    Komame Shokudo’s shop was created by renovating a building that used to be for rice mill during early Showa period. It continues to preserve the food culture of Shodoshima Island. The wonderful local flavor is all handmade, so you can enjoy it fresh from the oven. From October to May, bento boxes can be purchased by making reservation.

    We viisited the place for the rice terrace, while we have to wait for almost an hour for the next city bus to head to the central hospital n change another bus to the olive park direction. The best...

    Goyashiki is a typical example of a wealthy farmhouse in this region. Notable for both its age and architecture, it's a National Registered Tangible Cultural Property. Valuable features include the design of the main building and detached rooms, the four-legged front gate, the yakuimon garden gate, and the six storehouses on the grounds. Today Goyashiki is a restaurant serving elegant kaiseki course cuisine and local Sanuki fare including hand-made Sanuki udon noodles.

    The experience is definitely five star, though the food does not live up to the experience. Set on the grounds of an old manor house with kimono clad attendants, you feel transported back in time. To...

    This veteran okonomiyaki pancake shop was founded in 1952. People say it's the best spot for okonomiyaki in Takamatsu. Grilled with lots of beef lard for a crispy texture reminiscent of fried food, they're perfect with just some special okonomiyaki sauce rather than the usual range of toppings like nori seaweed, dried bonito shavings, and mayonnaise.

    we went 2 times, once we got okonomiaki with shrimps, this evening soba with scallops:very well cooked , in a friendly shop. they dont serve beer, thats the only thing missing! very cheap...

    About a five minute walk from the bus stop at Akasaka, Shodoshima Island in Kagawa Prefecture. This restaurant is one where you can enjoy richly diverse and creative dishes. The interior is like a cottage, and has table seating where you can look out over the Uchinomi Bay. Open for lunch, and for dinner by reservation. Standard lunch options include the three-portion bento box, with the three-level Nonoka meal. A kids’ menu is also available. There are course meals in the evening.

    We had dinner at Nonoka during our stay in Shodoshima. It was a superb dining experience. We thoroughly enjoyed the delightful ambience in the chalet with extensive wooden decor, as well as all...

    This restaurant has an inviting atmosphere and is decorated with fishing gear like catch boxes, trawling nets, and glass fishing floats. The menu is packed with items featuring fine Shikoku ingredients like fresh from the market local seafood, seasonal organic vegetables delivered daily from contract farms, and “Komebuta” Sanuki brand pork. Spirits include local Kotohira brewed “Gaijin” and other sake from around Shikoku, premium Japanese shochu liquor, and select plum infused sake from around Japan.

    総勢40人くらいだったでしょうか・・・。狭すぎず、広すぎずのちょうどいい空間でした。子供が半分でしたが、快く接待していただきました。また、次回もお願いしようと思ってます。

    This tonkatsu pork cutlet shop is an old Takamatsu City favorite. Their irresistible cutlets with juicy pork and a crispy coating are made with close attention to detail. Everything on their menu is highly popular, including their light lunch cutlets and their pork loin tonkatsu featuring Olive Yumebuta pork. The several varieties of salt they have available in test tubes all go great with their tonkatsu.

    I felt myself go back to 60-70s when I get into this restaurant. Theres a very long bar table and you can have a full view of the kitchen. There are plenty of local pork options on the menu and I...

    駅などからは離れているので車で行くしかないですが、市場の近くなので相変わらず価格も市場レベル。エビフライや海鮮丼が安く食べられます。ブリ以外のお刺身は、ちょっとまあ普通かな?とも思いましたが、やはりここではブリでしょう。海老フライには、お好みでタルタルソースかけられます。土曜の13時30分頃に行きましたが、空いていました。とはいえ14時には閉店なので、ご注意。この時間帯だと、単品メニューはあまりな...

    This restaurant is famous for its chicken served on the bone and topped with daikon radish sprouts. The restaurant's large menu includes meat from adult birds, meat from young birds, grilled chicken skin, and chicken tsukune meatloaf. The restaurant is decorated simply and has a friendly atmosphere. The chicken on the bone is cooked with plenty of chicken fat and spicy seasonings are kept to a minimum, meaning even children can enjoy the restaurant's delicious chicken.

    "A Japanese diner style restaurant where customers can enjoy dishes made with olives, an abundance of which are grown on Shodoshima Island where the restaurant is located. The restaurant makes use of fresh, seasonal, vibrant vegetables provided by local Shodoshima Island farms HOMEMAKERS and Muro Farm and grown without the use of agricultural chemicals or chemical fertilizers. Particularly recommended is the island vegetable and ""three variety olive roast beef set meal"", which gives you the chance to taste three different, rare cuts of ""olive beef,"" a premium variety of Japanese black beef fed on pressed olives."

