If you’re looking for a Hakata-style ramen chain that hits the spot, head to Yamachan in Ginza. This no-frills noodle joint is a popular late-night slurp spot for Fukuoka natives and boasts a high-tech touchscreen vending machine at the front of the shop (English explanation available). For just ¥700 you can get the ‘Nagahama Ramen’, with its generous sprinkling of green onions, char siu and Hakata’s signature thin noodles in a creamy tonkotsu (pork-based) broth. On the counter you’ll find julienned gari ginger and pickled takana mustard leaves to add a spicy kick. Simply stir it all in and enjoy.
