Ippon udon

1. Ippon udon is a specialty dish available at Tawaraya located in Kyoto’s Kitano Tenmangu shrine. The original dish was literally one udon noodle, 60 cm long and as thick as an adult’s thumb, served in a bowl of soup.

2. However, following criticism that it was not easy to eat and out of concern to avoid choking accidents, the noodle has been redesigned. It is now a bit thinner, only 45 cm long, and one bowl contains two noodles.

3. This unique udon is served without any ingredients other than shaved ginger and soup. Diners who enjoy simplicity can savor pure udon taste, bite by bite.

4. Even in Kyoto, there is only one place offering ippon udon and very few bowls are served each day. Customers from all around Japan often line up in front of Tawaraya immediately after the eatery opens.

5. Some say that the limited availability of ippon udon at this single shop is due to the fact that it takes about one hour to boil just one bowl of udon.
