Sasebo is famous for its dishes often using flavours influenced by the United States. However, after my cruise on The Pearl I wanted something with some more authentic Japanese flavours before heading back to JR Kyushu Sasebo Station. So I headed to nearby Ago Ramen at the Saikai Pearl Sea Resort. Out of the may varieties, I opted for the agodashi ramen and its lighter broth which suits the taste of Sasebo residents. Agoramen also offers more unusual ramen such as "American" style with butter and corn. The second-floor shop has a great view over the harbour.
