Genya Ramen in Fushimi

Genya Ramen in Fushimi

Cordelia Ding

Located in the bustling Fushimi district of Kyoto, at just over 400 meters or an eight-minute walk from Fushimi Momoyama Station, is the popular Ramen restaurant, Genya. This restaurant specializes in a chicken and pork broth, setting it aside from other ramen shops that use solely pork broth. The unique taste of chicken is refreshing in a bowl of ramen, as it is not very common. Another great thing about Genya is that it serves three portions - small, medium, and large - so if you are not famished, you will be able to order a small portion and still enjoy the luxury of hot noodles made fresh to order.
