Ajisen Ramen's Story
In 1968, out of love and caring for his daughter, Ajisen’s founder Mr. Takaharu Shigemitsu started a ramen restaurant with only 8 seats in Kumamoto Prefecture, Kyushu, Japan. Hoping to share this delicious and rich “pork bone broth ramen” with thousands of people, he named it "Ajisen Ramen".
In 1996, Ajisen Ramen opened its first restaurant in Hong Kong, pioneering Japanese-style ramen in China. In 2007, Ajisen (China) Holdings Ltd. was listed on the Main Board of The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited (the "Stock Exchange") (No. 0538.HK), our expansion effort was revitalised with a fresh injection of substantial capital.
With more than 50 years of ingenuity and inheritance, Ajisen Ramen has more than 800 branches worldwide and sells around 70 million servings of bone broth ramen a year.
Apart from developing the flagship brand "Ajisen Ramen" regionally and internationally, we have also introduced more than seven Japanese F&B brands in Hong Kong. They offer a wealth of gastronomic delights, including one-star Michelin ramen, izakaya, beverages and more.
