Unbeknownst to many visitors, Kyoto is a ramen town. That’s no surprise to ramen pilgrims or the students attending the city’s 25 plus universities who rely on cheap eats like noodles and okonomiyaki (Japanese style pancakes). Fortunately, you don't have to go far to experience them: Kyoto’s main train station has an entire floor of ramen joints on the upper level called Ramen Koji (Ramen Street) serving eight regional styles of the beloved noodle soup, including Masutani, a shoyu ramen with backfat that originated in Kyoto, Osaka-style Araumadu ramen with its fragrant and herby pork bone broth, and Hokkaido based Shirakaba Sansou ramen made with two miso pastes, sesame oil, oyster sauce, and garlic.
