Taste of Ichiryu Hakata Nakasu food stand Ramen

Ichiryu has been reported by various media and guidebooks as the most famous food stand ramen in Japan. The restaurant was featured on the television program


In 1974, Ichiryu became the first ramen stand among the food stands along the Naka River in the Nakasu area of Hakata (Kyushu). The head restaurant was later moved to Kawabata Shopping Street in Nakasu, where it has received passionate support from the local ramen enthusiasts over the years, and in recent years, customers from across Japan and overseas have come to seek the taste of Ichiryu. Following franchising by Triangle. Co., Ltd., and now Garden Co., Ltd., we have realized a licensing package for franchisees. Ichiryu is the only ramen restaurant that started as a food stand in Nakasu to expand nation-wide. While maintaining the same taste for 60 years, we have succeeded in reducing the cost of ingredients and improving store operations through trial and error. While maintaining tradition, the company continues to evolve in response to the times.
