Live and Breathe Udon Noodles in Kagawa


Learn all there is to know about making Sanuki udon at Udon House


Take your noodle knowledge to the next level in Kagawa Prefecture, located in northeast Shikoku Island and proud of its distinctive cuisine, Sanuki udon. Kagawa is often dubbed the udon prefecture, and for good reason: it boasts over 600 udon restaurants within its borders, and it is said that locals consume seven times more udon noodles than the average Japanese person. Sanuki, by the way, refers to the former name of Kagawa. If all that has you intrigued, a night at Udon House is in order to truly appreciate this beloved Japanese dish.

At Udon House, a lodging in Mitoyo City, visitors can get a hands-on lesson in the art of making udon. Seize an opening in their overnight stay program and you can dedicate your mind, body, and soul to a full day of noodle-making master classes under the expert guidance of an udon navigator.

From the basics of kneading to boiling techniques, absorb every ounce of knowledge to become an udon master yourself. Learn about the connection with local agriculture as you tour local farms and try your own hand at harvesting veggies for a side dish. Top it off in the morning by venturing off on an udon breakfast tour to sample the local popular udon restaurants and surrender your stomach to a plethora of flavorful noodle bowls.

By the time you’re ready to return home, it’s safe to say that you will know udon like never before.
