Izumi Ward is a peaceful area with the largest agricultural land area in Yokohama City. Proceeding from south to north on Kanjo Yongo, which is surrounded by vegetable fields, you will see a yellow lantern and a black sign on your right. This should be the destination this time, but the signboard says "Black Hakata Ramen Ramen Freeman".
As I head towards ... what is this! Many handwritten boards are lined up. "Everyone! Give your energy to Ora! Please! Enjoy !!!!" "Black Hakata Ramen ¥ 500" and so on. However, if you look closely at these boards, you will see a small "(c) IZMY LAND" written below. IZMYLAND ... Yes, it seems that the theme park was actually a ramen shop.
There is a parking lot on the left and a hut that looks like a store on the right, and there are many boards on the wall. For the time being, let's proceed as indicated by the "route".
When I went around the wall, I saw a stylish (feeling) bench and swing like a cafe terrace.
However, it is not a fashionable space. For example, on the bench it says "Happy Yellow Bench". It looks like just a bench, but if you sit on this bench and take a picture together, it seems that an eternal bond will be created. I looked around, but unfortunately there weren't any cute girls in the picture.
To the left is a black bench named "The Cursed Black Bench". It seems that the moment you sit down, you will be cursed by the "great power of darkness." In addition, the letter I put in is a mysterious four-dimensional post that "goes to the fourth dimension once and then returns to the third dimension together", and "Izumi" that if you wash your hands there, lucky things will happen within 7 days. There are various things, such as "No Izumi" and "Scratched Toilet" full of graffiti (?) In the back of the parking lot, all of which are named. It seems that all of these are attractions. It's fun and tiring just to read each one carefully. Hunger is at its peak. I want to eat ramen soon.
As I terrifiedly passed the black bench, there was red goodwill. It's good, it says "ramen". This is like the entrance.
After passing through the dubious goodwill, there is a ticket vending machine on your right. Already chaos! There are many letters! In addition to the "Black Hakata Ramen" on the signboard, the most popular "Kujo Negi Ramen", "Kinniku Ramen" that seems to be a muscle, and "Norinori Ramen" that you don't understand. And not only Kinnikuman but also "Jojo Ramen". There is also a "boiled egg" button in the topping corner (it seems to be a taste ball), and the material is infinitely detailed.
After wondering what to eat, I decided to consult with the clerk. I'm afraid to go up the stairs next to the ticket vending machine.
When I went up the stairs, it was really a ramen shop. Except for the fact that you are in a building that is full of handmade feelings and makes you uneasy, the atmosphere is like a ramen shop at the counter that you often see. And, Tetsujin 28-go hangs from the ceiling around the center ...?
If you look around the store, you will find manga and anime figures, stickers, etc. all over the place. Starting with the Kinnikuman figures that were being pushed by the ticket vending machines, there is also a surprise man seal, Darth Vader, and a cup of Fuchiko in the holder that holds a small piece of paper. There are always some goods on the ceiling, walls, and equipment inside the store. I used to get together so far ... I just stared at it.
Oops, I completely forgot to order ramen. After consulting with the shop owner (called His Excellency Ramen) who was making ramen while being surrounded by a lot of goods, Norinori Ramen + Mentaiko suits Mentaiko! I ordered it with the recommended butter as a topping.
Good luck ramen is "norinori ramen" because it has two kinds of seaweed on it. There may also be benefits to the shrine currently under construction. …wait a minute. What is a shrine !?
According to His Excellency, it is under construction in the space opposite the store. When I went outside and checked it, a money box was already installed. It's in the middle of a cabbage field and it's pretty surreal. It seems that you want to set up a torii gate in the summer (only planned), so don't forget to visit if you go.
When I returned to the store, the ramen was completed. What was handed over was just black ramen. Square grilled seaweed is served along the edge of the bowl, and rocky shore seaweed is in the middle of the bowl. On top of that, char siu, whole mentaiko, and butter are served.
When I started eating this black ramen, the essence appeared. Black ramen meant black soup . This is a combination of Tonkotsu soup, which is a characteristic of Hakata ramen, and "Soy sauce," which is a characteristic of "Iekei" ramen that originated in Yokohama. After all, it's like tonkotsu soy sauce.
Unexpectedly, the rich soup does not have a tonkotsu odor, and the slightly sweetness of soy sauce remains, which is delicious. Thanks to the generous amount of seaweed, you can enjoy the change in taste, and above all, it's best to put it on mentaiko luxuriously. I want you to get entwined with butter. It was a very satisfying drink.
Even so, why did you make the shop look like this ramen? When I asked His Excellency, the free ramen stance is "one of the attractions in Izmiland". It seems that he wanted to make it a "theme park" where people could return "it was fun".
All attractions are ideas of your Excellency. The store is a refurbished truck bed, and the store is filled with stories such as His Excellency's favorite Kinnikuman, Dragon Ball, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, and Demon Kakka. Many of them were brought in by regulars, and it seems that they are increasing steadily.
His Excellency's inquisitive mind is endless. When I entered the store, I was told that it was just completed, and I was wondering if this was garbage. This is also an attraction. Its name is "Mysterious delivery". His Excellency seems to like to name and give stories to structures that are nothing. What's next? It might be a good idea to look forward to it.
It takes a little courage to get in, but once you get in, you'll find fun anime goods, cast (staff), and delicious Hakata ramen. If you want to go see this article, please tell us that you've seen the food at the restaurant. You can get a service of "100 yen worth of toppings or replacement balls" (until August 31, 2014)!
In addition, if you make friends with your Excellency on Twitter (@hideakisugano) or Facebook, you will be able to receive wonderful consideration (service), introduce new attractions, and hear your pride. It is also an ant to first do a preliminary survey of your Excellency and then head to the store.
