Yamato Udon School is located in Kagawa Prefecture, Japan, which is also known as “Udon Prefecture”. It is the most famous Udon producing area in Japan. Despite its small size, there are more than 700 udon restaurants in Kagawa prefecture. Visiting local Udon restaurants is one of the biggest tourist attractions. Fierce competition makes every restaurant strive to improve the quality of its products. Naturally, this makes Kagawa the best place in Japan to learn authentic Udon cuisine. Although originally introduced from China, now Udon noodles are as part of “WASHOKU” (Japanese food) as any other famous dish such as Sushi or Ramen. Udon cuisine has already achieved much popularity around the world with many famous Udon restaurants in different countries.
