Somen?

In the photos for the Takachiho-cho gorge, there is a restaurant where the somen noodles float down long bamboo pipes. What is the name/address of this restaurant? Do they have a web site? It looks interesting.

Apparently Takachiho is where the floating somen (Nagashi-somen; 流しそうめん) was born.

Yobeekool beat me to it.

Just want to mention that nagashi somen is usually not offered during winter.
