    Aichi Pref. Okazakishi Nakaokazakichou 6-9
    A long-established udon restaurant founded in the middle of the Meiji period and said to be the originator of the Okazaki specialty kama-age udon (udon noodles straight from the pot). It was said that kama-age udon came about because the restaurant owner at the time picked up boiled udon directly from the pot and ate it warm. The udon noodles are especially chewy in texture and the broth is a closely guarded secret! Their miso-nikomi udon made with the local traditional Hatcho miso is popular with celebrities and many people alike. The nearest stations are Okazakikoen-mae Station and Naka-Okazaki Station.

    Aichi Pref. Nagoyashi Naka-ku Sakae 3-12-19
    This is a well-known udon shop that was established in 1925, and is famous for miso nikomi udon, a dish among Nagoya’s home cooking. Using a dashi soup stock carefully prepared with bonito, shiitake mushroom, and kombu (kelp) combined with secret proportions of soy sauce, mirin, Haccho miso, and light-brown miso, the dish has a mellow taste that is very appealing. The chewy raw udon noodles made with 100% Japanese-grown wheat cooked in a Shigaraki pot is a characteristic of this dish. The menu is listed on the wall and the restaurant interior has a nostalgic ambience.

The shop is approximately six minutes on foot from JR Toyokawa Station.

    Yamamotoya Honten specializes in the Nagoya specialty, miso-nikomi udon. This long established restaurant continues to serve these udon noodles in a way unchanged since it was first founded. The noodles, painstakingly kneaded by skilled chefs, have a distinctive chewy texture. The flavor's deciding factor is the original miso fermented for over three years with soup stock derived from carefully selected bonito. And after gently simmering the noodles in a pot, the rich flavor of the nikomi udon is finally complete. The restaurant is fresh and clean, and convenient, even for women by themselves. The nearest station is Fushimi Station.

    ちょっと私には合わなかったかな?汁が辛い、うどんが腰強すぎで噛みごたえありすぎでした。一緒に行った家族は大絶賛でした。きっと美味しいと思います。 I didn’t find it tasty. Noodles were hard and soup was salty. Anyway, my family likes it very much!!!

    Aichi Pref. Gamagorishi Takeshimachou 7-12
    This long established udon restaurant located near the tourist spot of Takeshima Island in Gamagori City, Aichi Prefecture, was founded in 1903. The udon noodles are made with locally sourced flour and kneaded by hand for two days to produce a characteristically chewy texture and great tasting flavor. But what makes the flavor really stand out is the fragrant broth lavishly made with only frigate mackerel bonito. In addition to their regular favorites such as ‘benten’ topped with two extra large tempura king prawns, and ‘ryujin udon’ topped with fried stuff in starchy egg sauce, their Takeshima udon with lots of clams and available only from March through to June, is also very popular.

Aichi Areas

around-area-map

Aichi is a prefecture of great natural beauty with Nagoya city at its heart, a busy hub home to a labyrinth of underground shops and the 17th-century Nagoya Castle. Castles are easy to find in this history-rich prefecture, but the highlight for history buffs has to be the Museum Meiji-mura, where preserved buildings from the turn of the 20th century are displayed in all their grandeur in an outdoor museum.
