    Kagoshima Pref. Kagoshimashi Yamanokuchichou 9-41
    A popular ramen restaurant that is also one of Kagoshima's best located in the Temmonkan-dori shopping arcade. As its name implies in Japanese, the restaurant's specialty Tontoro Ramen is topped with pork that practically melts in your mouth. The broth, made with pork bones, chicken bones, and seafood, is surprisingly light, making it popular with the shop's women customers as well. The rice with roasted pork is also popular and includes a heaping helping of chashu roast pork made with neck meat, a rare delicacy of which only a small amount can be obtained from one animal. A three-minute walk from Takamibaba Station on the municipal tram.

    My sinful indulgence while still living in Kagoshima. Broth was thick and sumptuous, all that bone brothy goodness just overflowing in every spoonful.

    Kagoshima Pref. Kagoshimashi Higashisengokuchou 11-19
    A long-standing ramen restaurant which has been in business since 1950. The establishment continues to make use of an open kitchen layout which, at the time it first opened, was quite unusual. The restaurant’s mainstay ramen consists of a rich yet simple broth, a hearty portion of cabbage, and homemade chashu roasted pork made with Berkshire pork raised in Kagoshima. The Berkshire pork chashu rice side dish, likewise made with this tasty chashu, is also popular. The restaurant also offers takeout and mail order ramen using semi-fresh noodles.

    Kagoshima Pref. Ibusukishi Omure 1-1-13
    A ramen restaurant which is dedicated to using Ibusuki ingredients. The establishment is notable for its stylish green and black café-like décor. This popular restaurant was also selected number one by popular vote in the Third Kagoshima Ramen King Tournament. The restaurant’s signature “Katsubushi Ramen” is topped with a mountain of high grade honkare katsuobushi (dried-bonito shavings) along with a custard-like “hot spring” soft boiled egg, natto, and cloud ear mushrooms. The “Kaimondake Ramen” is made with an abundance of Berkshire pork meat miso.

    One of the two famous ramen in town. I tried it and the meal was rich and satisfying. Actually, I’ve tried three ramen restaurants in Ibusuki and I’ve got to say I like this one the most. I noticed...

    Kagoshima Pref. Kagoshimashi Chuouchou 2-8
    A creative and novel ramen restaurant. Here customers can enjoy ramen with unconventional touches unlike anything found in any other establishment. One of the most popular items on the menu is the “Mazegumo”—thick, soup-less maze soba noodles and vegetables covered in a flavorful oil. The restaurant has been featured in media publications and its noodles were also sold as a special, limited time instant noodle cup in the FamilyMart convenience store chain. The establishment also serves four varieties of hot ramen for customers to choose from: WHITE cloud (Light taste soup), Yellow cloud (Miso soup), PURPLE cloud (Soy sauce soup), and DEEP RED cloud (Spicy soy sauce soup).

    鹿児島ラーメンランキング第1位ということで行ってみました。 鹿児島中央駅から歩いてもすぐにあり便利な場所だと思います。 お兄さん二人が切り盛りするカウンター10席くらいの小さなお店なので日曜日13時では並びはないものの満席が続くような状態です。 カウンターの背中側も狭く人が通るたびに背中に当たるようなお店です。 なんとなく一番上にあった白雲(あっさり)を食べましたがクセがなく思った以上にあっさりで...

    Kagoshima Pref. Ibusukishi Kaimonsenta 4392
    A ramen restaurant located at the foot of Kaimondake Volcano a 10-minute walk from JR Higashi-Kaimon Station. Outfitted with a retro tile counter seating area as well as a spacious tatami mat seating area, families with small children will also feel comfortable coming here. In addition to “Katsubushi Ramen,” a local Ibusuki specialty, the restaurant is renowned for its delicious tonkotsu pork bone broth ramen, miso ramen, and simple yet flavorful shio (salt) ramen. The establishment’s chew, medium thick noodles are flavored with just the right amount of salt to bring out the flavor of the wheat flour. Boiled just to the point where they perfectly pick up the broth, these noodles are the proof of a truly superb ramen restaurant.

