Stroll down the shopping arcade on the east side of Gakugei-Daigaku Station and you'll soon find this unpretentious noodle shop famed for its shoyu ramen (¥750), served in a sweet, chicken-based soup seasoned with konbu seaweed. This masterful concoction, made with branded bird from Tottori and Shizuoka's Gotenba, practically demands to be paired with high-quality noodles, and Bigiya's whole-wheat, medium-thick offerings fit the bill. And as if all that wasn't enough, they even stock two different kinds of both chashu and menma – not that we could really tell the difference.
