Champon outside Nagasaki

I will be travelling to Japan in October (Tokyo, Nikko, Takayama, Shirakawa-go, Kyoto, Osaka, Kinosaki, Nara, Hikone and Hakone). I really want to try some champon when I'm in the country but I won't be going to Nagasaki on this trip. Does anyone have any recommendations for restaurants that serve champon in any of the cities/towns that I'll be visiting? Thanks!

  1. There's a chain of restaurants in Tokyo (and probably elsewhere) called Kyushu ( ), although some branches are called Kyushuhan, and they do a very nice, reliable champon as well as sara-udon.

    Somewhat less fancy is Ringer Hut, an inexpensive fast-food chain with branches nationwide, often open 24 hours a day, which also serves both dishes.

      Thanks Robb S. Kyushu/Kyushuhan is probably closer to what I'm looking for than Ringer Hut.
