Kagawa is famous for UDON! The udon there is so chewy and it cost only about 350 yen! Normally i can only buy food from the convenient store with 350yen, so it was really awesome to be able to sit down in a nice food store and enjoy a bowl of delicious udon. The best udon i had was a from a store called 吾里丸 located at 1 Chome-3-12 Miyawakicho, Takamatsu, Kagawa Prefecture 760-0005. Their famous butter udon is so tasty! Love it!
I've been to Takamastsu a couple of times with my Kagawa wwoofing host, but in terms of sightseeing, i only spent an afternoon touring around. My wwoofer friend and I rented a bicycle from the underground bicycle rental station for just SGD$1.50. The best thing is that there are such stations everywhere in the city and you are allowed to return the bicycle to any other stations. This, plus the fact that there are bicycle tracks everywhere, makes cycling around Takamatsu really convenient and enjoyable.
Besides riding around, we also window shopped at the shopping street located right outside Kataharamachi Station, and went to the famous Ritsurin Park (Entrance fee SGD$5.50). The garden was indeed huge and beautiful! I think it will be even prettier in Autumn or Spring with all the Autumn leaves and cherry blossoms. Damn i want to go back there!
I wanted to go Mount Yashima too, i heard you'll find a very spentacular view from up there, but i didn't have enough time to do so. Well, i'm heading back to my Ayagawa wwwofing place soon; i'll definitely find a chance to get there and share with you guys more about it.
That's all i have for now. :)
