We’ve eaten here several times now throughout the year. Dependably great tasting ramen & gyoza at this local favorite restaurant. Limited seating, not good for large groups. Only 2 tables for seating 4, otherwise, there are seats along the counter. Efficient, pleasant wait staff &...service.More

This is a small restaurant and so has some strict rules on time spent and what they can do during busy hours. But WORTH every bit of it as the food is amazing. Each bite is flavourful and each item on the small menu holds...its own. Must visit while you are in HakubaMore

If you're in Hakuba, it's worth a trip down to Tottsuan for a bowl of Ramen. Certainly 5 stars for me. We tried the gyoza and chicken karaage too. It's very good.

Went here in mid-April -- not long of a wait during this time of season. They have an English menu which is basically the same as the Japanese menu. Evaluation of Ramen (I ordered Miso, bf ordered spicy miso): Broth: Very rich and flavorful, I...finished the whole thing Soft-boiled egg: Marinated very well. My egg was sliiightly more than soft-boiled, but my bf's egg was cooked perfectly Chashu: Not too fatty, and very flavorful Noodles: Chewy, good bite to them Gyoza: 6 pcs of pretty small, but I found them the perfect size since we were eating a big 'ol bowl of ramen anyway. Not too overfried, which I actually like, and meat was juicy and flavorful.More

People say 'best... in....' on here all the time. But, I've actually had ALL the ramen in Hakuba. And this is head and shoulders above everyone else. Perfectly cooked egg with runny yolk, well-developed broth, flavourful char siu with a good char, perfectly paired noodles...for the type of soup. Good service. Great price.More

Ramen was great but experience was totally ruined by staff behaviour. It was snowing and difficult to find a taxi, finally found one which said 20-30 mins. We had been calling a taxi even before finishing the meal , which included drinks and sake and...side dishes etc besides mains for everyone, so a fairly full meal and more. The staff however felt it necessary to ask a family with kids to leave and wait outside even though it was snowing, and there were no waiting guests outside. Very poor form and even though it’s a basic ramen place one expects some simple humanity.More

Tottsuan is hands down the best ramen place in Hakuba. My favorite is the shio (salt) based broth. Ask for less salt as I feel Japanese ramen typically is quite salty. The gyoza is also cooked to perfection. If you have appetite for more, the...fried chicken is also great (ask for mayo on the side). The pork rice with egg is also great. Not much on the menu but every dish is done well. Don’t forget to order a Hakuba beer or the draft beer. I was there literally every day over the course of a week’s visit. Will definitely miss it when gone.More

My girlfriend and I ate here at least twice a week when we were working in Hakuba for the winter. It’s the best ramen in Hakuba!!! The staff are very friendly and helpful, the food is cheap and delicious. Make sure you try the Karaage...if a big bowl of ramen isn’t quite enough.More

I can only repeat previous reviews that this is excellent ramen (I tried two of the four types) and great gyoza. Lining up in the cold while waiting for a place in this "cosy" dining room is all part of the local experience (provided you're...wearing the right gear of course). Don't forget to put your name down when you arrive if there's a line. Turnover is reasonably quick.More
