Arima-san seems to know all the interesting places to see in Kyushu. For lunch we went to a very scenic spot, which happened to have an obscure canyon which we entered via elevator. Here we entered a restaurant that served somen noodles in a very unique fashion. Supposedly it was invented by the mayor of the nearby town and consisted of water being pumped in circular troughs at the table into which we threw the batch of somen noodles and then allowed the swirling motion to drive them against our ohashi (chop sticks). Quite delicious as well teamed up with salty broiled rainbow trout.
