Trying Takayama Ramen + Hida Beef in Takayama, Japan

Join us in Japan for this food episode as we sample Takayama Ramen with Hida Beef slices for the first time along with another bowl of Ramen with typical pork slices. It was another rainy day in Takayama, so instead of going sightseeing, we decided to base our day around food and more specifically bowls of Japanese ramen. Some of you may be wondering why another bowl of ramen? Haven’t you covered in that Osaka and Tokyo thoroughly? Well, the answer is that ramen in Japan varies by region we wanted to see what Takayama ramen is all about.

The Takayama noodles came in a dark broth with chives, scallions, seaweed and a slice of pork. The Hida beef noodles featured exactly the same ingredients aside from swapping out the slice of pork for four slices of Hida beef and a price tag to match. We found the noodles thicker and curlier than previous ramen experiences. The broth also had more of a miso paste taste. Comparing the two bowls of ramen the Hida beef reigned supreme. If you have a chance to try Hida beef in Takayama you should not pass it up.

Overall, it was an excellent meal and we’d highly recommend this place. In terms of price point. Audrey paid 690 Yen for her bowl of Takayama ramen and my bowl of Hida Beef Ramen came to 1400 Yen for the Hida beef. It was over double the price for my bowl versus hers but it is still worth trying though for approximately $19-20 USD for the two bowls of ramen in Takayama, Japan.

Trying Takayama Ramen + Hida Beef in Takayama, Japan:

Hey guys! We are Samuel and Audrey, a vlogging travel couple from Canada. In this travel channel we share our travel and food vlogs while touring the world. Our most recent trip was to Japan where we spent 2 months traveling around the country and visiting the following destinations: Osaka, Tokyo, Kyoto, Nara, Nikko, Takayama, Yokohama, Odaiba, Shirakawa-gō and Takao.

During our stay, we visited a mixture of big cities and small rural towns, where we enjoyed eating Japanese street food, trying traditional Japanese cuisine, visiting local attractions and staying in unique accommodations (such as capsule hotels and ryokans) that we are now going to share with you on this channel. The combination and contrast of visiting futuristic cities and traditional countryside areas is what makes travel to Japan so fascinating. Ultra modern versus traditional. This is the essence of Japan.

Our trip to Japan was unforgettable and until now it is one of our favorite countries that we have come to know. However, we only feel as though we just scratched the surface on this trip to Japan. If you want to see more videos from Japan in the future, let us know in the comments that places you’d like us to travel to and food experiences you would like to see on this travel channel.
