Shirakawa is a city known for great water. And practically every ramen-ya makes their own noodles by hand. Menshou is no different. With two types of noodle for their ramen (they have soba too), order the Omori (large) version if you want to try the thicker one. I ordered the regular size with the regular ramen and was sequentially satisfied. The soup is an assari torigara (chicken) base that was thirst-quenchingly good. If eating ramen were a sport, Menshou would be my ramenade.
Despite how far it may seem, it's only a 15-minute walk from Shinshirakawa Station. Head straight out of the station on the biggest street you see. At the third signal make a right and proceed along the main road for three more signals. Cross the street and you'll see Menshou on your right. They are open from 11am to 4pm and closed on Tuesdays.
