Netflix series 'Gourmet Stays' came to Niseko and stopped by our own Raku Ichi Soba to experience Tatsuru Rai genius in action & they were not disappointed!
Watch here the sheer joy & love of Megan, Jo & Luis whilst eating at Raku Ichi and the standing ovation they gave Tatsuru Rai at the end!!
"He starts with 100 per cent local buckwheat- a grain stubborn enough that most soba masters cut their dough with wheat flour to make it easier to work with. Once the water is added and the dough shaped into a smooth, seamless ball, he works it with a wooden dowel, using his forearms and his palms to make the mass thinner and thinner. With each pass of the dowel, he pats the dough with his right hand, a quick, seamless motion that acts as a metronome for the elaborate rolling process. The thud of the dowel, the slap of the hand, the rustle of the buckwheat against the board: it starts soft, grows louder and faster, the building of a great jazz performance."
They were also expertly hosted by Seasons Niseko, the world-famous 5-bedroom luxury ski-in chalet featuring its own Michelin starred chef, sweeping mountain views, stunning entertainment spaces, a tranquil indoor/outdoor Japanese spa bath, and world-class art and interior design.
