■Day2 Udon Breakfeast Tour & Activity on the Seto Inland Sea
In Udon Country, rise and shine with - you guessed it - Udon! The best Udon is where the locals eat, and in Kagawa, they aren't printed in the guidebooks.

The Secret of Japanese Fermented Foods
Kagawa-area has its own wheat food culture, like Sanuki Udon, due to its climate conditions. At the same time, it has the rich rice and fermented food culture. Let's visit the village, where malted rice has been made for more than 500 years, a shrine which deifies a god of malted rice (and is most likely the only shrine in Japan), a rice vinegar factory, where the vinegar is brewed in a more than 100-year-old wooden tun, and so on. You will enjoy the profoundness of the culture, history and special lunch with various fermented foods!
