Special Shoyu Ramen

The starting point of the Seabura Shoyu Ramen (Special Shoyu Ramen).
The Special Shoyu Ramen was perfected through research on the long-standing ramen shops of Kyoto.
It’s a ramen you could eat every day, enjoyed by both the young and old. We have created a ramen with a simple and familiar flavor.

Kujo-Leek Ramen
(Special Shoyu Kujo Negi Ramen)

Ramen with an abundance of sliced Kujo-Leek on top.
There is a limit to the number of bunches of green onion each store can get in a day so we have limited the number of servings on offer.


Ramen Kairikiya was created in June 2005 at Kitashirakawa, Kyoto.
After inheriting the Seabura Shoyu Ramen (Special Shoyu Ramen), said to be the Kyoto ramen, from a long standing ramen store, and repeatedly improving on it we have perfected the current Seabura Shoyu Ramen (Special Shoyu Ramen) which is ‘light but has a depth of flavor’.
Now we have spread out from Kyoto to Osaka and Hyogo and even further to Kanto and Tohoku. Thanks to this we have many loyal customers.
We have expanded the stores in order for all people in Japan to be able to know and taste the Kyoto Ramen.
As we have taken Kyoto Ramen to the nation we would like to share it with the world in the near future.
We are still starting out but please continue to enjoy Ramen Kairikiya.
