Enjoy udon noodles and home cooking in atmospheric old, thatched houses

Waraya serves up its own original udon using a recipe unchanged since its founding in a thatched farmhouse from the late Edo period (1603-1867). The zaigo in zaigo udon is a local dialect word meaning “countryside” or “rural,” so you could call it “country udon.” Shoyu-mame (soy sauce beans), made from roasted dried broad beans soaked in a rich sauce, is also a local Kagawa specialty. This dish appeared to spread in Kagawa because it is major growing region for broad beans, called sora mame in Japanese, as well as a center for delicious shoyu. This dish carries the flavors of natural bounty and community bonds.
