    Hokkaido Chitoseshi Bibi New Chitose Airport Terminal Building 3F Hokkaido Ramen Dojo
    This ramen shop is located on the third floor of the New Chitose Airport domestic terminal building, Chitose City, Hokkaido. The ramen shop’s shrimp soup, made by slowly boiling heaps of northern shrimp heads, has a thick taste with the flavor of shrimp and is particularly good. The made-to-order thick and thin noodles, special ingredients, and crimson red colored bowls like the color of shrimp, all go together well to complement the flavor of the aromatic soup. The interior is bright and spacious, with storage space for bags, etc. under each table. Last orders are at 8:30pm so you can stop off for some ramen before boarding your flight home.

    You have to prepare to line up for an hour, very unusual situation at airport. There are dozens of ramen shop as it is natural in ramen city Sapporo, but this shop has by far the longest waiting...

    Hokkaido Asahikawa-shi 2 Jodori 8-chome Kaimonokoen-dori Peer
    "This ramen shop, the symbol of Asahikawa, was opened in 1969. The ""W soup,"" which adds an ""animal-based"" soup using pork and chicken bones with the umami of a ""seafood-based"" soup made using dried small sardines and kelp, goes perfectly with the specially-made medium-thin noodles. It is superb because it is rich while having a refreshing aftertaste."

    the food is delicious, i try the miso ramen, but my wife try the shoyu ramen. and we really like the ramen here, we even bought their instant ramen version so we can bring it to our home.

    Hokkaido Chitoseshi Bibi 987 - 22 New Chitose Airport Domestic Terminal Building 3F
    Boasting a headquarters in Susukino area of Sapporo, this store is a miso ramen shop. Their motto is 'miso ramen that wakes all your five senses.' The trademark ramen has concentrated clear broth with a punch of pork, mature chicken and choice vegetables entwined around medium fat noodles. Their signature Miso Ramen broth is made from a blend of three different types of miso. The salty 'tomi torai men' noodle ramen is made using the fish paste of the 'wonder-fish' the northern blenny, only caught in the winter. The Kani Ramen, in which crab meat and egg whites make a rich gravy, is exclusively offered only at the New Chitose store.

    Small place but best place for okonomiyaki. Had choice of beef, pork, shrimp, or squid. And in some cases a mix of two. Threw some cheese on top and it was one of the best Ive had.

    Hokkaido Asahikawashi Nagayamajuichijou 4-119-48
    This theme park which has assembled together the finest ramen shops from within the city of Asahikawa is approximately 20 minutes by car from JR Asahikawa Station. Current member stores include the eight restaurants of Aoba, Ittetsu-an Matsuda, Ishida, Tenkin, Santoka, Saijo, Koubo Kato and Baikoken. There are even restaurants offering miniature sizes of ramen, so visitors can easily enjoy taste testing at several places. It is also popular among tourists as a unique photo spot with a giant ramen bowl featuring chopsticks holding noodles that appear to be floating in the air.

    The food in Singapore outlet was good but the staff discriminates customers who do not speak Japanese (even in this era), and served us cold pork chashu in their ramen!

    "This ramen shop is a certified ""Kita no Megumi Aishoku Restaurant,"" a government certification that identifies restaurants that focus on crafting cuisine from Hokkaido-produced ingredients. The shop is located in the basement floor of a building attached to Exit 23 of the subway Sapporo Station. They offer up house-made noodles in their carefully crafted ramen. The shop's most popular dish is the Genki no Deru Miso Ramen (energizing miso ramen). It's topped with scrambled eggs mixed with Hokkaido grown ground pork sauteed with gyoja ninniku, or Siberian onion, gathered from the mountains of Hokkaido. The garlic and nira chives are prepared so that you won't have garlic breath afterward! The rich flavor and nutritious ingredients make this bowl a real pick-me-up dish, just like the name says!"

    This ramen noodle shop is located in Chuo Ward, Sapporo city, Hokkaido and is famous as a restaurant where there is always a constant queue of diners. The restaurant offers a wonderful bowl of noodles made from carefully selected produce and cooking process, based on the orthodox Hokkaido Sapporo Ramen concept. Their popular “Miso ramen” made with soup stock of locally grown pork and roasted garlic and miso has a rich and sweet taste. It is open from Tuesday to Saturday until early in the morning and is used by many local customers for the last dish of the night.

