The Origin

After Shimabara Taihen,

( Mt. Mayuyama falls down behind Shimabara city in 1792,

The Ariake Sea was hit by a tsunami and caused serious damage to the entire coast)

The Shimabara peninsula suffered a food crisis

Sweet potato has become a staple food.


At that time,

A man named Rokubei, a farmer in Fukae Village

Put sweet potato into powder and put yam,

Boiled in hot water and made udon-like

It is said that what made it is the beginning of Rokubei.


The soup is made with homemade soy sauce,

It is said that it was served with only the flavour of green onion.


It is a simple food,

A regional cuisine that invites nostalgia.
