We came here twice because we love ramen and there are so many options to choose from. It's a little hard to find this place the first time since Kyoto Station is huge. Just look for Isetan Department store and they have an elevator that...More

We are massive fans of ramen, so this place was just fantastic. We ended up coming here almost everyday during the time we were in Kyoto just to try a different ramen. The only minus point is the long queue during lunch time and the...More

I tried two stalls with lesser crowd. Rather disappointed with the quality. Not sure if those stalls with the long queue will taste better. I would suggest spend your time and try other restaurants around Kyoto. But then again, I don't think Kyoto is famous...More

Shimogyo-ku is centered around the busy train hub,
Kyoto Station. A nexus for commerce, shopping, dining,
and hotels, the Shimogyo-ku area is infused with
tourists and local business travelers, making it a
competitive location for ever-new commercial
structures. The shops and cafes here are chic and
trendy, as a result, with many recognizable chains.
Commuters flood the Shimogyo-ku area twice a day, and
