The Longest Line To Eat Udon In Kagawa Prefecture: Yamagoe Udon

Kagawa is famous for Udon, one of the most popular noodles eaten in Japan. This is because Kamatama Udon was born in Kagawa, which are thick Udon noodles eaten with a little bit of sauce.

Yamagoe Udon is the most famous Udon Restaurant in Kagawa. Kamatama Udon is originated here!
There is no station around (40 minute walk from the closest station), so you’ll need to take a car.

Long Line In Middle Of Nowhere!

You may get lost on your way, but you’ll know you’re headed in the right direction when there is a long line of cars and people as you get closer to Yamagoe Udon...you won’t miss it!

You can see the line from a distance.

They have a large area to eat and you can send Udon noodles to your family and friends from there. The restaurant looks like a toll road rest stop, but always has a long line.