    薩摩川尻駅と東開聞駅の間の、指宿市開聞仙田の国道226号線沿いにあり、ラーメン、チャーハン、餃子の店です。勝武士(かつぶし)ラーメンを食べた。しょうぶしラーメンと注文してしまったが、カツオの枯れ節がトッピングされているラーメンだった。おいしかった。

    Kagoshima Ichikikushikino-shi Beppu 4285
    "This ramen shop founded in 1970 was the first of several restaurants opened by the Ajikobo Misono group in the prefecture. It has continued to serve ""nostalgic yet innovative"" ramen that combines a soup that has remained unchanged for decades with the latest culinary techniques. Their carefully crafted tonkotsu (pork bone) soup, which is made by boiling choice Kagoshima pork bones in a hagama pot for hours, can fairly be called the original flavor that defines Misono. Their noodles, which are made from a blend of choice domestic flour, pair extremely well with their toppings, which are prepared with the utmost attention to quality and safety. Another popular offering is their maguro ramen, a Kushikino delicacy featuring a soup made by boiling tuna heads and vegetables for hours."

    Kagoshima Kanoya-shi Kitadacho 11134-1
    "This ramen restaurant is the main location of Men's la Pasha, a chain that has several restaurants in the prefecture. Located in a quiet residential neighborhood, it serves bowls of noodles made with top-grade flour. Their popular Kagoshima Shio Ramen won first prize at a ramen competition commemorating the completion of the Kagoshima Route of the Kyushu Shinkansen. Its soup has a light yet robust flavor that is good to the last drop. The blend of wheat flour used in the noodles has been carefully selected to give them flexibility, so it' chewy and going down smoothly. The restaurant's ""Pajamen,"" a tonkotsu shoyu (pork bone and soy sauce) ramen noted for its addictively rich and sweet flavor, is also popular."

    移動中に特に何も考えずにふらっとよって、入店。 ある程度有名な店と知らず、美味しさにびっくりしました。

    Kagoshima Makurazaki-shi Matsunoochou 16
    "This ramen restaurant, located a five-minute drive from Makurazaki Station on the JR Ibusuki Makurazaki Line, serves katsuo ramen, which is characterized by a broth made with an abundance of the skipjack tuna (""katsuo"" in Japanese) which are one of Makurazaki's local specialty products. In order to make it possible for anyone and everyone to enjoy the restaurant's ramen, the establishment uses a light broth made using high grade dried skipjack tuna flakes from Makurazaki, as well as toppings like seasoned and deep-fried skipjack tuna slices and pickled skipjack tuna; and vegetables like ginger, spring onions, and garlic. The chashu roast pork filet ramen, made with Berkshire pork filets from Makurazaki with the skin on, is also recommended."

    枕崎、といえば、「カツオ」を連想する人が多いのではないでしょうか!?そのカツオを使ったラーメンを出してくれるのが「あじひろ」さんです。こちらでは「ぶえんかつお」という脱血&瞬間冷凍されたカツオが使われているので、生臭みは一切ありません。カツオの旨みを楽しめる一杯でした。お店の方もとても親切でしたよ。また訪れたい一軒です。

Kagoshima Areas

around-area-map

Over 100 active volcanoes across Kagoshima make it one of the Japan's most exciting prefectures. The prefectural capital, Kagoshima city, looks out to one of the prefecture’s most spectacular volcanoes, Sakurajima, an island of its own that can be visited and seen close up or admired from afar, with the promise of breathtaking sunsets complete with frequent puffs of smoke and ash. Down the Satsuma Peninsula, the most southerly part of mainland Japan, waterfalls, sand onsen, and fascinating history await, while Kagoshima's abundance of satsuma imo (sweet potato) provide a wholesome snack as well as one of Japan's favourite drinks - shochu.
