The origins of Hanumen noodles date back to the 1950s when a magnitude 6 earthquake rocked the Misumi region. Mr. Amajio, the discoverer of the unique treat, was said to have been boiling a large amount of somen noodles when the earthquake knocked an open bottle of strawberry jam into the pot.
When reconstruction efforts were underway, Mr. Amajio, not one to waste anything, served up the noodle mixture to hungry evacuees. The reception was positive and Hanuda Village's famous noodle specialty was born.
The perfect balance of soy sauce and jam creates a sweet aroma that draws not only villagers, but bugs as well. According to one story, the fragrant smell will bring a continuous stream of insects into the kitchens of anyone cooking the special recipe.
