    Day 8 Tokushima, how is the first udon he ever tastes?

    With "Udon" the first place that pops up in your mind is probably Kagawa, but Tokushima has its famous udon as well. The name is "Naruchuru" and its noodle is softer than that of Kagawa. "Naruchuru" seems to be named after the sound "churu-churu" of shipping the noodle. Nathan seems to like his very first "Udon" and drinks up the soup as well!