    This is a good place to stop while sightseeing at Shikoku's Yashima or Seto Inland Sea National Park. It has a restaurant and a souvenir shop with a large selection of Sanuki specialties, noted goods, folk crafts, and special merchandise. Adjacent to the Shishi-no-reigan Lookout, it offers a superb view of the Seto area you can take in while you dine. It's been selected as one of Japan’s 100 best sunset destinations, and the night view is great too.

    景色が抜群です。ご飯もおいしいです。イベントも色々やってます。高松にきたらぜひ行ってほしいお店の一つ。 確か今年数ヶ月改装に入るとか。訪問予定のある方はご注意ください。営業時間など変わってるはずです。FB等事前の確認をお勧めします。

    Roughly eight minutes on foot from Kawaramachi Station, this restaurant features local Sanuki cuisine. The traditional local cuisine is recreated by Mr. Ryushi Matsuoka using only the day’s freshest ingredients from Sanuki’s abundant harvest. The first floor has counter seating and seating around a stove, while the second floor has tables for relaxing under andon lamp lighting, and Japanese-style rooms. You can order course meals with local sake, or order a la carte to get the famous “kankan zushi”, or “kawazakana no hirarani” —slowly simmered over three days.

    Kagawa Shozu-gun Tonoshocho Fuchizaki Ko 2153-2
    This is an original creative cuisine restaurant, founded with the owner's desire for his customers to 'enjoy the seasonally fresh food without the limited concepts of western or Japanese styles'. The chef serves up heart-warming dishes made from the fresh seafood caught fresh every morning, and from the fruit of the land. This restaurant, about 10 minutes from the Tonosho Port, with very high ceilings, provides a spacious and expansive atmosphere. The dinner menu, ingeniously created from the local seafood, has even been written up in tourism guidebooks. The cuisine is known for its distinctively exotic dishes made with such rare items such as eggs of sea cucumber, salted sea cucumber entrails or ovaries, and dried karasumi flavored octopus. The lunch hour menu is popular for the chef's special, which always is a surprise using the island's best produce.

    良いうわさを聞き、初めての訪問です。 車と留めるところが無いので、そこらへんに駐車となりましたので、少し残念。 お店は2階に上がりますので、お年寄りの方は階段を上がらなければなりませんので、ご注意を。 お店の雰囲気は、テープルとカウンターと個室があるようです。 扉を開けると、誰もいないが、急がしそうにして、私たちは置き去り。 個室に先客がいるようですが、私たちも始めてのお客なのに…。 とりあえず...

    This Japanese pub gets great reviews for items made with local Kagawa ingredients. Guests love their Sanuki Sanchiku: Sanuki beef, Sanuki Yumebuta pork, and Sanuki Sanchiku Cochin chicken. Everything on the menu is fantastic, including their multi-course meals, combination platters, and traditional Kagawa fare. They close as soon as their main dishes run out, so it's best to go early.

    讃岐の美味しいお料理を味わうなら、絶対こちら! こだわりの食材と、素晴らしい腕前の大将の、素晴らしい夜が約束されています。 お酒も讃岐の地酒が揃っていて、マリアーシュもバッチリ楽しめます。 骨付鳥もこちらで戴くと一味違う♪

    Operating as a beach clubhouse on the first floor and as a guesthouse on the second floor, this is one of only a few lodging facilities on the island of Megijima which is open year round. The establishment's dinners consist of hearty and visually appealing fresh seafood delights that surprise with both their extravagance and flavor. The clubhouse on the first floor serves shaved ice, curry, and other snacks and light meals.

    ゴールデンウィークに瀬戸内芸術祭で女木島を訪れた際に、こちらでランチを頂きました。20食限定のサワラの煮つけと刺身のセットがお値段の割にとても充実していました。その季節で美味しいものを提供してくれるような感じでした。カレーライスは家庭的なお味でした。

    You can try Takamatsu’s famous bone-in chicken at this restaurant, a 10-minute walk from Takamatsu-chikko Station with table and counter seating available, you can just drop in by yourself or with others. They use fresh chicken readied that morning. Try comparing the soft, juicy young chicken with mature chicken which gets more flavorful as you chew. The “bone-in chicken” is a fan favorite, with its spicy punch that takes about 20 minutes of slow grilling upon order. There are also various à la carte dishes like potato salad.

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.
