The name Eni is made up of parts of the Japanese words for shrimp and crab - ebi and kani. The bowl dishes and sushi rolls a filled with the plump meat of shrimp and crab. This landmark of Tomamu is famous for the humor evident in the names of the dishes made with these ingredients such as the Unkai Ebi Tendon (Shrimp Tempura Bowl) and the Kiwami ☆ Tsufu-don that is loaded with sea urchin, salmon roe, and plump shrimp.

This is the popular Tokyo ramen shop’s first branch in Hokkaido. The ramen is noted for its thin noodles in a soup made from carefully selected domestic chicken bones and the freshest vegetables having a seafood flavor. The Yuzu Shio Ramen [citron-salt ramen] with its citron aroma is very popular and enjoyed by a broad range of customers making it a menu standard. In addition, we recommend the Ramen Kiwami, an ‘ultimate’ dish in which all of the ingredients in the soup come together deliciously; plus the Tonkotsu Ramen [Pork Bone Ramen], which is only available in Tomamu.

Sipping champagne at a bar counter under a blue sky while enjoying the scenic beauty of Tomamu is a rare experience. Be sure to try this unique experience if the opportunity presents itself.
