Taiho Ramen, a popular ramen store in Kurume, has also brought its flavors to the store with their rich and smooth broth.

The Fukushima Prefecture is best known for their Shirakawa Ramen, also as known as Tora Style. Its special feature: handmade noodles. To make the smooth texture of the noodles, they use a technique that maximizes the flavor of wheat gluten. The broth is then seasoned with soy sauce fermented with three types of native Japanese chickens.
Enjoy this exquisite combination of golden broth, Minami Satsuma chickens, Hakata Jidori chickens, Kibi black chickens, and handmade curly noodles.
Ganso Akanoren Yuchan Ramen

The owner of this ramen store has trained at ramen institution Ganso Akanoren Setchan Ramen for about 17 years. The kitchen spends two days preparing their profoundly thick signature broth stewed with lard, pork rinds, pork head, and other bones, so that it’s well-fermented and rich in flavor, making it a good match for their thin, flat noodles.
