Very Nice Ramen!

One of the best ramen I tasted while in Japan. They only have one flavour which made those who would want to try ramen for the very first time comfortable (not confused with choices). What you are able to customize is the portion size, extra side dishes, soup thickness and noodle softness... read more

Excellent ramen and the service is a bit of an experience in Itself! Was lucky and timed it right went just before 5pm and got seated straight away but there was a substantial line when we left waiting to go in, so be prepared to wait! Like many other places you order at the vending machine you then sit in... More

This is by far the only ramen shop that allows you to customize your ramen from soup base to toppings. Though there is always a long queue, the ramen is delicious and worth the wait. Not forgetting that they have menu in English and Chinese for those who can't understand Japanese. If you haven't had enough of the ramen, they... More

Once you are sat down they will give you a piece of paper asking how would you like your ramen made. From the broth ,... More

The anticipation builds up as you get closer and closer to the ramen vending machine. You plonk in your cash and excitedly customise your order. Attempt to wait patiently as the Ichiran staff seat the hoards of hungry diners ahead of you, while the smell of tonkotsu ramen wafts through the air. The seating board decides where you get to...

The service was excellent; quick, friendly, and also non-japanese-speaker-friendly. We had to wait only about 10 minutes to be seated down although there were previously about 9 people in front of us. The taste was superb and we loved that we could customised it to our preferences. Oh, and we also recieve free water with its tab in each of... More

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.
