    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.

    釜揚げうどんの概念がかわる位美味しい。 高速インター降りてから比較的に近いところにあるお店。何度か伺いましたが、いつも行列で、子供が小さいため断念。 今回は平日休みで、朝早くに出動。 流石に空いていました。 麺とダシでこんなに釜揚げうどんが美味しくなるのかとびっくり! おかわりで再度行列に並びました。 子供も4歳ですが、ペロリと一人前食べました。

    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!!

    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...

    手打ち感満載でしっかりしたコシあるうどんが楽しめます。出汁2種類選択できますが、濃口は少し甘さが際立つので薄口の方がサッパリして美味しいですね。 讃岐食ってる感じはたっぷりで、次回来た時も寄りたい一件ですね。

    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.

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.
