As a big fan of ramen, I’ve tried many ways and different types of ramen. As such, Asahikawa Ramen Village is the perfect place to go for a ramen lover. The ramen here is delicious, varied and priced reasonably. Praise the ramen lords for it will be a noodly trip!

Asahikawa Ramen Village

There are a total of 8 shops at the Ramen Village, and a total of around 200 seats.

You can take your pick from Ramen Aoba, Santoka, Ittetsu-an Matsuda, Ishida, Baikoken, Tenkin, Saijo and Kobo Kato Ramen. Would recommend skipping Santoka as they are also available at many other places, instead, try a different shop which is more unique to the location such as Ramen Aoba which is famous for their shoyu ramen or Baikoken which has international fame.

If you’re not that obsessed with ramen, it’s better to skip this spot as there are also a few famous ramen places at the Kaimono Koen (Shopping Park) area near Asahikawa JR Station. If you like shopping, you can still visit this spot as there are places to shop such as Uniqlo near the Ramen Village.

Nothing much here to draw travellers besides shopping and ramen.
