    Kagawa Pref. Takamatsushi Nariaichou 8
    "This restaurant and souvenir shop offers a workshop that lets you try making Sanuki udon noodles by hand. With good access from Ritsurin Garden which is designated as a Special Place of Scenic Beauty, Yashima Island, and the temples of the Shikoku 88 Temple Pilgrimage, you'll definitely want to stop by. Besides Sanuki udon, there are a lot of popular products such as the ""Nakano Udon School Set"" where you make the noodles by hand. They stock a lot of other special products from Shikoku too."

    Udon making is interesting but they put a wonderful twist on it to make it fun and exciting. Highly recommended!

There is also a horse-riding experience on the farm."
