For a restaurant, a good location is usually critical, but what can we say about a restaurant that retains its popularity even though it’s on the outskirts of town? I say, very impressive!

The udon shop “Otafuku” in Awagasaki is a good example. Even though it’s out of town, the lunchtime customers keep coming in until the place is packed. That’s only to be expected, I suppose, because the udon and tempura are extraordinarily delicious – big servings, too.
