Not much of a choice, it is basic ramen. You can pick more noodles, or more garlic, ask for more or less spicy. Bit when it comes ot is fresh and delicious! Simple acomodations in individual booths Reasonable prices.

Similar to other ramen spots you order from a machine that gives you a ticket. You sit at a private booth meant for one person in a row of other booths. The dividers between the little booths can be folded up if you are there...More

If I have to pick one ramen that you must try whilst in Japan, it's definitely Ichiran! It'd be hard to find other tonkotsu ramen that can top this. Its super tasty broth is unforgettable. I really regretted not buying the pre-packed version to take...More

Ichiran's brand is definitely not foreign to Japan's gastronomical scene-- but just as with anything else, you have to taste it to believe it! Loved that you are able to customize your ramen's firmness and your soup (how rich and spicy you want it to...More

Shinkyogoku Shopping District
Those who delight in shopping and cuisine will find
themselves at home in Shinkyogoku. Lauded and visited
by locals for its Nishiki Market, where baskets of
fragrant spices, dried fish, and just-fried foods are
piled high along the snaking streets of its enclosed
outdoor shopping spaces, Shinkyogoku is not only a hub
for fresh fare, but also for fast fashion fixes.
