Arrived at opening and was fortunate to get a seat almost straight away. The serving size is generous and the tonkotsu broth is chock a block full of flavour - hard to express how good it was - and all for 850Yen. A little bit...More
Lots local people claim this place is the number 1 ramen place in Kyoto. It's a rare Nagahama style pork broth ramen restaurant Kyoto. It's very much street style, so if you are looking for well organized clean restaurant, this is not for you....More
Years ago, I lived in Kyoto, this was all of our go to spot. The broth, the noodles and the toppings are amazing. "Sex in a bowl" is how my girlfriend, now wife, described it. We both love Japan and still dream of their Chashu...More

Though small by comparison, Pontocho is one of Kyoto's most spirited and memorable neighborhoods. A narrow street straddling the Kamogawa River, it is Kyoto's busiest nightlife spot. When darkness falls, Pontocho's many signs and lanterns bolt to life, making the area glow with invitations to passers-by to come inside and pull up a chair. Its restaurants and bars sprawl onto the riverbank, providing a friendly
atmosphere and delicious food. Verandas are always filled with people young and old crowding tables, biting into hot yakitori or sipping cold beers. It is a culinary heart of Kyoto as much as one of its most laid-back, clamorous, and entertaining evening hotspots. Pontocho has more of an amiable vibrancy to it than an elegant one, attracting newcomers, local veterans, and everyone in between, in casual attire like sneakers and jeans.
