OSAKA UDONHISTORY

During the Edo period, Osaka was a vibrant hub for merchants and traders.
It became known as "The Kitchen of Japan," as famous dishes were created and popularized here, one after another.
Osaka's udon has a history of more than 400 years.
During the construction of Osaka castle, the builders used an enormous sand pit in the city for raw materials.
This area in present-day Shinmachi quickly became lined with a bustling row of udon and soba sellers.
These formed the base of Osaka's enduring popular noodle culture.
Osaka's noodles are light yet hearty, deliciously slurpable,
and make a great traditional lunch full of local flavor.
