Of the various types of ramen broth available, my favourite is the Hakata/Kyushu style made using pork bones. Therefore, the first place I tried at the Kyoto Ramen Koji floor was Hakata Ikkousha. The place is quite tiny (as are the rest of the ramen places on the same floor), seating about 15 people at a time only.

At peak times there can be a queue, but it moves moderately quickly (people slurp down their ramen and go). You order via a vending machine out front and wait at the seats provided (same as the other places).

The ramen noodles here are the thinner variety, perfectly cooked with a touch of springiness that I like (some are more chewy). The broth is tasty and nicely balanced, flavourful without being too salty. 4 thinly sliced pieces of pork are provided, which are very tender, together with a whole ajitama egg (normally other places cut it into 2 halves).

Oh, the fried rice and fried chicken here are also very good!

Kyoto Ramen Koji is a “ramen alley” with several ramen shops. We decided to choose the one with the longest line – the popular one, we figured. The problem was none of the staff speak much English, if at all and, therefore, could not explain the process. Turns out we need to pick an order at the vending machine and present the ticket when we enter. We finally chose Ikkousha because the girl at the door knew some English and was able to explain the process. The ramen was fantastic, though I could go without the rice with fish roe, which came as a set for ¥1,000. The pork literally melts in the mouth; the broth flavorful and the noodles are al dente. It was our cheapest meal in Kyoto.
