Yamadaya: Sanuki Udon Restaurant

Enjoy Japanese noodles and traditional garden

By Naoko Takeuchi    - 1 min read

Sanuki Udon is a Japanese noodle dish eaten in Kagawa prefecture. It is named after Sanuki province, the previous name of Kagawa prefecture. In recent years, self-serve style Udon restaurants are popular, but Yamadaya provides heart-felt service.

In Yamadaya, we can enjoy not only Sanuki Udon but also a beautiful Japanese style garden. In fact, the building and its garden are designated as a nationally important cultural property. The face of the garden changes in rhythm with the seasons: cherry blossoms in spring, and brightly colored leaves in autumn. After eating their delicious udon, take a short walk in the garden and feel the wonders of the current season.

I was born in Oita prefecture, Kyushu, and grew up in Tokushima prefecture, Shikoku. My sister gave me my first camera and I have been taking pictures since then. Photographs have the power to tell stories, remind us of precious experiences, and motivate people to act. That’s why I love photography. Now, I’m living in Tokushima prefecture and would like to introduce the wonderful culture of Tokushima through all of my photographs.
