Here’s what they had to say about this one – ‘Asahikawa, a city in Hokkaido, is famous for its ‘ramen village’ and has its own regional ramen like many other cities in Japan. You don’t have to fly all the way to this old city in winter because Asahikawa will come to your warm, cozy home with this tasty version of shoyu ramen.’ Sounds interesting – let’s hit it!

An interesting mixture.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added chashu pork, spring onion, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, hard boiled egg, and shichimi togartashi. The noodles were alright although nothing fantastic. The broth has a kind of over-soy kind of taste to them I disliked. The inclusion of the bits of scrambled egg was nice at least. 3.25 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4902105245026.
