The sake and rice Agosuke, an izakaya located in Joetsu City, Niigata Prefecture, has developed a unique Champon ramen using kimchi bean paste with wild herbs and started selling it as a lunch menu on May 27, 2020.

Eight kinds of vegetables such as locally produced cabbage are used as ingredients. Furthermore, it is said that immunity is enhanced by adding home-made medicinal oil to the finish.


Regarding the opportunity for development, the owner, Mr. Tsukioka, said, “I wanted to make a ramen that would be healthy and healthy throughout lunch. I want you to eat Champon and make a body that can withstand the new coronavirus.”
