Created 400 years ago by Miemon living in Shiroishi as a result of his concern over his father's stomach illness. He created a noodle made without oil from flour and salt water. It became well-reputed when his father's stomach illness was alleviated after eating it. Thus, the easy-to-digest and nutrient-rich umen was born from one man's warm compassion (it's also said that the name "umen" was given by the lord of Shiroishi Castle, Kojuro Katakura). A short, slender noodle that can be easily digested and feels great going down the throat, it is eaten with relish by everyone from small children to the elderly.
