|Cookbook:Sanuki udon Sanuki udon|
Sanuki udon (讃岐うどん) is a type of udon noodle most popular in the Shikoku region, but is now easily found throughout the neighboring Kansai region and much of Japan. It is characterized by its square shape and flat edges. Many udon shops now specialize solely in sanuki udon, and are usually identified by the text "sanuki" in hiragana (さぬき) appearing in the name of the shop or on the sign.
Sanuki udon are named after the previous name of the Kagawa Prefecture, Sanuki Province.
