gokkeic_b

When it comes to Kyoto, of all the typical things that would come to your mind such as temples, Kimono, traditional cultures or whatever you came up with, “Ramen” has been little-known to people as one of the most delicious food in Kyoto!

It is commonly said that ramen are delicious anywhere in Japan, but believe or not, Kyoto is secretly known as having the best ramen!

That is why it is totally worth sharing this article and letting you know that you are going to miss out on a chance to try the best ramen in Kyoto unless you read this! 

Those five ramen shops below with pictures are known as the best ramen shops.

 

1.Shikura

One of the best ramen shops in Kyoto is Shikura! The long wait outside shows how tasteful the ramen is and how it is appreciated among local residents.

Also, the best part when you order ramen is that you can adjust the amount of soy sauce, how oily you want it to be, and how you want your noodles to be cooked as well so that you can have your own delicious ramen!

You are not going to regret this!

Hours: Lunch 11:30~14:30/Dinner 17:00~24:00

Wednesday is closed.

Location: 14 Hirano Miyakitacho, Kita Ward, Kyoto, Kyoto Prefecture

 

 

2.Hakata-Nagahama Ramen Miyoshi

Miyoshi is quite different ramen from the other ones, however, it still tastes amazing.

It’s not Kyoto-ramen, but Kyusyu-ramen. Regardless of origin, it is still Japanese and it has tonkotsu for soup (Tonkotsu : thick broth made from boiling pork bones, fat, and collagen) !

Also, location would be perfect for you because that’s the place where you will have fun walking around Shijo!

 

 

 

Hours: 11:00~following morning 6:00

Location: Ishiyacho 115, Nakagyo-ku, Kyoto-shi, Kyoto

 

 

3.Menya Gokkei

Without a doubt, Gokkei is one of the most popular ramens in Kyoto City ! Within the fierce battleground in ichijoji ramen area, this existence is cut above the average.

Especially, they use a huge amount of chicken to make the delicious rich soup and it has not unpleasant odor or anything and it’s unbelievably unfatty!

This ramen shop is one of the greatest ramen shops with an inevitable long line! Try it or you’ll ever regret this.

 

Hours: 11:30~22:00

Monday is closed.

Location: 29-7 Ichijoji Nishitojikawaracho, Sakyo-ku, Kyoto-shi, Kyoto

 

4.Yamazaki-Menjiro

Chicken-based Japanese-style soup is fantastically amazing. It’s not going to have a rich taste as those ramens above because it’s more like a salty ramen. HOWEVER, it tastes a deep original of this ramen shop that no where else could copy.

Hard to tell how tasteful it is… Well, then why don’t you try it?

 

Hours: 11:30~14:00/18:00~22:00

Monday is closed.

Location: 1-8 Nishinokyo Kitaenmachi, Nakagyo-ku, Kyoto-shi, Kyoto

 

5. Appareya

Finally, the last ramen I want to share with you today is this gorgeous looking tasteful ramen with slices of roasted porks!

The best part, as you can see, is the bunch of roasted porks on the rich soup that makes them even better quality! They are incredibly soft and succulent and lots of people are desperately craving for them!

For those who want to try ramen with a bunch of porks, this would be the one for you.

Hours: 11:30~14:30

Sunday and Holidays are closed

Location: Shimonokoji-11 Nashima, Joyo, Kyoto

 

Those are the best ramens you should definitely try!

In regards to prices, they range from 700~1500yen so they are pretty much decent!

Getting cold these days and craving for food that’s getting you warm enough…

Those ramens are waiting for you!

The beauty of Arashiyama

ホズリバー-735x488

Have you ever visited Arashiyama before? If not, this will be one of the most enjoyable spots you’ll ever find! Love at first sight. That’s how I describe Arashiyama. The biggest reason why Arashiyama is one of the most enjoyable spots is because the entire place is filled with number of shrines, temples and shops selling food and souvenirs. You’ll come across them when walking around Arashiyama.

Arashiyama is particularly popular during the cherry blossom and fall colors. (Pictures below)

Trees will turn red in mid to end November.

Bamboo Grove Road

Also, the green bamboo grove road is definitely one of the spots you should walk along. It might look like an endless road extending its arm in every direction.

There is nothing like a relaxing stroll through this road.

Location: About 20 minutes on foot (about 1.5 km) to the northwest of Arashiyama Station

 

Rickshaw

Rickshaws are highly recommended to take a leisurely ride for sightseeing in Arashiyama. This is the traditional method of transportation in the Meiji and Taisho periods, which is why riding a rickshaw has become popular.

人力車

Rickshaws have a 2 person seating capacity. These man-powered excursion carry you guys on a course from the Togetsu bridge to the Nonomiya shrine and Sagano Bamboo Grove. Those men also act as guides, providing a relaxed tour where you can enjoy Arashiyama!

Cost: One passenger 2000 yen
two passengers 3000 yen (per leg)
30 minute reservation course: One passenger 5000 yen, two passengers 8000 yen

 

Hozu River Whitewater Excursions

A little unknown spot in Arashiyama that people tend to miss out is the Hozu River Whitewater. The best parts of this trip are the views of the beautiful forested river banks of the Hozu Valley and some amazingly shaped rocks. Especially during the fall, some of the leaves turn into red that’ll even make the views better!ホズリバー2

ホズリバー

Other than those spots, there is also a foot spa inside of Arashiyama station with only 150 yen. It’ll be very nice to rest your foot after long walk from exploring Arashiyama!

Those are the spots I would highly recommend you to visit!
