[Miraku Head Office in Rishiri] Fried Soy Sauce Broth Ramen with Rich Taste

Miraku

Rishiri Ramen Miraku (利尻らーめん 味楽) is a popular ramen restraunt based in Rishiri island, and is near Kustugata Port (沓形港) and Kustugata-misaki Park (沓形岬公園). Mr. Esashiya Yoshitsugu (江刺家 美次), a ramen restraunt owner, has established it since 2007. The Miraku is famous for serving ramen using Rishiri Kombu (利尻昆布) with a good reputation as the highest quality kombu. They got the Bib Gourmand in MICHELIN GUIDE Hokkaido 2012 Special Edition and 2017 Special Edition. The Miraku is well-known for very short business time from 11:30 to 14:00, and the popular ramen restraunt that is the hardest to visit in Japan is also reported in the media. The head office is in the Rishiri, and a branch opens a business in Shin-yokohama Ramen Museum (新横浜ラーメン博物館), Kanagawa prefecture.

Kustugata-misaki Park (沓形岬公園) is a park at Cape Kustugata located in the westernmost tip of Rishiri Island (利尻島), and is also a lookout point next to Kustugata port (沓形港). The park is famous for seeing beautiful rising sun and sunset. The park covered with lava rocks, Kustugata-misaki Lighthouse (沓形岬灯台), Kustugata-misaki Park Camping Ground (沓形岬公園キャンプ場), a parking lot and a public restroom are built at the site.

My visited place is the head office. The ramen restraunt on the 1st floor of a 2 story private house is not small, and visitors can feel a typical atmosphere of a good old private house in Hokkaido. Table seats and a small separate Japanese style room are provided, so I guess that even family customers may enjoy meals. But the ramen restraunt is crowded with customers, so a line is expected.

There are some means of transportation for the island tourism, for example, a sightseeing bus and a fixed-route bus managed by Soya bus (宗谷バス), a sightseeing taxi, a rental car, a rental motor scooter and a rental bicycle. I went around the Rishiri Island by the rental motor scooter, and it was very comfortable. By the way, if tourists raise their hand in the case of fixed-route bus happening to pass, they can get on the bus without a bus stop, and can get off the bus without a bus stop.

The area is 24,166 ha. It consists of 2 islands, wetlands and the coast, and beautiful nature such as the sea, mountains, wild flowers and wetlands is highlight.

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

Fried Soy Sauce Broth Ramen

I visited here at 11:30, just opening time, on a weekday. 3 groups of customers already sat at table seats, so the Miraku would open before 11:30. I took off my shoes, and sat at a tatami table, and read a menu. Fried Soy Sauce Broth Ramen (焼き醤油ラーメン) was popular and was the restraunt's recommendation, so I ordered it. The price was JPY 800.

About 10 minutes later, the ramen was served. A roasted pork fillet, bamboo shoots, bean sprouts, a dried laver and green onions were on noodles. The appearance looked like reflecting the image of Mt. Rishirifuji (利尻富士) in a winter, and a dish of Shredded Kombu (トロロ昆布) was on the house. A waitress told me "The shredded kombu is put on the ramen as you like".

I ate a sip of soup immediately. It was tasty! The soup was rich taste. They extracted soup stock from pork bone, chicken, vegetables and the Rishiri Kombu for about 17 hours. The soup was thick, but I could eat the soup more and more because it was tasty.

Egg Noodles Made by Nishiyama Making-Noodles Factory

The noodles were somewhat tough egg noodles made by Nishiyama Making-noodles Factory (西山製麺) commonly used in Sapporo Ramen. I guess that the rich soup will go well with this toughness. It is the ramen that I want rich taste ramen enthusiast to eat by all means. Thanks for the tasty ramen!

By the way, Club Tourism (クラブツーリズム), a Japanese tour travel agency, provides various types of tours such as day trip tours or ordinary tours. In the case of bus tours, tourists do not drive their cars themselves, so they can savor alcohol. Choosen tourist attractions are national parks such as Rishiri and Rebun, Shiretoko, and popular tourist places such as Furano and Biei, and some activities such as hiking and fruit picking are also enjoyed depending on seasons. If you are interested in tour trips, you should visit the club tourism's website for details.
