Tonkotsu originates from Kyushu, Japan - the traditional Tonkotsu Ramen from Igarashi is most famous in that region. The literal translation of Tonkotsu is "pork bones" - for the broth, the bones are boiled in water for hours! This results in the creamy broth with intense pork flavor, which is additionally optimized with spices and other ingredients.
