Udon making

Learn to make thick udon noodles, the staple dish on Shikoku Island.

Every region in Japan has a speciality dish and Kagawa Prefecture is well know for its sanuki udon. Udon are thick wheat flour noodles usually served in a broth with various toppings and accompaniments and Sanuki is the old name for Kagawa. InsideJapan can arrange an udon making lesson in Kotohira, the prettiest town in Kagawa Prefecture. During the hour long class in an udon school at the foot of Konpira Shrine, you'll learn the special sanuki dough kneading technique. Teachers will then demonstrate how to slice the dough into noodles before you have the chance to cook and eat them.
