Takamatsu 2015 : Ikegami Seimensho by Kotosan bus tour (池上製麺所)

After we had a break at the cafe in front of Kawaramachi station, we went to Takamatsu station and took a walk and then we went to the bus stop in front of Takamatsu station.
I don’t have driver’s license, and he seldom drives. So, we decided to take part in the udon tour that is managed by Kotosan bus.
Our half in a day tour is 800 yen (excluding fees of udon and Ritsurin garden)
This website is Japanese only. This tour is need to be applied in advance. If you are interested in more about this tour, comment me 😉

We could visit two udon shops and Ritsurin park within half in a day.

What I worried about most was, maybe you who visit my blog frequently and see my posts about trips might easily understand,,,
I usually get heavy car sickness, expecially in bus and taxi.

But only this bus carry me to some udon shops far from stations at lower price…

乗り物酔いが激しいのだけが心配ですけど、このバスに乗らないと駅遠くのうどん屋には行けないのです!Σ(゚Д゚)

At first, our tour bus carried us to Ikegami Seimensho that is great famous udon shop for “Rumi baachan”. Rumi baachan is elder lady who had started to this udon shop when she was younger. Her udon has been loved by great number of people. Her udon shop was closer to the station than now.
But they had to move to this rural area because the shop had became extremely popular shop.

After 20 minutes or so, we got to the shop.

Menus. Kamatama udon is the most popular udon of Ikegami Seimenjo.
It is not too much to say that kamatama udon became popular way of eating udon thanks to this shop.

Order counter is right. After we order and get our udon, we pick tempura, onigiri and juice as we like.
After that we pay for the foods on our tray. And then we go to eating area and eat.
Oh, photos of Rumi-baachan is above the shelf 🙂 She has already been retired from cook, but she sit down besides souvenir area.

I had wanted to eat Kamatama udon, but, well, as you expect, I was suffering from the carsick.
But fortunately I didn’t lose my appetite at all.
So, I ordered Small kake udon (かけうどん 小, 195 yen). Kake udon have refreshing taste. So that’s good for me that time.
The flying fish soup (called agodashi) was flavory and bitter just a little. And springy udon. It was delicious.
I ate it up with easily.

案の定乗り物酔いしてしまったので、釜たまうどんは私は食べられず。生玉子の匂いもきついという悲しい状態に。(生玉子大好きなのに)

By the way, Ikegami Seimenjo sell udon on the internet. They also sell at the shop.
Of course, I already got it by Rakuten many years ago.
But I think eating the udon at the shop is the best way to taste their udon if you have a chance to visit there.

      There’s an application form on the official website.

      http://www.kotosan.co.jp/sp/order

      But the website for the tour is in Japanese only.
      If there’re vacant seats, you can join the tour without reservation and I heard that there’re always many vacant seats, especially on weekdays
