Location and contact

From the thousand-year history of Kyoto to the thousand winds in the sky, we present an unforgettable taste carefully prepared for each and every one of our customers. In line with our store’s concept of Health-Conscious Ramen, we present quality ingredients and a delicious taste in every bowl. Our ingredients are natural and safe, and our tonkotsu (pork-based) soup comes in four delicious varieties: the slightly salty Shio, the soy sauce-based Shoyu, our Miso flavor-based ramen, and our Spicy Miso-based ramen. Also on offer are ramen dishes such as our seafood-based Sen no Shio; the seafood/soy sauce-based Kii Soba; and our pork-free, delightfully simple Su Ramen. Please feel free to leisurely

Research opening times before going. The place fills up fast, you may need to get a ticket and come back at an allocated time. Saying that it was worth the wait. Ramen was beautiful and close to the best I've had. The quiet and intimate...More

Sorry for the rating but we were there by 7 and they close at 10 and they were already out of soup. There were plenty of people who were turned away in the short 5 minutes were there.

Waited almost two hours (1.50 to be exact) even though the waiting time was supposed to be about 35 minutes. I would understand if the line was huge but there were a total of 6 “tables” before me, and one did not even show up....More

Pros: it was cheap, the shio broth was tasty and the pork was okay. Cons: the egg was overcooked. Not worth the wait.

Even if they claim the wait is under half an hour it will be well over an hour. The hostess will be rude and the food will be bland and boring. Other reviewers are crazy this place is not worth waiting 10 minutes.

We had aimed to go to another ramen restaurant but once we got there there was a massive wait. We took a short walk and found this great place. Quick and easy tasty ramen! Also great to not be the only westerners there!

The Ramen was very tasty, I tried the spicy one, and it had a lot of flavour, the pork was very tender. And the gyozas were nice as well.

We were in Kyoto for 4 days and went here twice. Definitely last meal - type ramen. Good gyoza as well. Cool shop owners and very popular. Take a ticket when you get there and stay for the wait - you won’t be sorry!

I ate a lot of ramen when I travelled around Japan, all of which was good, this one was my favourite. If I ever find myself back in Kyoto I would want to eat here again. The broth and quality of the ingredients were all...More

Shinkyogoku Shopping District
Those who delight in shopping and cuisine will find
themselves at home in Shinkyogoku. Lauded and visited
by locals for its Nishiki Market, where baskets of
fragrant spices, dried fish, and just-fried foods are
piled high along the snaking streets of its enclosed
outdoor shopping spaces, Shinkyogoku is not only a hub
for fresh fare, but also for fast fashion fixes.

Yes they do! They have a soy milk- and kelp-based soup broth. There is also a miso-version. However I don't know if they use dashi in the miso-based soup. Just make sure to tell them that you want a vegetarian version.
