    Kagawa Pref. Kagawagunnaoshimachou Honmura Middle back 1167
    Located in the Honmura district of Naoshima Town, Cafe Salon Nakaoku is a secluded, home-like café in a refurbished traditional farmhouse. The café owner is a native-born Naoshima islander. The café is renowned for its coffee, particularly its original-blend coffees with a “fruity” flavor that are the house specialty, but there is also a wide range of alcoholic beverages available. Cafe Salon Nakoku is located about three minutes’ walk from Minamidera with its Art House Project, in which a vacant house has been repurposed as an art museum. The café is a great place to unwind in a relaxing atmosphere.

    I was attracted by the many high ratings, and it was good but not that special. We walked from Miyanoura port, a little under 2km, an easy walk. The setting is very attractive, an old house set up...

    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)

    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.

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.

    Kagawa Pref. Takamatsushi Kagawachoukawanaihara 1575-1
    This udon noodle restaurant in Kagawa-cho, Takamatsu City in Kagawa Prefecture is famous and has been featured on popular TV programs. It is known as a restaurant that always has a queue outside on weekday lunchtimes, not to mention weekends and holidays. The udon noodles are made very early every morning from a special flour which is a blend of a several different types and salt water and their characteristics are the smooth surface and strong firmness. Each freshly-cooked noodle has a prominent edge which gives a firm, al dente texture. The most popular dish is the Kakiage Oroshi Udon topped with a giant mixed vegetable tempura.

    マスコミに取り上げられている有名店のようです。 広い店内と駐車場にたくさんの客が押し寄せていました。 私的な感想ですが、ここはうどんを食べに行くというよりも、 「天ぷら」を食べに行く店のようです。 大きく厚みのある「かき揚げ」は食べ辛く、うどんとマッチしていないと 思いました。 うどんもただ硬いだけで、半分残しました。 とても残念でした。

    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.

    This famous hand-made udon noodle restaurant located in Utazu-cho, Ayauta County in Kagawa Prefecture has been featured in many TV programs and travel magazines. It has many fans who come from in and outside the prefecture and it is known for having long queues. Based on the belief that udon must be made by treading with the feet over and over, the noodles, of which the restaurant is proud and created with just the right amount of treading, are superb with their gloss, flexibility and strong firmness. The flagship dish is Hiyaten Oroshi, a generously-portioned chilled udon bowl topped with two giant tempura prawns. It also sells udon to take home with you.

    If you want to fancy and expensive for tourist people that would be works well. This is good enough clean restaurant as taste okay with expensive!

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.
