Greats prices, great food, and friendly locals. Can't recommend this place enough.

No English menu, but there are some pictures.


Great noodles.


Head here to Kamakura Taishoken for salt replenishment❗️

There are four main menu items: Chinese soba (soy sauce), salt ramen, Ago soup ramen, and mori soba.
I don't like tsukemen, so I choose ramen.
When I decided to try soy sauce, I discovered that there was a menu called ``Special Ramen'' on one of the buttons on the ticket vending machine! ️
I'll probably post them all.
It is unclear whether the soup is soy sauce, salt, or chin soup stock.

I'm looking forward to seeing what kind of soup it comes with.

It arrived in a fairly large bowl.
The soup tastes like soy sauce but has a seafood flavor.
It also has a refreshing sweetness from the fat.
Soup is delicious!! ️

The noodles are thick and chewy.
It's worth eating.

The special ramen included everything.
The normal version of the egg is half boiled with the yolk, but in addition to that, it also comes with a flavored egg with a runny yolk, and if you get a large serving of seaweed, green onion, and shinachiku, you'll also get 3 slices of chashu! ️

My friend ordered chashu toppings, and compared to that chashu topping, it might be a little thinner.
If you like chashu, please choose the chashu topping.

It's delicious even though you can sit down right away, so please try saying it even if it's a little walk from Enoshima station! ️


We visited in early February 2024.
I ordered the seafood ramen with chin soup stock. Seafood ramen for the first time in a while.
The soup had a nice aroma and went well with the medium-thick noodles, and it was very delicious! I was impressed by the care and attention to detail that the chef was making. It has become one of the stores I want to visit again!


[Kamakura Taishoken]
After visiting a general hospital in Kamakura City, I couldn't find the right time to go to this store, so I decided to go there this time! Fortunately, the coin parking opposite was empty♪

So I entered the store around 12:46.
4 customers first, 3 customers after.

When I entered the store, I used the ticket vending machine on the right to select the Ago seafood ramen (950 yen) and the flavored egg (120 yen), both of which were recommended by my high school senior.

After taking a seat on the far right side of the counter, I handed over my meal ticket and waited for it to be served.

While I was waiting, a colored paper on the counter suddenly caught my eye. It was handwritten by Kazuo Yamagishi, the founder of Higashiikebukuro Taishoken. Thank you (-person-)✨

And soon a huge bowl arrived!!
Even before I eat it, the smell of the fish and seafood stimulates my nostrils.

The soup is of course piping hot, and the flavor of Ago (flying fish), also known as the third soup stock, is fused with seafood! Hmm, I can't help it.

Homemade noodles have a lot of noodles, are easy to slurp, and taste great down the throat. The menma and chashu are delicious, and the half-boiled and flavorful eggs I added are also good (I'm in a Goro Inogashira state lol).

Hmm, I could eat it as it is, but I was able to enjoy the different flavor of the peppercorns and finished the whole thing♪

Ah, it was delicious.
What should I eat next time? Please let me know if you have any recommendations.

So, thank you for the meal today (-person-)✨I'm very satisfied♪
