Access from the Station

The location is really close to the station and it’s hard to miss although you won’t see the restaurant’s name in English.

Get off at Jiyugaoka Station (Tokaido Toyoko Line; Oimachi Line) and head straight to the North Exit. The estimated travel time on foot is 1 to 2 minutes from the station.


The restaurant’s logo which has the name of the place “Juyugaoka” is written in English and “Ichibanya” is in hiragana form. It is themed with white or beige and mahogany color that harmonously blend with each other.

The building definitely looks not new anymore but I can say that it has been well-mintained over the years. No lines during my visit so it means you have to choose the time so as not to line up on a busy day.


The interior outline of Jiyugaoka Ichibanya is really unembellished and it only has 13 counter seats to accommodate the customers. The themed color used inside the dining area perfectly matches with the color of the exterior concept.

As for the ambiance, it’s relaxing and comfortable to eat although I felt it was a little hot when I visited the place. Upon entering the restaurant, you’ll see a vending machine where you can choose your order and it is at the left corner next to the entrance door.

There were some vacant seats when I visited there around 8 in the evening so it wasn’t crowded at all. The situation varies each day and you may end up queuing during peak hours.

Since the place has a limited space, I suggest you come here alone or with a friend/co-worker. Well, all customers are welcome of course, and that includes children as well. Most of the customers I’ve seen were Japanese locals.

Recommended Menu

Shoyu Ramen:

Shoyu Ramen is what the customers recommend the most. True to what’s been said, it really tastes so great that I can even eat more depsite the fact that I have already eaten a lot before visiting this place.

The taste is not so strong and it was so easy to eat. The noodles are thin but not really the smooth-slurpy type.

Additional Information

The store may close before the closing time as soon as the soup runs out.

Recommended when eating alone, with a friend/co-worker, and possible for dating couples.

Kids are welcome.

Cons: Secluded space.

本日のディナーは、自由が丘にある🍜『いちばんや』さんにて、三年熟成醤油三種入りラーメン¥1,000をいただきました🤤。 徹底された天然への拘り、化学調味料無使用、無添加は勿論ですが、豚、鶏、卵なども厳選安心素材と言う事で、抗生物質やホルモン剤、化学物質を一切使用せずに育てたものだけを使っているそうです。 卓上調味料も厳選素材でした😁。 肝心の味も天然鰹出汁など諸々が効いていて美味しかったですが、麺にもっとパンチが欲しかったです😊。 ・ ・ ・ #麺 #ラーメン部 #ラーメン倶楽部 #らーめん部 #らーめん倶楽部 #らーめん大好き #ラーメン大好き #麺インスタグラマー #麺類 #ラーメンパトロール #麺部 #メンスタグラム #ラーメンスタグラム #拉麺 #麺stagram #麺スタ #ramen #ラーメン好き #らーめん好き #麺好き #麺インスタグラム #麺喰い #麺ヘラ #ラーメンインスタグラム #いちばんや #醤油ラーメン #醤油らーめん #厳選素材 #自由が丘グルメ #熟成醤油
