“The Counter Area”
“The ticket vending machine at the corner of the shop.”
This ramen shop has a total of 13 counter seats and the dining area is not so spacious so you’ll be seating next to other customers, and this place is shockingly clean despite the number of customers visiting the place every single day.
You can choose your food from the ticket vending machine located beside entrance/exit the shop.
Most of their customers are (locals) “salarymen” or and some foreign travelers.
“Akiago Shio(salt) Ramen”
This bowl is a popular choice in this restaurant because of its extremely satisfying taste made with grilled flying fish stock. This ramen is highly recommended and definitely worth the wait.
