Inaniwa Udon 200g x 3 Ryozeki Junmai Daiginjo "Setsugetsuka" 720ml Inaniwa udon is one of the three most famous udon noodles in Japan, and is characterized by its firmness and smooth texture. It is a specialty of Yuzawa City, Akita Prefecture, with a history dating back to 400 years ago. It is said that the feudal lord of the Inaniwa area (now Yuzawa City), which was a production center of high-quality wheat, had the villagers produce udon. In the mid-1700s, the udon was valued as a gift for the feudal lord. Even after the Meiji period (1868-1912), Inaniwa udon continued to be delivered to the Imperial Household Agency and is known as the most expensive udon in Japan. Shelf life: Up to 365 days (may vary slightly depending on shipping timing) Setsugetsuka is a Junmai Daiginjo proudly presented by Ryozeki Shuzo in Yuzawa City, Akita Prefecture.
