Simple, small restaurant. We arrived around 2pm so the restaurant has one other table apart from us. The menu is simple, only 3 different types of Ramen with 2 different size. Very delicious, one of the best ramen we have tasted.

Good noodles & beer. Filled to capacity with locals - so you know it's good. We had to wait approx 10 mins for entry so it can get busy at lunch

We found this place by accident, and boy are we glad we did! Oh my goodness, the curry was spectacular. My wife had the Takayama ramen and I was immediately jealous. Very rustic decor, friendly couple running the place. Just a place a starring traveler needed.

Simple clean place provided great lunch; deeply flavored stock with freshly cooked ramen, and a couple of paper thin slices of pork was spot on. ¥650 gets you a nice bowl (¥800 for large portion) with side of rice and pickles. Add-ons of egg and other ingredients possible. No English spoken, but friendly ladies will supply coherent English menu. About... More

The place is authentic, open until late at night and the traditional noodle soup is very tasty and inexpensive (650 yen). Don't have the gyouza or nihonshu. They are not their speciality.

The soya soup is not too thick and nice to go with freshly garlic. The noodle is served with extra bowl of rice. So do not order big portion of you have small appetite.

This small ramen shop is located south of Takayama railway station: walk south along the main street fronting the station till you meet the first T-junction, turn right and cross the bridge and it is located to the left after the first set of traffic lights at the crossroad. There appear to be two shops: the restaurant (first shop) and... More

While there is no address listed here or signage for that matter, you spot the queue as you walk over the railway bridge walking towards the takayama green hotel. Three types of ramen and a few extra's, it was nice to escape the tourist places and prices in the old town!

First of all let's clarify the "place". We are talking about the tiny restaurant on the 158 route, just south the railway station. You're not just going to the restaurant, you're going to be met by a man who will let you enter his house and offer you the same food he would prepare for his family (we actually ate... More

Local restaurant that specialises in bowls of locally made ramen noodles covered in broth with pork and spring onion. It was delicious and a good way to refuel whilst exploring all that Takayama has to offer. Would recommend.
