implies the number "47" in Japan?
It means the total number of prefectures exist in Japan.
Hokkaido in the northernmost to Okinawa in the most southernmost,
including Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka in Japan there are total 47 prefectures.
How many of these do you know?! and have ever been to?
Here we introduce an event called "47 Noodle market."
Yes, as the number implies, it is the collection of "local noodle" brought from all across Japan. Sounds interesting? Yes for food lovers, we guess.
The event to be taken place in Hikarie, Shibuya, features variation of noodle available in Japan. Some are soba (buckwheat) noodle and other can be udon (wheat flour) or ramen. In addition, it also shows us items with which to enjoy these noodle from noodle soup cups to Japanese traditional hot pepper spice.
