【Unique Souvenir】Let’s have fun eating noodles at home!

Takara Tomy Arts Co., Ltd. has released a new weightless-type new Nagashi (flowing) somen “Bigstream Somen Slider Galaxy” with somen flowing upward from March 28, 2019.

What’s Nagashi Somen?

First of all, Somen is a kind of udon, thin wheat noodle.  Somen noodles are thin, so if you put boiled things out, they will harden and hard to eat so we will usually expose them to cold water and eat with dipping sauce. From such background, Nagashi somen was born that we can eat them with fun. Usually, Somen is summer food but we eat them all year round so you can purchase somen anywhere anytime! This item can also be used in udon and soba besides somen!

Zero gravity function

As for the toy series “Bigstream Somen Slider” for sinking somen, unique new products have been launched every year since 2013. The latest series “Bigstream Somen Slider Galaxy”, which is the ninth work in the series, has conventionally reversed the common sense of flowing somen that flows from top to bottom according to gravity, and has “Zero gravity function”, “hyper drive tube” which allow somen flows upward from the bottom.

Docking with the traditional Nagashi Somen series is also possible!

The following video demonstrates how to set the main unit and how to make some noodles actually flow. Furthermore, by docking “Bigstream Somen Slider Extra Neo”, which was released same time with “Bigstream Somen Slider Galaxy”, they are creating a semi-permanent organization of a huge “flow somen”.
