Wakayama Prefecture

Wakayama Prefecture is known for its beautiful scenery and traditional shrines. Other than that, it has clear beaches that are good for snorkeling and diving. If you are brave enough you can pay a visit to Tomogashima Island, an uninhabited island with ruins of fortresses built by the Japanese Imperial Army in the 1890s. Try to imagine the abandoned fortresses in Studio Ghibli's movie Castle in the Sky.

Ide Shoten

Ide Shoten is very well known and once appeared as the best ramen on national tv over decades ago. This shop has long queues all the time and people purposely drive all the way there even now. The light color shoyu (soy sauce) broth ramen is the most popular item in the shop. So, plan your trip for the next holiday.

Gantare | がんたれ

Gantare serves pork-based broth Chinese soba with a generous amount of pork char-siew. There are 16 seats with 8 table seats and it is a non-smoking establishment. There are parking lots available. Great ramen shop to eat with your family or co-workers.

Seino | 和 Dining 清乃

Seino's famous dish is Maru Boshi Black (丸干しブラック) at a price of 750 yen. It means dark soy-sauce based broth ramen. The restaurant does not accept 10,000 yen notes, so prepare smaller changes beforehand. Opening hours may vary depending on the branches.It is a non-smoking establishment and there are 22 seats at the main branch.  

Marusan

If you are looking for intense flavor, Marusan will be a great choice. The store serves thick tonkotsu (pork bone) based broth ramen for 600 yen. Don't be surprised if you hear people nearby ordered 中華そば (chuka soba) also known as Chinese noodles and it comes out as ramen. In Wakayama, they call that ramen chuka soba.

Ramen Marui

Are you tired of asking the cook to top up green onions for your ramen everytime? Ramen Marui serves green onions ramen for 750 yen. If you think it is too much, you can tell the cook to put lesser green onions. It is good that many resto in Japan offer options where you can mix and match, also deciding the amount of the toppings.
