February 14th, 2017

Tenkin

Ramenya Tenkin (らーめんや天金) is a long-established ramen restraunt run by Tenkin Foods corp. in Asahikawa city. Mr. Norimitsu Nobuta (信田 憲満) established it in 1952. Ms. Nanako Fujita (藤田 奈々子) is a company president at present. The Tenkin is one of the most famous ramen restraunts in the Asahikawa. Their family line also runs Izakaya and a Japanese restraunt in the Asahikawa. I guess that do not they have the head office, but has 2 branch restraunts, 4jo Branch (4条店) and Asahikawa Ramen village Branch (あさひかわラーメン村店).

My visited place is the 4jo Branch near Akita Bank Asahikawa Branch (秋田銀行 旭川支店). The relaviely new building is not so samll, and all seats are table seats, so I guess that even family customers enjoy meals. A lots of autographed cards are closely stuck on a wall, so I think that the Mizuno is also popular with celebrities.

ASAHIKAWA

Asahikawa (旭川) that about 340,000 people live is the 2nd largest commercial city in Hokkaido, and has flourished as the center of the North Hokkaido area. Woodworks have been prosperous since the old days, and furniture is famous. Because water is clear, a liquor such as sake of Otokoyama (男山) and Godo Shusei (合同酒精) are famous, too. Popular tourist attractions such as Asahiyama Zoo (旭山動物園) and Biei (美瑛) are around the Asahikawa, so a lot of tourists use tourist bases in the North Hokkaido. As for a climate, the Asahikawa is located in Kamikawa Basin, the largest basin in the Hokkaido, so it is hot that temperature rises to 30 degrees C in a summer, and it is cold that temperature falls to -25 degrees C in a winter, and it snow very hard, too. So a winter festival using the snow is famous. Article is here

Ramen of Hokkaido

Ramen is a noodle soup dish topped with ingredients. 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. In Sapporo, it is a root of Sapporo Ramen that a noodle soup dish was cooked by Mr. Wang Wen Zai (王 文彩), a chief chef of Takeya Shokudo (竹家食堂), in 1922. Houran (芳蘭), a branch of the Takeya Shokudo, opened a business in 1933 in Asahikawa. Asahikawa Ramen, Sapporo Ramen and Hakodate Ramen called the 3 Major Ramen in Hokkaido were born. But current ramen do not succeed to the taste of those ramen. Article is here

Fortunately, it was the timing that other cusotmers went home, so I could sit a table seat without waitnig. I read a menu, and ordered Soy Sauce Broth Ramen (正味ラーメン), the standard Asahikawa ramen. The price was JPY 700.

About 10 minutes later, the Soy Sauce Broth Ramen was served. Roasted pork fillets, bamboo shoots and green onions were on noodles. The ingredients were simple. Brightly shining soup used lard oil a little too much to prevent the soup from cooling down, and looked typical soup of the Asahikawa Ramen. The soup mixed pork bone broth with chicken broth was rich salty, and was very nice!
