Kyoto Gion Ramen Shop “Kyoto Ramen”

While exploring Kyoto Gion Street, time quickly passed. As it was going to be my last dinner in Japan, I wanted to conclude my stay with a delightful dinner. I initially attempted to visit the well-known yakitori restaurant “Mishimatei” nearby, but unfortunately, it was sold out, leaving me disappointed.

“Kyoto Ramen,” a Ramen Shop Visited in Gion, Kyoto

Since I couldn’t have the exquisite dinner I had hoped for, I decided to change my plans. I headed to Gion for a simple meal, intending to explore a bit more of Kyoto before returning to my accommodation.

The place I ended up in was a restaurant named “Kyoto Ramen,” conveniently located on Gion Street.

“Ramen I Ate in Kyoto”

Realizing that I hadn’t tried Japanese ramen during my 4-night, 5-day trip to Japan, I decided to experience it before leaving.

Kyoto Ramen was a straightforward ramen shop offering menus in Korean and English. The restaurant was of decent size, well-maintained, and provided a clean dining environment.

“A Good Place for Solo Dining”

Japan has a well-established culture of solo dining, making it perfectly normal to have a meal alone at any restaurant. Kyoto Ramen was no exception— it was a comfortable place to enjoy a solo meal. The taste was satisfactory, and the prices were reasonable.
