Ryushanhai has been a personal favorite of mine ever since I tried it for the first time at the Yokohama Raumen Museum. And although this isn't a so-called "Yonezawa Ramen" nor is it the honten (original location), I wasn't going to pass it up without a look. Famous for their Akayu Ramen and Karamiso topping, Ryushanhai is two words--good sh**! The karamiso provides a slight pinch of spiciness that alerts your senses to an almost perfect ramen. The chashu is moist and delicious and the thick homemade noodles are incredible. Did you hear me? I said it was good sh**!
It's about a 30-40 minute walk from Yonezawa Station so it might just be better to call a taxi. The only problem with that though is you'll have a tough time finding a cab on the way back. Be prepared to burn off those calories you just ate. Anyhow, from Yonezawa Station head West on the main street that veers right. Then make a right at the Onuma (大沼デパート) department store and just keep walking and walking and walking until you see it on the left. You will be asked for your order as soon as you walk in so be prepared ahead of time. If it's busy, there's a bench inside the ramen-ya towards the back where people line up. They are open from 11:30am to 7pm and closed on Wednesdays.
