    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

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.
