Fujiya Honten's Himokawa Udon

This video shows the famous Gunma specialty, "Himokawa Udon" at Fujiya Honten in Kiryu City, Gunma Prefecture.

As you can see in the video, the noodles are wide, chewy, smooth, and firm.
Fujiya Honten, introduced in the video, is one of the oldest shops in Gunma, and has been in business since 1887.

The udon noodles at Fujiya Honten are about 5 cm wide, but there are shops that make them more than 10 cm, and nowadays people outside the prefecture know about the noodles and love the wide, flat style that's similar to kishimen.
Be sure to give it a try!
