Story & Recommendation
Quintessential Seabura Shoyu Ramen, a Symbol of Kyoto
The Kairikiya - Shijo Karasuma store is a shop located just a minute walk from Karasuma Station on the Hankyu Dentetsu railway line. Among ramen shops in Kyoto, Kairikiya is known as a long-standing, successful shop with over 60 locations nationwide and six shops in operation just in Kyoto, making it one of Japan’s leading ramen chain stores. Kairikiya’s flagship menu item is “Seabura Shoyu Ramen”, set off by its transparent torigara soy sauce (chicken-based soy sauce) soup and the seabura (fat from the back of pork) that floats in the soup. “Seabura Shoyu Ramen” is a type of ramen with seabura in a soy sauce-based soup that is so close to the hearts of locals and it is said to be synonymous with Kyoto ramen. Naturally, Seabura Shoyu Ramen is served at numerous shops in Kyoto. Among them, Kairikiya is the one ramen shop that boasts top-of-the-line notoriety and unwaning popularity. Kairikiya’s Seabura Shoyu Ramen was crafted through the constant, unrelenting refinements of the owner who was born into a legendary soy sauce-making family in Kyoto, and he was devoted to picking out only the very finest soy sauces. Kairikiya is constantly buzzing with activity and its staff consistently provide cheerful, lively service. The interior is bright and clean, creating an inviting atmosphere even for first-timers. Although Kairikiya’s clientele are primarily men — mainly businessmen and students —, it is also an ideal stop for those visiting with family as seats are plentiful and guests rarely have to wait a long time to get in.
