Ramen House Aoba (らうめん青葉) - 2Jodori, Asahikawa, Japan (Hokkaido)

Ramen (or Raumen) House Aoba is the oldest ramen shop in Asahikawa. It reaches 3 generations deep and while the rest of the city has embraced the influx of tonkotsu-shoyu ramen, Aoba has stayed true to its roots with a pure assari-kei shoyu ramen made with the freshest blend of land and sea. You won't find any tonkotsu in this soup, which consists mainly of torigara, konbu, and various vegetables. The noodles are made fresh and it shows. If you're lucky, you may even get to sit down and chat with the ramen master--Murayama-san.


From Asahikawa Station head East away from the main shopping street and take a left on the next big street heading North. Walk five blocks and it'll be on your left. It's about five minutes from the station. They open at 9:30am and close at 10pm (9:30pm on Sundays). They are closed on Wednesdays. Grab a seat and try to embrace the history.

Beautiful...
Keizo are you left handed? Maybe I only caught it but it was funny to see the hefty chasu slip down the chopsticks slightly as the time went by.. Aw man, these are "ikitete yokatta.." moments, haha.

Hi Keizo,

I love their custom logo'd seaweed. :) It's definitely on my list of places to try in Asahikawa. Thanks.
