Experience "omotenashi" hospitality through taste
Sanuki Udon NoodlesKagawa Prefecture is synonymous with "Sanuki udon." This udon, which are chewy noodles with body, can be prepared in many different ways.
The wide variety of ways of eating Sanuki udon is one of its appealing points: kake-udon uses a tasty broth made with dried sardine, kijoyu udon uses soy sauce to enhance the taste of the noodles, and the mild kamatama udon uses soy sauce and is topped off with an egg. More than 600 udon shops compete with each other in Kagawa, so visitors can always enjoy the ever-evolving taste of Sanuki udon to their hearts' content.
Chicken-on-the-boneMarugame City in western Kagawa is the birthplace of the dish "chicken-on-the-bone", which is a fragrantly roasted thigh of chickens cooked with the bone that has been seasoned with salt, pepper, and garlic. Sinking your teeth into the juicy, just-baked chicken with spicy seasonings will have you hooked from the first time you eat it. This is a new specialty of Kagawa that can be enjoyed anywhere in the entire prefecture.
