Opened in September 2013 at three minutes' walking distance from JR Higashi-Koganei Station, this shop has slowly but surely built up a noteworthy following. The basics on the menu are shoyu ramen (¥670 and up) and shio ramen (also ¥670 and up). These dishes combine wavy noodles and a seafood-based soup with added meat and shiitake mushrooms, and also include basic toppings like thin menma bamboo shoots and chashu pork for a good balance of fatty and meaty flavours. You can also add a deliciously gooey soft-boiled egg. The product here achieves such a high level of perfection that it's no exaggeration to call Kujira the best representative of the chintan (clear soup) trend in the city. The limited-time menu is also under active development, so there's something different to look forward to each time you visit.
