In a saucepan combine the water, dashi no moto, mirin, light soy sauce, and salt. Bring to the boil and allow all ingredients to simmer and mix on low heat to create the soup.
Add the matcha udon to the saucepan and allow to simmer for a couple of minutes to warm and absorb the flavour of the soup. Then add the kamaboko fish cake slices and simmer for another couple of minutes.
Place the noodles, fish cake slices, and soup into 4 bowls evenly. Top with the sliced green onion. Enjoy.
