What is known as Kagawa Prefecture today was know as Sanuki Province in the olden days. Kagawa Prefecture is famous nationwide for its udon.
Most people think that a bowl of udon is a bowl of udon is a bowl of udon. That is not the case. "Sanuki Udon," the udon sold in restaurants in Kagawa Prefecture, is vastly better than your typical bowl of udon. It's delicious.
As you pass through the last prefecture during your walk be sure to stop at restaurants a few times and enjoy a few bowls of Sanuki Udon.

... and it is really affordable!
In Kagawa I also had the great experience of not having to pay for my bowl of Udon. Some great fellow henro from Osaka had donated money to the restaurant to pay for the food for henro after him! I was delighted, so kind!