    Small hole-in-the-wall ramen restaurant, the type where you can rub shoulders with salaryman during lunch or with high school kids after school. What I mean to say is - its very local and a very...

    Hokkaido Sapporoshi Chuou-ku Minamirokujounishi 3 Mutsukan Hall 1F
    A miso ramen restaurant in Susukino founded in 1999 which sees unending lines of customers. In addition to miso ramen made one bowl at a time using a wok, the restaurant also serves a corn butter ramen made with clarified butter popular with women, and a chashu ramen topped with thick cut domestic roast pork chashu. Also recommended are the spicy karai ramen made with garlic chive-flavored doubanjiang, and the negi ramen topped with a heaping helping of shredded Welsh onion.

    If you are looking for good ramen and do not mind waiting as this is the place to come to enjoy it. This is quite a small place as it can only seat 10 people at a time and that is why you will see a...

    Hokkaido Kawakamigunteshikagachou Mashu 1-1-18
    This popular ramen shop is located in Teshikaga at the mountain foot of Lake Mashu. The soup is made by stewing the rich subterranean water of Lake Mashu for a long time, and has a deep flavor that keeps the traditional preparation methods alive. The soup is boiled over a long period of time over low heat, a process passed down from the time when wood stoves were still used, which brings out the savoriness of the pork bones. The ramen combines a seafood soup with fragrant soy sauce and rich miso, and has long been loved by both locals and tourists. The Soy Sauce enriched with seafood, made from numerous types of seafood and vegetables, could not be made without ingredients from Hokkaido. It has also been acknowledged by the Shoyu Meisho (soy sauce master) held by the information center.

    We liked the miso-based ramen. The price was reasonable. We even bought two boxes of dry noodles with soup paste after the meal. The boss/manager was very friendly. When I asked if he had other...

    Hokkaido Sapporo-shi Toyohira-ku Hiragishi 2-jo 17-1-41
    "A ramen restaurant located a five-minute walk from Sumikawa Station on the Sapporo Municipal Subway Namboku Line. Established in 1964, the restaurant is known for its rich ramen whose flavor has remained unchanged since it first opened its doors. The restaurant's Junren miso ramen, topped with chewy menma fermented bamboo shoots and shoulder roast chashu pork fillets, is richer than any other Sapporo-style ramen yet, at the same time, has a clean aftertaste thanks to the addition of ginger root. The restaurant has been featured on the HBC food program ""Gurume TV: Tabereba Hokkaido."""

    Noodles is springy, soup is tasty. However, it is much more oily compared to other famous hokkaido ramen. Went there during lunch, which is crowded with office people (mostly).

    Hokkaido Sapporo-shi Chuo-ku Minami 3-jo nishi 7-1 Tanukikoji 7
    "This shop took off as a ""one coin"" ramen shop in Sapporo. They offer two reasonably priced styles, salt-broth and soy sauce broth, as they have always done. The thick pork bone based broth is lighter than it looks, and guests often drink it dry. They top their bowls with boiled egg, char siu pork, and iwanori seaweed, and sell it all for 500 yen. Their big standard is the akadama topping, which are spicy chicken meatballs. They recommend eating the first one as-is, then crumbling the second one and mixing it in to see how the taste changes."

    Smaller place, which means theres sometimes a queue, but its usually pretty good! Recommendation is Miso-ramen which is nice and rich almost creamy in its nuttiness.

    Hokkaido Sapporo-shi Chuo-ku Kita 2-jo nishi 1 Peer 21-1F
    This is the main shop of a popular ramen chain that has locations as far as Tokyo and Fukuoka. They offer miso ramen made with care in a building across from the Hokkaido Television Broadcasting studio. Their popular Awase Miso Ramen mixes hearty white miso with clean red miso in a delicate harmony. The rich soup matches perfectly with medium-thick noodles and massive char siu pork slices, which cover fully 1/3 of the bowl's surface. Under that char siu the noodles are topped with sauteed carrots, chives, and beansprouts. People come from all over for a taste of just how great mixed miso can be.

