[Jiyoken in Hakodate] Tasty Salt Broth Ramen with Light Taste for JPY 500

Jiyoken

Jiyoken (滋養軒) is a long-established ramen restraunt founded in 1947 in Hakodate city, and is near Hakodate Station. It is well-known as one of the best ramen restraunts to serve Salt Broth Ramen in the Hakodate, and is also famous for seving one coin ramen of JPY 500, and a line is formed in busy time. The ramen restraunt on the 1st floor of a 2 story building at a part of an entertainment district has an atomosphere such as a typical Japanese good old ramen restraunt, and is not large. Counter seats and table seats are provided, so I guess that even family customers may enjoy meals. But the ramen restraunt is crowded with customers at lunchtime.

    HAKODATE

    Hakodate (函館) that about 260,000 people live is the 3rd largest port city in Hokkaido, and is a regional hub city of the Southern Hokkaido area. The Hakodate became incorporated with Toi town (戸井), Esan town (恵山), Todohokke village (椴法華) and Minami-kayabe town (南茅部) in 2004, and most of Kameda Peninsula (亀田半島) has changed to the Hakodate. It is one of most popular tourist cities in the Hokkaido, and about 5 million people visit here. The downtown of the Hakodate from Mt. Hakodate toward former Goryokaku fort is developed on a large sandbar between the seas, and a unique seashore landscape is very popular. Although a lot of tourists think the center town of the Hakodate is around Hakodate Station and the Mt. Hakodate, it is around Hakodate Streetcar Goryokaku Koen-mae Stop (函館市電五稜郭公園前駅). The Hakodate is also well-known as a city with a lot of slopes, and there are 19 slopes with its name such as Hachiman-zaka slope (八幡坂), Daisan-zaka slope (大三坂) and Motoi-zaka slope (基坂), so around the Mt. Hakodate has a lot of slope lands, and the Hakodate has a lot of narrow roads. As for a climate, the Hakodate is wamer than other cities in the Hokkaido because it is located of the Southern Hokkaido, and it does not snow hard. Read More

    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. Read More

    Salt Broth Ramen

    I visited here to eat the Salt Broth Ramen around 11:30, just opening hour, on a weekday. I was the first customer on that day. I sat a counter seat, and ordered the Salt Broth Ramen. The price was JPY 500. The consumer prices significantly increase in Japan, so I am glad that the price of the ramen is JPY 500.

    About 5 minutes later, the ramen was served. Roasted pork fillets, bamboo shoots and green onions were on noodles. Ingredient was simple, so clear soup looked beautiful. In my opinion, I wonder that they dish up the simple ingredient in order to make the soup play the principal role in the ramen.

    I ate a sip of the soup immediately. This was tasty! The taste was light, but it had a good flavor. I felt like the good flavor wrapped salt, and I did not feel too salty. So I ate the soup very much. The chewy noodles were homemade straight noodles, and went well with the soup. Finally I ate up everything. Thanks for the tasty ramen!
