“Sanuki udon” is one of Kagawa Prefecture’s specialty dishes. The prefecture is also home to a vast quantity of udon restaurants, and since oftentimes you can get a bowl for just 200 yen, going around and eating at multiple udon restaurants is fairly popular. This time, I visited “Suzaki Foods Shop,” a popular restaurant located on the west side of Kagawa Prefecture, and it’s so well-known that it wouldn’t be an exaggeration to call it the mecca of sanuki udon!
On December 27th of 2018, the izakaya “Aomori Nebuta World Shinbashi Store” opened. The restaurant is themed after the famous “Aomori Nebuta Matsuri,” a festival held in Aomori Prefecture, and the interior decorations beautifully capture the moving atmosphere of the festival!

Nagoya, Aichi Prefecture is well known for its unique cuisine known as Nagoya meshi. My favourite dish is, hands down, their miso-nikomi udon (thick udon noodles stewed in miso broth)! I couldn’t wait to head to one of the area’s most recommended miso-nikomi udon shops: Yamamotoya Honten. They have a number of locations, but I decided to visit their Esca shop which is situated under Nagoya Station.
“Senba Shinsaibashisuji Shotengai” is a shopping district packed with people.
It’s also a gourmet battlefield where delicious restaurants duke it out.
Our focus this time is “Ajiman,” a restaurant that’s been adored for over 50 years!

Kagawa Prefecture is a region famous for having the best udon in Japan. Their specialty, “sanuki udon,” is slippery and smooth, and it has a unique firmness to it. In Japanese, this firmness is referred to as “koshi ga aru,” which means that they “have body” to them.
