えきばしゃ (Ekibasha in Hokkaido)

Train station or ramen-ya? How about both!

This station had no attendant, no ticket gate, but it had a ramen shop in the old fashioned wood building. Awesome!

There were a few things on order. One, for 1500 yen, was a "fruits of the sea" ramen. I didn't get it, but want to go back someday and try it. It contained a giant shrimp, an entire crab claw, and scallops topped with salmon roe.

Directions: Take the super slow, 3 car train and hop off.

The shop staff recommended the salt ramen topped with onion. A clean bowl for sure.

The huge mound of shredded onions melts down into the hot soup.
