Hyogo's Best Ramen: Nagomi

Nagomi in Mukogawa serves Hyogo's top ramen

 By Charlotte Griffiths   Nov 5, 2014

In eastern Nishinomiya between Kobe and Osaka, Mukogawa boasts an unusual train station, with platforms directly above a river. But that's not the only reason to visit, oh no...

Nagomi (和海 in Japanese) has been ranked the best ramen shop in Hyogo for the last three years, a title I think they deserve. Open for lunch (12:00-13:30) and dinner (18:00-20:00) from Tuesday to Saturday, there's always a queue, but justifiably so: their ramen (around ¥990) is the best. The noodles are cooked to perfection, the meat literally melts on the tongue, the onions have a sharp bite to them and the broth - oh the broth! - is ambrosia...

All self-respecting ramen lovers must visit. From the Hanshin line station's east exit, walk straight down the slope for about six minutes. Nagomi is on the right next to a car park, a humble establishment, where taste is everything.
