Small ramen bar in a side street close to Kyōto station. You can order two kinds of ramen an tsukemen ramen, but the taste of the ramen is fantastic. Be prepared to pay cash at a vending machine to order the ramen.

I've never had an experience where I was still thinking about the food for several hours after I ate it. Considered going back to the same night for dinner, but decided we were better than that. Wish everyone gets a chance to go and enjoy...More

Seriously, get their Nikumiso ramen! It is the BEST ramen I've ever had, and I've been coming to japan almost yearly since 2008. My hubby was curious to try it (I went for the tsukemen) and I regretted it the instant I've tried his ramen....More

A classic ramen bar specializing in miso tsukemen, or dipping noodles. The sauce is complex and balanced while the noodles are perfectly pulled. A very authentic place just 10 minutes from the train station!

We read about this place on a travel blog and realised it was right near our accommodation. Very unassuming place with a tiny shop front. The guys in there don't speak much English (if any) but they have a good English menu. The food was...More

Great little ramen place on a smallish street. This place uses the coupon system. So buy a ticket from the machine (there are English instructions), wait for a seat to open up and hand your ticket in to one of the guys behind the counter....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
