We read the comments and therefore tried the restaurant ourselves. The ramen were the best we tasted since the beginning of our trip. If you are hungry, pay the addition to a large soup or order more dumplings, they are also incredible.

Good quality ramen in the local style using black pork, also good gyoza. Note that you can either sit at the counter, or at tables which are all Japanese style (kneeling tables). The place is known and gets full quite quickly.

Hard to find but really really good food! As there was no english signing out front, we nearly gave up and went somewhere else. The tontoro ramen was so tasty and reasonably priced. We also had the gyoza which was also good.
