Sanuki - the old name for the Japanese region now know as Kagawa - is famous for its udon noodles. The thick wheat noodles are a local staple, traditionally made from wheat planted in paddy fields before the more valuable rice crop goes in. In 2014 I travelled to Shikoku to eat noodles, and photograph them.
