Waiting and being confused in the narrow area leading up to being seated was all worth it. The first sip I took of the broth was amazing - the rich flavor really strikes you. You can customize spice level, oil levels, as well as add condiments such as pork and egg to the ramen. It's nicknamed the "test style" ramen,... More

We heard alot about Ichiran from our friends before coming to Tokyo and it didnt disappoint us!! There was a queue when we reached but it moved at a decent pace. The ramen broth was delicious and had us slurping away. The ramen itself was chewy and the chashu tender. The price is also very affordable and is a great... More

We heard about this ramen joint from a friend. We were surprised to see that it was a hole in the wall. The place is small and located at the basement of a building. You order and pay through a vendo machine and a receptionist takes you to your "cubby hole." The ramen was very tasty and I would have... More

Went to Ichiran Shinjuku branch which had a short line at around 7:30pm and ordered the rich broth....The first sip will strike you as amazingly different and rich. At 790yen per basic bowl, its one of the most affordable meal in town....get the extra sea weed and extra slices of pork....very good. Skip the egg, its soft boiled and not... More

This is the only ramen place I went to that actually had someone approach me asking if I wanted an english menu. The food was delicious. The service was excellent. It is an experience you will not forget. Try to go around 11:20 (right before it gets backed) and you will see Japanese culture like you never have before. It's... More

Great for a cheap and easy meal. Not much variety (it's more or less just customised versions of the one ramen dish) but it was easily the best ramen I had in Tokyo (doesn't have a fishy/miso background flavor). Don't come here to socialise or with a big group, there's just no point. It's much more suited to singles and... More

An interesting semi-self-serve experience If you cannot read Japanese, this place is pretty hard to find but absolutely worth the hunt in the busy district of Shibuya. Look at the symbol and commit it to memory while you aimlessly wander and appreciate the foreign surroundings. When you find it, you’ll have to walk down a few steps and walk through... More

Absolutely loved the customisation system for ordering ramen. I love how you order from a vending machine and then can customise your own ramen. it was a fantastic experience.

I loved this place the ramen is sooo good and you customise it to exactaly how you want it (spicy, firm noodles, etc) the broth, noodles, pork were all excellent and I like the anti-social booths as its great for when you want lunch or dinner on your own or a quick meal and cannot be bothered to deal with...

Staying in Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu

Neighborhood Profile
Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast, Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool. At the Museum of Yebisu Beer you can learn about the beer that was responsible for the town’s name, and enjoy dining at the popular noodle shops in the surrounding area.
