Among over 150 ramen shops in the city, Inotani has the greatest recognition and for a good reason: it is the birthplace of the Tokushima-style ramen. located near the ferry terminal bringing tourists to the island of Shikoku, Inotani has become a popular stop for tourists to try the local ramen, which consists of a dark soy-based broth, fried pork and a raw egg. You can dip your noodles in the egg yolk as you eat for a rich creamy taste. Inotani is a definite must-go restaurant for ramen junkies.

Ramen Todai

Ramen Todai has grown into a business with a few sister branches across Japan. The original location is in Tokushima, located a 10-minute walk from the Awa Tomida Station. It also serves Tokushima-style ramen. The basic bowl is 600 yen and you can have extra fried meat if you pay a little more. What's nice about this store is - unlike Inotani which closes at 5 PM - that it stays open until 4 AM. Many people go there for their hearty ramen bowl after a night of drinking in the city.


Head to Tatsumiya at any time of day and the restaurant will probably be full. The pork bones and soy sauce-based broth is so thick and rich that ramen junkies cannot get enough of it. You can get a set that comes with a bowl of rice and pickled daikon. It's nice to cut the soup's intense flavor with some plain rice while you eat. Not for people on a low-carb diet.

Okamoto Chuka

Okamoto Ramen gives a different twist to the Tokushima-style ramen. Their ramen has a white soup that is made from white soy sauce and pork bones. You get the same irresistible oiliness and it comes with the usual raw egg inside.


Completing this list is Nisshoku, which serves its unique type of ramen. It uses large pork bones which creates a deep taste that combines so well with the restaurant's secret tare sauce that is made from a locally-produced special soy sauce. The marinated eggs here are particularly delicious and cooked to perfection. Have the Nitamagoiri Chuka Soba for 680 yen.


The area is also known for mikan (Japanese orange) but the Tokushima ramen has also become a must-try dish when you travel to Japan's Shikoku island.

If you happen to be in Tokushima during the summer, you might want to check out their Awa Odori Festival. It's the largest one in Japan!