    Stopped for a late dinner near our hotel. Service was very good. Ramen soup was very good with a nice savory broth. Beer was good too. Looked like locals in the restaurant rather then tourists

    Shari-cho, Shari-gun, Hokkaido Utoro west 176-10
    You can enjoy both ramen and sake here, in Shiretoko, Hokkaido. A ramen specialty shop from 11:00 to 14:30, you can taste things besides ramen such as authentic shochu and yakitori grilled chicken from 17:30 to 22:00. The character for noodle is a landmark from the National Route, and Ramen, Yakitori, Sake is written on the white curtain of the restaurant. There are horigotatsu (seating sunken into the floor) and counter seats that line the open kitchen, creating a calm space. The Tokusen Toro Chashumen (ramen with special fatty roasted pork) is limited in quantity, and their skewers and pickle platters are bar food items that go with shochu.

    We ordered the ramen and 300 yen rice bowl. Also ordered the Sochu which was fantastic . The 300 yen bowls are only good for half a meal . Service was good . Restaurant had a beautiful view of the...

    Hokkaido Furanoshi Saiwaichou 12-6
    In this famous ramen shop in Furano City in Hokkaido, you can taste noodles made by trial and error by the owner who travelled nationwide tasting ramen. Unusual in Hokkaido the noodles are straight, and popular dishes include the “Chinese Soba” made with a base of pork bone and seafood, and “Scorched Salt Ramen” with a fragrance of scorched garlic oil and sesame. After being introduced on TV the restaurant has become well-known nationwide, and every day the queue is never-ending.

    This is a local eatery, hidden gem. Just one traffic light away from Furano Mache souvenir shop. Right next to a branch of 小玉そぼeatery. We had lunch there after searching on yelp #3! We were looking...

    Hokkaido Hakodateshi Matsukazechou 7-12
    This long-established ramen shop, founded in 1947 in Hakodate City, Hokkaido, is highly regarded for its straight noodles freshly hand made every day. Even though it is small, it’s a popular shop visited by many tourists. Their reasonably priced salty ramen, with its soup so transparent you can see the bottom of the bowl, is a particular favorite. The light soup slowly boiled with chicken and pork bones, kelp and vegetables accompanied with a side dish of fried dumplings is well worth trying.

    Excellent salt ramen for 500 yen. Heard about this place from locals. Arrived at 11:30am (right when they open), every seat was taken by local business people, so I waited about 15 minutes for a seat...

    This ramen shop is famous for its curry ramen, a local gourmet item in Tomakomai. The soup is made with a paste that has over ten different spices and fruit. With its rich tonkotsu (pork broth) base, it has a thick and traditional taste. The soup goes incredibly well with the medium-thick wrinkled noodles.

    I had the curry / soy ramen. It was really amazing. Nice little and old ramen shop in a charming spa town.

    Hokkaido Noboribetsushi Noboribetsuonsenchou 29-9
    This is a shop famous for curry noodles and spicy ramen in Noboribetsu Onsen-cho, Noboribetsu Onsen City, Hokkaido. The perfect balance of spiciness and sweetness in the “Hell Ramen 0-chome” dish makes it popular, and is also a challenge menu with increased spiciness with every number it increases. The onion topping that goes with the spicy flavor is amazing. There are many papers decorating the shop interior showing the successful challengers of the “Hell Ramen 0-chome” eating challenge. “Miso curry ramen”, with miso adding flavor to the spice, is popular amongst the curry ramen flavors.

    If you like being squished in a corner then feel free to come to hell after visiting hell! Hopefully the food tastes better than the atmosphere.

    Hokkaido Wakkanaishi Chuou 2-11-15
    Located right next to Wakkanai Station, it was listed in Michelin Guide Hokkaido 2012 and 2017. Introduced as a delicious salt ramen shop, this popular store is loved by fans because of the unchanging taste since it first opened. The menu only has two types of ramen soup base: salt and soy sauce. The salt ramen is highly recommended. It has a great combination of thin, tapered noodles and a clear, light soup made from kombu kelp, pork bones and vegetables. They have toppings from chashu (roasted pork) to menma (fermented and seasoned bamboo), dried wheat gluten and green onions. While its simple, the flavor has umami and richness.

    具材もシンプルで見た目は普通。強いて言うならスープの量が器のギリギリまではいってる。そして超味が薄い。出汁が効いてるとかではなくとにかく味が薄い。メンマが美味しく感じないってどうゆうこと。

Hokkaido Areas

Not just a prefecture but an island of its own, Hokkaido is the most northerly prefecture and island of the Japanese archipelago. Arriving in Hokkaido, which is rural and bursting with breathtaking nature, means entering a world where vast national parks, towering mountains, and natural hot springs can be found at every turn. Come December, these natural splendors freeze over and morph into a winter wonderland.
