Our ramen restaurant, "Musoshin" is located at "Gion", the most traditional area in Kyoto city. Near Musoshin, there is a "Kaburen-jo" which is a kind of dance studio and stage for "Maiko"(apprentice geisha). So some Maiko often come to eat ramen to Musoshin. There were many foreign travelers who fell under the spell of the tasty ramen soup of Musoshin, and it became popular for them. If you come to Musoshin to eat our ramen, and if you like it, we will let you know how to make it!! Ramen is one of representative Japanese food. We are really happy if you spread our tasty ramen all over your country. Why don't you try it? We give you a big welcome!!

The recommended choice has only 6 seaters and it was full. Waiting outside in the cold was not an option. My SIL was great as he wonder around and found Musoshin. This is a larger ramen place with at least 12 seats. Selection and buying...More
I love these low-fi places. This one is even better because it's a 'pay at the machine' as you go in the door ramen joint. I got the black sesame pork ramen, absolutely delish, thick, warming, and pretty much as good a bowl of black...More
Found this place on Google as it was closest to our hotel (Kyoto Granbell Hotel). Ordering done through a ticket machine, fast service, and delicious ramen. My husband had the black sesame ramen and loved it. We also ordered the chicken karaage, which was just...More
Though I haven't had much experience with good ramen being only been in Japan twice, I can tell the black ramen here is something special. The soup is quite different as it uses black sesame seeds as the base. The noodle was quite filling and...More
First night arriving in Kyoto, got to hotel, walked around looking for something to eat. Sign says "come in, we're open", walked inside, only one customer at the counter. Asked the guy are you still open, he said yes, but we close in 30 minutes....More
If you come to Japan the first time, you have to taste ramen. This small ramen shop in Gion is a good place for a first. The broth is thick and spicy, and sticks to the tender noodles. Topped of with onion, veggies and chicken,...More
This is a great place for lunch after a visit to the Kennin-ji temple. You study the menu outside the restaurant and order/pay at a vending machine just inside the door—you then present your tickets to a staff member, and take a seat. The food...More
Gion is Kyoto's famed Geisha District (called "Geiko" in Kyoto). Though Gion's many tea houses and entertainment restaurants are closed to foreigners, Geiko and Maiko in their traditional makeup with gilded hair in full kimono can be seen drifting the streets on their way to and from work, where they fan dance, sing, and play instruments for customers. Gion lights up at night, when the ancient-looking streets
glow with lanterns along the river, where weeping willows catch the starlight and the air is warmed with conversation. Groups pass through to populate the restaurants and bars along the riverfront, but Gion still manages to be a mostly quiet district, due in large part to limited automotive traffic through many of its streets. Gion is a wonderful place to indulge in Kyoto's local and customary cuisines, and is best enjoyed after dark.
