About AFURI Izakaya
TOKYO TO PORTLAND
We are proud to open our first location outside of Japan. Reasons abound for us to introduce our style of ramen to the Rose City, however Portland offered us something no other US city could; soft water from a pure source within close proximity.
Much like Mt. Hood, the Afuri mountain in Japan has long been revered as a sacred place of harvest; the unique geography creates ideal spring water, perfect for ramen making.
Portland’s ecosystem produces nearly identical beautiful water to that of our Japan locations. This water quality combined with the bounty of Pacific Northwest local farms & producers, allows us to create the highest quality ramen and Japanese cuisine available.
