Togakushi is located in the north from the center of Nagano City about an hour's bus ride away. The area lies at the foot of Mount Togakushi, near the boundary of Niigata and Nagano prefectures, and is famous for the production of soba, or buckwheat noodles. The area name "Togakushi," meaning "hiding behind the door," refers to the Japanese myth that Amaterasu Omikami, the sun goddess, was greatly angered about wrongdoing of her brother Susanoo-no-Mikoto, and in protest she shut herself inside the Heavenly Cave and sealed it shut with a giant rock.
