"The syreach flies and somen flows. What is it?

↑The image of the event is Marie- san ( https://www.instagram.com/fujiimary/ I was drawn!


As the name says, it's an event to fly the scradies and shed somen,

To be honest, it is neither more nor less, but if you dare to explain it, it will be like the following.

(Excerpted from the event page)

July 7, the day of the event, is Tanabata, and it is also specified as the day of the dried shiy take. And shiy take used to be an offering to God, and it was customary for Japanese to taste somen with shishiedo on Tanabata.
On the day of the event, when the siban is dedicated to the shrine on the 1st level of the venue, the whitefly flies toward the heavens, and the heavenly man who received it will throw a sink somen that looks like heavenly hagoromo from the 3rd to the 1st. And we will taste somen at shiitake dashi "oh!dashi" sold by Shiitake Festival on 7/7.


"Why do you fly the syring?" 」

"Did you have to be a syring?" 」

I had many questions from various places related to the event before the event was held,

To be honest, we don't know why we fly the tsoever,

I don't think it needs to be a syring.


Like mountaineer George Mallory,

Like the Wright brothers who invented the plane,

"I just wanted to skip the syring. That's all I can say.


More than 300 people (number of participants) were complicit in the "take to the skies" act on the day, and more than 700 witnessed the act.

Thank you very much to everyone who participated in the event who did not understand the meaning despite the precious holiday!


Let's take a look at the day!

The venue was 100BANCH, an incubation facility in Shibuya where shiitake mushroom festival is located.

A huge sink somen device was constructed from the 3rd floor to the 1st floor.

While the participants purchased a ticket for shed somen and handed over the syreach,

Outside, loincloth men worked to pumps up their thystums through weighted push-ups. For some reason, you can see it by watching the following video.

Right! In addition to the participants flying the sloys from the shrine, the loincloth men must first switch on the device by generating physical power!

When you dedicate a sedivet to a shrine started by power generation, the syreach flies toward the heavens at a tremendous speed.

When the white-skinned fly and reach the heavenly people, heavenly hagoromo (sink somen) flows instead.

Somen is a dashi chef's yatsushiro sensei ( https://www.atrio-food.com/ I tasted it with a collaboration manzuyu of 10000000000000000000000000000000000000

In fact, this event, shiitake mushroom festival's new product dashi, oh! It was a dashi launch event.


At night, the venue was directed with projections inspired by the Milky Way. The video was produced by Zion-kun, a designer who is also in 100BANCH! ( https://www.instagram.com/shion1118/


"The syring flies, the somen flows. Thank you very much to everyone who participated in the event and everyone who cooperated with us!

The fact that the name "Shiitake Matsuri" contains the letter "Festival" is also due to the desire to hold a festival that will make everyone smile like this time.

Thank you very much for the shiitake mushroom festival!
