[Yoshino Head Office in Asahikawa] Miso Broth Ramen Topped with Large Quantity of Fried Bean Sprouts
June 25th, 2014
Miso Ramen Yoshino (みそラーメンのよし乃) is a long-established ramen chain based in Asahikawa city, and Mr. Tsutomu Urano established it in 1968. Speaking of Asahikawa Ramen, Soy Sauce Broth Ramen is famous. But the Yohsino is famous for Miso Broth Ramen as its name suggests. The head office is in Toyooka, Asahikawa, and some branch restaurants and franchise restaurants open a business in the Asahikawa, Kitami, Kamikawa and Sapporo. The head office near Asahikawa Juvenile Classification Home is well-known for forming a line.
I visited the head office around 13:00 on a weekday. A lot of customers went in and out, and restaurant staffs looked busy. It was the Miso Broth Ramen that most of customers ordered. After all, the Miso Broth Ramen was very popular. Two-storied building with an atmosphere such as the Showa period is not small, and counter seats and table seats are provided, so I guess that even family customers enjoy their meals.

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
Miso Broth Ramen
I sat a counter seat, and ordered the Miso Broth Ramen immediately. The price was JPY 750.
About 10 minutes later, the Miso Broth Ramen was served. Fried bean sprouts, bamboo shoots and green onions were on noodles. A large quantity of the fried bean sprouts caught my eyes. Soup using 4 types of Miso was salty-sweet, and was mild. They regulate the light or rich taste of the soup according to the weather and temperature. Therefore it is said that they always cook tasty ramen. The noodles made by Fujiwara Noodle Making-factory (藤原製麺) went well with the soup. Thanks for the tasty ramen!
