Yoshida Udon noodles are a highly popular local specialty of Fujiyoshida City. The region has low average temperature due to its high altitude, and has soil with a large lava content, making it unsuited to rice farming. For this reason, grains such as barley, wheat, foxtail millet and Japanese millet have been cultivated since olden days. It is said that women who engaged in weaving customarily ate udon noodles that the men made for lunch so they do not need to stop their work for long. The noodles were thick and chewy, to provide udon that are filling, and this became characteristic of Yoshida Udon.
There are many udon restaurants in the city, so why not find one to your liking ?
