Sanuki udon is probably one of the most (if not the most) popular udon or wheat noodle in Japan. Hailing from Kagawa, the modern name of Sanuki , Sanuki udon is most well-known for its very firm and elastic, chewy texture or what the locals describe as “Koshi ga aru”.

Serenity of Ritsurin Garden

Ritsurin Garden, designated as one of Japan’s National Scenic Beauty, is a Japanese garden located in Kagawa Prefecture of Shikoku Island. It took 100 years for construction that started as early as 1625 by the feudal lord of Takamatsu at the time, Ikoma Takotoshi.
