Kyushu, Day 4: Tontoro Ramen (Kagoshima)

MARCH 7, 2020

From Beppu, we rode a shinkansen going to Kagoshima. We arrived early evening so after checking in to our Airbnb, we decided to eat dinner. It was raining so it was easy for us to decide to have Kagoshima ramen.

We went to TONTORO and ordered a small bowl of Tontoro ramen (¥830) and a plate of kurobuta steamed dumplings (¥450).

The ramen was amazing!!! We regretted not ordering the regular size… tbf, we did not expect it to be that good. I read online that the broth is made from chicken and bonito which makes the taste unique. Kagoshima is also known for kurobuta (think wagyu but for pork!) and having that inside the dumpling we ordered was heaven in a bite! The vinegar and soy sauce poured over the dumplings made it even better.

If you are in Kagoshima, this is a must-eat!
