Sanuki Tengu Soba dried noodle
Sanuki is the old name of the Kagawa prefecture, which is the smallest among Japan's 47 prefectures. Udon is a traditional Japanese noodle made of wheat flour, salt, and water. Udon is a simple food, but maybe that's why people never get bored of eating them. Udon is extremely popular here in Japan, and there are many different types of Udon all over Japan. Our Sanuki Udon is generally accepted to be the most popular Udon among them all.
This is our buck wheat Soba noodle, consisting of 70% wheat flour and 30% buck wheat flour. The texture of Tengu Soba is so smooth and pleasant that you cannot stop eating.
A Brief History of Sanuki Udon
Today, almost every Japanese knows that Sanuki, or Kagawa prefecture is well known for its Udon noodles. The reason why Sanuki became so well known for its Udon noodles was that Sanuki possessed everything necessary to produce the finest Udon. Sanuki's mild climate and low rainfall were ideal to produce fine quality wheat needed for Udon. Ever since Sanuki was early on described in the "Wakan-Sansai-Zue", or "Illustrated Sino-Japanese Encyclopedia", published in 1712 (the middle Edo period), we know that Sanuki has been providing fine quality wheat at least since then.
Mild climate and low rainfall also provided the ideal environment for producing salt by solar evaporation. Moreover, there was a nice fishing ground of small sardines, which were necessary to make the nice broth of Udon soup. Thus, nature provided Sanuki all the essentials for the finest Udon, and that is why we have such nice Udon characterized by its firm chewy texture and fine wheat fragrance.
