Koyama Ramen Shop visit

This evening my friends and I ventured to Sobudai-mae for dinner at the Koyama family ramen shop. Not only was the food great, but everyone was really friendly even before they discovered we were News and Koyama fans. So this is a brief report and some pics about our evening.


It was quite a memorable evening ...Collapse )

Wow, I am so jealous of you to have such a close encounter with Koya-mama! Uwah! I want to go so bad, I will definitely go there when I visit Japan though, definitely! thanks for sharing! I wondered about the look of the inside! I bet they get a lot of News fans huh? :)

Meh, I miss her. Need to stop in on her next time I have the chance. ^.^ She really is a kind woman.

TT___TT Ahhhh~ I'm so so soooo jealous of you. I totally wish I could have gone to Koyama's family's ramen shop when I was in Japan in June!! I didn't know the address, though, and I was with a big group of people, so there was no way I could have really ventured out and gone there. Maybe next time. :)

Did you like Hakone? I also went there in June for a day. It was so green and beautiful up there in the mountains, and the onsen was SO relaxing. ^^ I also stayed at Shinagawa in Tokyo, at Shinagawa Prince Hotel. It was so nice, I'd totally stay at that hotel again.

Haha, oh gosh...that's so sweet how his family decorated their restaurant with NEWS posters!! :D They must be so supportive of him. ^^

I'm so hungry now. The gyoza looks amazing...

Anyway, thanks for sharing this - what a cool experience!! Koyama's mother sounds like such a sweetheart ♥

Enjoy the concert in Fukui *more jealousy pangs* xD;;

P.S. Could you perhaps direct me to a webpage that has more exact directions on how to get to the ramen shop?? If you know of one, that is. I would be eternally grateful. ^^

Very sweet experience inala ^^

I'm 100% sure that Koyamama will tell him about you guys when he comes back home, LOL.

i'll be going there this week and u really make me feel confident to go there cos i'll be on my own there.

so Koyamama speaks English?? Cos i dun really speaks Japanese, but i will be bringing some notes so that i could converse with her in Japanese as well.

Was the place crowded? what time did u go? and how long did u have to wait in line(i heard there'll be queues sometimes)

u make us international fans proud.. :D

thanks so much for the info...

She doesn't speak very much English, not enough for a conversation. She was asking us questions mostly in Japanese (and we only have basic skills). We were lucky that the others there had better English to help us all out.

We arrived at about 7.20pm and there were no queues at all. There were only about 3 people inside and maybe we were just lucky that it wasn't busy so everyone wasn't more rushed. So it was all quite relaxed, though I imagine if it's busy it would be a totally different situation.

everything I've heard about Koyama's mother is really nice ^^

i'm TOTALLY going there...even if I'm all the way in Osaka!!!!! (because I might end up in Osaka with my study aborad program...)
Oct. 27th, 2008 11:28 pm (UTC)
wow that sounds awesome! koyama's mom sounds so nice :)
i have a random question... is there a menu in english? or is it entirely in japanese? i want to go to koyama's ramen shop but i'm afraid i won't know how to order. lol
Oct. 27th, 2008 11:31 pm (UTC)
Yes, there are english menus, if you click on the picture in my post and enlarge it, that is the english menu, or at least one side of it. You can just point and say the number and they'll refer to things by number to you as well. Not hard at all, and everyone was really friendly.

Oh that sounds so cool! I'm most likely heading over to Japan sometime next year and I might stop by there but that all sounded like such an awesome experience. You just might get a shout out at the concert! lol
