Shinkaen first opened in Kamaishi in 1951 after moving from Sendai. The store relocated twice within Kamaishi, before opening in their current location in 1976. There are an additional two stores within the city bearing the Shinkaen name, all under the same family management, with younger business owners all undergoing training from the older generations before going independent. Shinkaen is well-loved by the locals as one of the original makers of Kamaishi Ramen, and with Taiwanese family heritage, the restaurant also serves delicious and highly popular Chinese style cuisine.
Shinkaen Instant Ramen was sold country-wide by Myojo Foods Co. in February 2015
Open for business thanks to everyone’s support. With a distinctive flavor that has been preserved for generations, we are doing our best to help Kamaishi’s recovery. We look forward to welcoming you instore.
