Somenya – そうめんや

Perhaps it was only a matter of time…

Bandai released a new item on April 18th in the Cook Joy product line called Somenya (そうめんや).  Purchasing the product will enable you to eat nagashi somen (流しそうめん) right from the comfort of your own home!

The unit requires assembly (18 pieces in all) and can easily be taken apart for storage or transport (comes with it’s own cloth carrying bag).

Somenya is targeted for children older than 6 and comes with a somewhat hefty price tag of 8,400yen (or roughly US$84).

You can get more information about Somenya at the official site, or through the official press release (both are in Japanese).
