At Ramen Tsurumusha, the vibe is toned way down. The slurping of steaming ramen is set to a soundtrack of jazz, and the staff at this counter-seating only shop are studious and reserved — the ramen does the talking. The emphasis is on the stock, the noodles and the sparse accompaniments. The house ramen and wafū ramen (Japanese-style ramen) are both prepared with high-quality stock. For the house ramen, pork bones, vegetables and a whole chicken from Mount Daisen are combined to make an exquisite and lightly chicken-flavored broth.
In line with the nationwide state of emergency declared on April 16, the government is strongly requesting that residents stay at home whenever possible and refrain from visiting bars, restaurants, music venues and other public spaces.
