Recommended bowl: Roots to 1930

One of the most famous ramen shops in Hakodate, with some of the deepest roots. This shop opened as a Chinese restaurant back in 1930, then years later changed to ramen only. These days the flagship is located on the second floor of a modern building at a large intersection in front of the Goryōkaku Tower. The soup stock is made mostly from chicken bones and pork, as well as kombu from the southern part of Hokkaido, niboshi and ginger. Natural Mongolian rock salt is used in the shio tare. Each bowl comes topped with fu (wheat gluten) and four different green vegetables — negi, mizuna, mitsuba and nira. Noodles supplied by Okada Seimen, and run by master Tedori-san. For many regulars, this is the best bowl in Hakodate.
