    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.

    This is a famous self-service udon noodle restaurant that has branches in Osaka, Tokyo and the Chugoku region, located in Kameoka Town, Takamatsu City, Kagawa Prefecture. The store is always bustling with locals and tourists, as well as famous people in show business who come to Takamatsu City for live shows and photo shoots. In addition to freshly boiled udon noodles, piping hot deep-fried tempura made after receiving an order is also popular. Many enthusiasts of the store visit the restaurant for fried “soft boiled egg tempura” and crispy “Chikuwa tube-shaped fish paste cake tempura.”

    While traveling takamatsu I discovered this lovely restaurant, it had an English explanation for everything making it extremely easy to order. Great tampura egg. Great udon Noodles. If you are in...

    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 noodle shop is located about 10 minutes on foot from JR Sakaide Station. It is only open for one hour from 11:30 to 12:30 when visitors will be able to try their delicious udon (it is possible to get served if queuing at 12:30). The udon noodles, made by skilled noodle makers using the finest flour and seawater salt from the Seto Inland Sea has won the Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Prize and the Kagawa Prefecture Governor Prize many times. Hot, warm, cold or kamatama udon (kama-age udon with egg) can be ordered as can the size but the broth and condiments, which you can find at the table, are all self service. Souvenirs are sold from 9:00 to 17 :00.

    人気店ですが回転が早いので駐車場も待たずに入れました。 ぬるいうどんを食べましたがさすがに噂通り美味しかったです。特に癖もないので誰の口にも合ううどんだと思います。

    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).

    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.

    We had no idea we were entering udon heaven when we decided to eat lunch at Waraya. We noticed the building that was attracting a lot of people who had come and parked and were not going to the...

    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)

    Hidden away in the mountains around Manno Town, Nakatado County, Kagawa Prefecture, Yamauchi is a famous udon restaurant frequented by up to 300 people a day on the weekends and holidays. The udon noodles, painstakingly made by the restaurant owner and cooked in a large pot over a wood fire, have a firm texture with a nice bite to them. Their broth, with flavors of dried young sardine coming through, and locally sourced tempura are also very good. Yamauchi’s hiya-atsu udon with piping hot broth on cold noodles is a popular choice.

    I ate Udon. That was very nice taste. Udon is different taste by soup and noodles. I like this restaurant’s Udon taste!!

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.

    This café is in Kitahama Alley, an old warehouse town converted into a retro commercial complex in Kitahama-cho, Takamatsu City in Kagawa Prefecture. When you open the door, you are greeted with a tasteful space that makes good use of its location with the islands dotted around the Seto Inland Sea, the boats sailing back and forth in front of your eyes, the rusted tin and the vintage interior design. It has an extensive café menu with carefully-selected tea and coffee served in collaboration with a home-roasted coffee shop in Yashima. The food menu, which includes pizza, curry and bagels is also popular.

    About 11 minutes on foot from JR Hashioka Station. This Sanuki-style udon shop has a bright, open interior, with table seating and relaxed tatami seating—great for a relaxed meal, even with the kids. The Ippuku taste—a meticulous expansion of historic “Sanuki udon” through in-house methods—has gained many fans from all around. The supple elasticity and firm cuts of thin noodle are doused in deep rich dashi (stock) in “bukkake udon” and “kake udon”, which are delicious and reasonably-priced.

    I had small size Udon with Chikuwa tempts for 390yen! It was very wonderful taste and enough to reason come back some time later:)

    You’ll find this popular udon shop near the Museo Marugame Hirai (Marugame Hirai Museum) in Doki Town, Marugame City, Kagawa Prefecture. The noodle recipe was passed down from parent to child, and everything is done by hand, from the kneading of the dough to the stretching, cutting, and boiling. The udon freshly lifted from the pot is a delicacy with a nice, soft surface and a very springy texture. In addition to the “kama-tama udon,” there’s also cold udon and tsukemen noodles similar to zaru-style noodles. There’s only counter seating available, and the soup stock and seasonings are all self-service. The restaurant closes once the noodle supply runs out.

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.
