    Kagawa Pref. Ayautagunayagawachou Hayukakami 602-2
    Yamagoe Udon is an udon noodle restaurant founded in 1941 in Ayagawa Town, Ayauta County, Kagawa Prefecture, famous as the home of kamatama udon. Even during the week people are often waiting to get a table at this sought after restaurant. Kamatama udon was conceived when a regular customer came into the restaurant with an egg and ate it after mixing it with some hot udon noodles straight from the pot. Many people come for this great tasting dish of udon noodles made with the famous local waters, egg and specially made stock and soy sauce mixture all brought together in perfect harmony. The kamatamayama which is the kamatama udon topped with yam, is also popular. They also have a wide variety of toppings including tempura.

    I went there by udon bus tour. It was around 10am in the morning but already lots of people were eating udon. Kamata udon was really taste. Fried mashed potato was also great.

The spacious restaurant also has seating at the counter making it easy for people by themselves to stop by for something to eat.

    Kagawa Pref. Takamatsushi Yashimanakamachi 91
    This udon restaurant is next to the “Shikoku Village” folk museum in Yashimanaka Town, Takamatsu City, Kagawa Prefecture. It operates out of an old home with a straw-thatched roof built at the end of the Edo period, giving the interior an authentic Japanese feel. The “kama-age udon” is a popular option for the gentle texture and springiness of the noodles. Other well-received options include the “tokudai udon” for two and the “kazoku (family) udon,” which comes in a large tub. The broth, with its secret dried sardine-base, and the freshly fried tempura make a great combination.

    Kagawa is udon nirvana, and if you have a chance to come to Waraya you are in one of the holy sites of this famous noodle. The food is really great, the atmosphere is terrific, and it is close to the...

    Located in Yogita Town, Zentsuji City, Kagawa Prefecture, Yamashita Udon is famous for being the birthplace of bukkake-udon (cold udon noodles with chilled dashi sauce poured over them). People can often be found queuing to get into this popular restaurant on the holidays.

    Kagawa Prefecture Nakadatsu-gun Kotohira Town 810-3
    Located on the approach avenue leading to Kotohira-gu Shrine, Konpira Udon is a long-established restaurant whose specialty is hand-made Sanuki Udon Noodles. What makes Sanuki Udon Noodles particularly enjoyable is the special way they are eaten, accompanied by specially-made soy sauce rather than dashi soup. A wide range of toppings and set meals are available. As a convenient place to enjoy the authentic taste of Sanuki Udon Noodles, Konpira Udon is very popular. The building in which the restaurant is located is over 100 years old and is a designated Cultural Property; diners can get a real sense of the past here.

    Delicious, and customer with english communication But nothing special from other udon stores (chiken fries are a little bit salty)

    Kagawa Pref. Takamatsushi Banchou 5-2-23
    Sakaeda is a handmade udon noodle restaurant located behind the Kagawa Prefectural Office in Takamatsu City, Kagawa Prefecture, popular with office workers and locals. There are five kinds of udon to choose from off the menu including kake udon (udon noodles in broth), kamaage udon (noodles straight from the pot) and udon with raw egg. The broth and toppings are all self service. The flavor of the dried young sardine coming through in the broth together with the firm, chewy textured noodles is perfect. They have dozens of tempura toppings to enjoy together with your noodles. Sakaeda is open from 5:30 in the morning to 3:00 in the afternoon (closes early if sold out of noodles for the day).

    The udon is average at best. Tempura items taste like they have been fried 3 days ago. Messy ordering and payment system. Will not be back.

    You’ll find this longstanding udon shop in Hanzan Town, Marugame City, Kagawa Prefecture. It became famous for its self-service system in which customers pick their own green onions from the field and slicing them themselves. Nowadays, sliced green onions are included in the toppings corner. The udon is known for its supple and springy texture and traditional taste, which has remained unchanged for three generations. There’s “kama-tama udon” (udon with raw egg) and “kake-udon” served in a light broth. The soup stock and toppings are self-service.

Japan’s smallest prefecture, Kagawa, may take up just a small corner of Shikoku, but it has grown increasingly popular with the recognition of Naoshima, its "art island" in the Seto Inland Sea between Shikoku and Honshu. Just a stone’s throw from the islands, mainland Kagawa’s prefectural capital, Takamatsu, holds history in its castle ruins and its pride and joy, Ritsurin Garden, is known as one of the country’s best gardens.
