If you're prepared for a 2km walk away from the bustle of Otaru and it's visitors, this is well worth the effort!!!!! A friendly, and super efficient Ramen eatery that you instantly know is good because the locals are eating here!!!!!

I did not go this long time dice every time busy. I went this about 11:40 weekday. Success to go to eat. Noodle is great. Soup is not so salty. Almost can drink it. Love here and try to come again in future.
