The Additional Order: “KAEDAMA”
“KAEDAMA” is the traditional way of refilling noodles only into your remaining soup.
1. Call the staff and ask “KAEDAMA” with your favorite noodle texture.
2. The staff will refill your ordered noodles only to your remaining soup.:idea: “KATA” is the most popular among locals.

From my point of view 🙂
“Nagahama” in Fukuoka is known as the origin of Tonkotsu Ramen in Nagahama style. It is categorized as Hakata Ramen which is the most three famous ramen in Japan. This area is located at next to the fish market so that the people working at the market come often to the ramen stalls to eat their meal. Due these people are very busy working at the market, they wanted ramen to be served in very short time. That`s way noodles need to be thin and the noodle texture to be “Kata”= Hard to save their time.
There used to be many ramen stalls in “Nagahama” area but not much more. Instead, many ramen shops are in the buildings now and I think more clean.
“Nagahama Shogun” is my favorite. It is because the spicy “KARASHI TAKANA” is there on the table. It is free of charge so you can put it as much as you like. Some ramen shops also provide “KARASHI TAKANA” but these are usually very little and not too spicy. If you like spicy, please try the “KARASHI TAKANA” at “Nagahama Shogun.” The quality is very high. You can tell the difference right away. But please be careful, it is really spicy. Enjoy!!
Thank you for reading my report 🙂
