Kagawa Prefecture is thinking of changing its name to Udon Prefecture because it has become so famous for its udon noodles. Well, maybe prefectural officials are joking, but they'd sure like to honor their famous udon.
As part of the campaign, actor Jun Kaname is promoting Udon Prefecture as the vice Udon prefectural governor who was born in Udon Prefecture.
The official Udon Prefecture homepage got over 170,000 hits in six days after it was launched, and it is still getting a lot of attention from media and some people who think the name change is going to happen.
