Ordered the Shio Ramen and it was amazing! Not that salty and the broth wasn't very thick, just nice. The noodle's hardness was also just right. Gyoza and Karaage was good too! Worth every penny.
The vibe of the space was great with only approximately 5 bar seats and 12 pax worth of table seats. You might have to wait during the peak periods.


Walked there from the bus stop after a big day of skiing at 47. Fortunately for me they opened for dinner at 5pm and I arrived 5 minutes before, so was first in and served. They were all sold out of the spicy sesame ramen from the lunch service, so I ordered the salty ramen, gyoza and karaage chicken washed down with an ice cold Asahi.
Service was prompt and they had an English menu, food was excellent and as previously stated, the fermented wheat juice was bloody ice cold.
Would definitely recommend to my mates, although it is only small and doesn’t take bookings, so you may have to wait.
Cash only, so come prepared, but very reasonable value at 2600¥ total (about $27AUD).
I have every intention of going back.


Smallish ramen restaurant my go to in Hakuba. Tried the miso last time this time went for the spicy sesame ramen like a dan dan style: if u are one to drink ramen soup then maybe this spicy one is too thick and rich , can go for the regular shio or miso flavor one.


This place is really cool, no reservation allowed, just a sign up board you have to write on. Bring cash (or you have to walk to Big supermarket ATM)


Small cozy restaurant. Very yummy ramen! I had the spicy sesame ramen. It’s just a hint of spiciness. Soup is really Unami pork broth!! 👍🏼Cash only!!
