Not a Shikoku-specific article this time around, but one that bears a mention. If you are a noodle aficionado, you may want to get down to Shikoku to experience udon after you have had the ramen of the Honshu region. Long before, when I lived in Ishikawa-ken in Hokkuriku, I never had udon. Then I came to Shikoku.
It changed my life.
