Shogun Noodles/天下統一の麺/三大大名的麵

I saw these noodles in a supermarket a little while back.  It's a Japanese brand, actually.  They have three kinds of noodles: Nobunaga Somen, Hideyoshi Udon, and Ieyasu Soba.  These are the three major warlords who unified Japan at the end of the 16th century.  The last of them, Ieyasu, set up a Shogunate government that would last for another 250 years.
This has nothing to do with Tainan, but I thought the idea was kind of cute.
