Welcome to Fukuwauchi. This small restaurant is located in Jogasaki-Kaigan, Izu-Kogen. It is a small shop with a blinking sign saying ramen. It is one of the first ramen shop’s that I ate at when I came to Japan. It will always hold a special place in my heart. The shop is owned by a old couple. They are great, and always welcoming.
It’s an extremely small place. The counter seats like 8 people tops and there are one or two tables. You have your normal condiments for ramen on the table like Karashi (spicy paste) Shoyu (soy sauce), Vinegar, raiyuu (spicy oil). Anyway broth is simple, and the noodles are not fat but they are hearty. They match the shoyu broth really well. I ordered their ramen with everything in it. Fried Chicken, Chashu (Roasted Pork), A soft-boiled egg, Bean sprouts and etc. It is still one of the most filling ramens around.
The fried chicken eaten right away gives you the crispy skin but waiting a bit to eat it allows it the chicken to absorb the soup. The Chashu is great, it’s firm and flavorful. I am not such a big fan of big ramen noodles but as I continued eating the noodles it began to grow on me. I definitely recommend this place, however it is quite out of the way. It’s a shame because it’s a really good ramen shop.
If you find yourself near Jogasaki station this is a great place to eat! Cheers.
Fukuwauchi is a 4 to 5 minute walk from Jogasaki-Kaigan station.
