    Gifu Pref. Takayamashi Hachikenmachi 2-62
    This ramen shop is located a 10-minute walk from Takayama Station on the JR Takayama Main Line. Originally founded in 1948, the shop’s Japanese-style building was renovated in 2004. Its natural wood counter and a table equipped with a traditional-style sunken hearth create a retro atmosphere reminiscent of the Showa period. The shop’s two most popular items are their chuka soba (ramen noodles), popular for its secret soy sauce-based broth, and their thick-cut homemade tsukemen (dipping noodles), which are paired with a rich seafood-derived sauce. Each can be ordered with extra noodles or extra slices of roast pork. Come enjoy old-fashioned flavors in the shop’s Takayama-style interior, which is decorated with items such as sarubobo (human-shaped amulets) and ema (votive images horses).

    This is incredible taste! It’s very deep and smooth booth with curly noodle. If you would like to have “real Takayama ramen” when I definitely highly recommend. I’m a Japanese from Hawaii. I was...

    Gifu Pref. Takayamashi Honmachi 4-23
    This long-established Chinese soba noodle shop founded in 1948 is approximately ten minutes on foot from JR Takayama Station. Using pure water from Hida-Takayama and high quality locally grown vegetables whenever possible, their noodles have a simple, old-style flavor with soy sauce and seasoning added directly to the cooking pot. The only toppings are chashu pork, menma bamboo shoot, and onion. The Japanese style bonito broth is deep colored and simple. Their wavy egg noodles are made in-house, and go great with the soup, giving it an old-school flavor. They have a smaller branch on the corner across the way.

    Several hotels in Takayama provide free vouchers (with a map) to experience a basic ramen noodle meal in 14 local restaurants. It was a bit of fun to find your way to these small diners and just...

    Gifu Pref. Takayamashi Asahimachi 30
    This local Hida-Takayama ramen noodle shop is in Asahi-machi, Takayama City, Gifu Prefecture. An old-fashioned sign that reads Chuka Soba (Chinese Noodles) is its landmark. They make their broth by adding soy sauce to chicken and fish stock and simmering, rather than adding the soup directly to a soy sauce base. Their simple toppings of pork belly slices, menma bamboo shoot, and green onion go great with the thin, wavy noodles. They also have items that aren't its speciality, including their popular mini-gyudon beef on rice. It's made with local Hida beef.

    Gifu Pref. Takayamashi Asahimachi 52
    A Takayama ramen restaurant established in 1956. While most Takayama ramen places use a chicken bone-based broth, this establishment uses a pork bone, vegetable, and shoyu (soy sauce) -based broth. This simple yet flavorful broth combined with thin crimped noodles that carry it well, results in a ramen that is tasty and somehow familiar-feeling. The restaurant’s chashu noodles, topped with four slices of thick-cut roast pork chashu with just the right amount of fat, are also popular.

    8月に行きました。高山ラーメンを食べようと幾つかネットで探しましたが、暑いのにどこも結構混んでます。表通りから少し入ったこのお店、割と空いており地元の方風のお客さんが入ってので、思い切って入りました。 リーズナブルで、待たずに高山ラーメンが頂けます。満足。 Good Ramen shop but unknown, if you dont have long time for lunch...

    Gifu Pref. Takayamashi Nyukawachouboukata 2114
    A ramen factory located a 15 minute drive from the Takayama Interchange which has been making Takayama’s famous Itakura Ramen noodles for 50 years. The factory offers a tour on which you can watch the entire production process and sample some of the products—private individuals need make no advance reservations, so feel free to stop by and take the tour. The facility also has a souvenir shop carrying Takayama specialty products and a restaurant where you can eat an abundant variety of Itakura Ramen. Here you can enjoy the naturally delicious flavor created by coloring-free thin crimped noodles and an original broth made with highland vegetables simmered in overwintering water from the Northern Alps.

    Gifu Takayama-shi Honmachi 3-58
    This ramen shop that has been loved for more than half a century in Takayama is where you can eat New Year's ramen instead of New Year's soba noodles. You can eat traditional ramen noodles in this retro shop nestled in a narrow alleyway. The soup made with a chicken base and vegetables and bonito has a simple soy sauce taste. It goes perfectly with the curly thin noodles, and is something you want to eat after drinking alcohol. In addition to basic ramen, they also have Char siu pork and wonton noodles, chilled ramen available only in the summer.

    Located in an alley off the busy main road, as you walk through the Kikyoya entrance you are whisked in a time machine to Showa 1961. There the owner and his family prepare the dishes on vintage...
