    This is a tonkotsu ramen specialty shop in Tenjinnishi Street in the central district of Fukuoka City. One can concentrate on enjoying the taste of ramen in the individually partitioned seating. With the “kamadare” tonkotsu dish, only available in the Tenjinnishi Street shop, one can really savor the rich taste and a full aroma. In addition, the chashu pork here comes from the belly rather than the shoulder, giving it an extra rich flavor. It is a five-minute walk from Nishitetsu Tenjin Omuta Line’s Fukuoka (Tenjin) Station.

    Many people around the world rate this as the Best Tonkotsu Ramen in Japan. I agree because I have tried 25 places for Tonkotsu and it cant be beat. The best part is that you decide on how you...

Their original tonkotsu pork broth stems from a concept of a pure soup that's easy to eat and everyone will drink to the last drop and is made with Aritadori chicken bones from Saga and a blend of herbs and spices. Their Hakata ShinShin Ramen is topped with chashu pork simmered in their secret sauce and can be ordered in a combo set with fried rice or a chashu rice bowl.

    Fukuoka Pref. Kurumeshi Torihokamachi 11-8
    This is the main store of Taiho Ramen, which opened in 1951. Its tonkotsu soup has stewed for half a century and the traditional “yobimodoshi soup” was created here. The chashu pork, prepared from the leg or rib depending on the menu, attest to the care taken by the cooks. It is around eight minutes on foot from Nishitetsu Kurume Station.

    One of the oldest Tonkotsu Ramen restaurant. Depending on your experience of Tokontsu ramen, some people may not tolerate this smell. Locals love the flavor and the taste of this ramen.

    Fukuoka Fukuoka-shi Hakata-ku Higashihirao 2-4-30
    "This restaurant specializing in straight-from-the-pot udon noodles is located right in front of Fukuoka Airport. Founded more than 40 years ago, it is popular for the flavor of its carefully-crafted udon noodles and broth. Their menu includes udon noodles and rice dishes as well as plenty of tasty udon toppings. We recommend their ""goboten udon"" topped with crunchy burdock root tempura, the soul of Fukuoka, and their ""niku goboten udon topped with burdock root tempura and beef, which is their most popular item. We also recommend pairing them with their mixed rice with burdock root and chicken"

    I thought this place was very cool. They make the noodles right in front of you. We had udon soup with shrimp tempura. Was very tasty. The udon noodle machine was very interesting. Its the real deal.

    Fukuoka Pref. Dazaifushi Saifu 2-7-24
    A tea house where guests can enjoy Umegae mochi rice cakes, a local Dazaifu specialty. People love the simple flavor of adzuki sweet beans toasted inside chewy pounded mochi and uruchi rice. Worshipers visiting the local shrines and temples swear the Umegae mochi and green tea (complete with lucky floating tea stalk) set brings good fortune. Every month on the 17th, the shop sells Umegae mochi made with ancient rice varieties, while on the 25th it sells Umegae mochi made with Japanese mugwort. Located immediately after passing through the two torii gates from Dazaifu Station.

    We came to Dazaifu from Fukuoka in the morning. We had tagged this place and Yasutake for the red bean treat. We tried both. Both are great. And the price is the same - 130 yen. You will notice...

    Fukuoka Pref. Fukuokashihakataku Nakasu 5-3-2
    This natural pork bone ramen shop opened in 1960 in Fukuoka, and it is the main location of a chain that is beloved nationwide. The soup is light on the unique pork bone taste and aroma, and it contains a secret sauce made from chili peppers that floats on the surface. Visitors can adjust the toughness of the noodles and the richness of the soup as they see fit. This location offers a “concentration counter” in which the seats are separated by walls, allowing customers to focus on enjoying the bowl of ramen in front of them. The atmosphere of the first floor is redolent of food stalls, and many original menu options are available. The closest station is Nakasu-Kawabata Station.

    A ramen restaurant located in Chuo Ward, Fukuoka City. The restaurant is notable for its use of thin, flat noodles similar to those used in Inaniwa udon. The restaurant's tonkotsu pork bone broth is made with a relatively large ratio of soy sauce, giving it a flavor that is milder than usual and which has been a favorite of locals for years. During lunchtime, the restaurant offers a ramen set meal which includes a half sized serving of fried rice.

    After 2:30 in the afternoon, its hard to find good things to eat in Japan until dinner time. This place was serving, and we wanted Fukuoka-style ramen, so in we went. The gyoza are small, nice and...

The shop is frequented not only by locals but also many tourists seeking gifts and souvenirs."
