Jiyoken is a long-standing ramen shop opened in 1947 in a downtown area in front of JR Hakodate station. The main menu is Hakodate Shio Ramen which keeps the same taste from its establishment. It is popular with both locals and tourists partly because of its reasonable price of 500 yen a bowl. They use homemade noodles which is rare in Hakodate. Limited amount of homemade noodles can be made in one day, so when all the noodles sell out, the shop is closed. Make sure you get there in time!

Use of healthy ingredients
The name of the shop, “Jiyo” means “nourishment.” The name embodies the shop’s concerns for ingredients. They don’t use any preservatives or additives and use only ingredients good for health. Both noodles and soups are made carefully and taste great.
Specialty: Hakodate Shio Ramen
Jiyoken is especially famous for its Hakodate Shio Ramen (500 yen). Their soup is made from pork and chicken bones, potherbs and seaweed. Its light but rich taste is so delicious that many people drink it to the last drop.
Gyoza to Go with Shio Ramen
We recommend you to taste fried gyoza (dumplings) (350 yen) along with the shop’s specialty Hakodate Shio Ramen. The dough for gyoza is also homemade at the shop as well as the ramen noodles. Its texture is chewy. The meat juice spreads in your mouth on every bite and makes you want more!
