This is not a tourist place, but a small restaurant that serves udon and tempura at reasonable prices for mostly people from the community. The atmosphere is not polished; you are handed a bowl of noodles and shown where to heat them, add broth, and put on toppings. The staff was friendly and brought a little bowl and fork for our son without being prompted, so were obviously paying attention despite being busy. It was refreshing to find another traditional udon shop which has not become completely slick catering to busloads of tourists.

I'll first state that it's been 6 mo. since I visited, but this place left a deep impression on me.

I was staying in Takamatsu to see Naoshima + the art islands, so I decided to go for udon since (1) Kanagawa prefecture is known for udon (2) it's hard to find it in Tokyo (I can't speak for other areas of Jpn).

This is a hard-core local joint; there's no holes in the wall or cockroaches, but there's only bar seating facing the wall, there's an open kitchen where you can see the noodles being made, and the food is simple + cheap.

You pick your size noodles, toppings, pay (there isn't even a register!), seat + serve + clean up after yourself. When I went in, there were actually construction workers eating there & a lone girlie like me that found good reviews and decided to visit (and of course take lots of photos).

If you want an egg, then you need to order it, but otherwise you reheat your own noodles, grab what you want (scallions and tempura bits are free of charge + kept separate), & pay. After eating, you dump out your food in the wastebasket in the middle of the room (not as disgusting as it sounds), put your bowl away, and leave w/ a happy tummy.
