A single-storied house with an atmosphere such as the Showa period is not large, but counter seats and table seats are provided, so I guess that even family customers enjoy meals. I visited here around 13:30 on a weekday, the house was built at residential area, and a lot of people gathered only around the ramen restaurant.

It is said that Chinese noodles is the root of the ramen, and there are various theories, for example, Mr. Mistukuni Tokugawa (徳川光圀 * Mitokomon (水戸黄門)) ate the ramen in 1697 for the first time in Japan or the first ramen was that Keitaimen noodles (経帯麺) served in 1488 was written in Biryueken Diary (蔭涼軒日録). Noodle soup dishes were spread out in Japan because Nanking noodles (南京そば) was served in various China Towns, Japan. In Hakodate with a China Town, Yowaken (養和軒) served the Nanking noodles in 1884.

A lot of preceding customers waited for their turns, so I asked a waitress, then she replied me "I guess that your turn comes for about 20 minutes". A waitress call a customer on the telephone if customers write their names and mobile phone numbers. Therefore I decided to finish an order and wait at my car. After asking her about restraunt's recommendation, she replied me "Miso Broth Butter Ramen (味噌バターラーメン)". I ordered it, and returned to my car. The price was JPY 900. While I was waiting in my car, visitors came one after another. Some overseas visitors came, too.

About 15 minutes later, my name was called by the waitress, and I sat at a counter seat. About 5 minutes later, the Miso Broth Butter Ramen was served. A roasted pork fillet, bamboo shoots, green onions, fried bean sprouts, ground pork and a butter were on noodles. There was much quantity. The noodles made by Asahikawa Making-Noodle Factory (旭川製麺) had a chewy texture. I supposed that the thickness of the roasted pork fillet was about 7 mm.

When I had soup immediately, spicy salty-sweet taste spreaded over in my mouth. It tasted salty, but I felt sweetness such as an apple. The rich taste increased still more when I melted the butter into the soup. I drank up the soup after all. Then a present owner said "Thank you for eating up". This ramen restaurant had a hospitality. By the way, they prepared for closing the restraunt because the soup of the ramen ran out while I was eating. I was glad that I ate the miso butter ramen in time.
