A new Ozu dish was born with yomogi (mugwort) udon noodles, a dish enjoyed in Kami Ozu since long ago. Beautiful green noodles with mugwort from Ozu kneaded inside plays the main role, with seasonal vegetables to decorate the dish. The vegetables are all from Ozu also, and seasonal harvests such as whole taro, thick shiitake mushrooms, lotus roots and carrots are used. The soup has a light taste, so that the seasonal vegetables and mugwort can be enjoyed as its best. It is a simple yet rich dish where one can enjoy the flavors of Ozu.
