Unique place

A lot of waiting time but a very unique experience. Try the regular version of noodles or order extra pork and garlic for a more rich flavour

After getting into the shop, select your noodle from the machine and pay for it, check the seat map and go to the empty seat. Don't be shocked by the Japanese form as you can ask for an English form to select how you want the noodle to be prepared. This is easily one of the best Ramen I have... More

It is a special experience to eat at this restaurant. We liked the noodles so much that we returned a few days later. very good value for money. Near the famous crossing at Shibuya. There was some waiting to get in, understandable. We were there with 3 children (teenagers) and they also considered it quite fun.

I have had ramen at this restaurant (and this branch) three times already. The place is easily accessed, just about 5-10 minutes walk from JR Shibuya station. The ramen shop itself is located on the basement which, in my opinion, is quite small. It might be a bit difficult for tourists to find this restaurant if you can't read Japanese... More

Extremely tasty noodles, and one of the best in Tokyo. Choose everything, your broth, richness, thickness, spiciness, garlic, and so fourth. Foreigner friendly. And solo friendly. Order your ticket from the machine, sit down at you private eating nook, press the button, slide the ticket through, fill-out your form, and wait for a pair of hands to serve you a... More

What can I say.. this place is great and one of my favorites for a great bowl of ramen. It was fun to experience the vending machine ramen restaurant with the little cubicle booths. It was nice that they had an English menu so you can customize your ramen bowl to your liking and had the extra toppings to choose... More

i have tasted a lot of ramen in japan and i would say that this is really good! and the dining experience itself made it even better. quite unique actually, you get to place your order on a vendo machine, sit down on your own space with dividers and a window where your ramen will be served. after they serve...

There was quite a line but I absolutely loved this place. It had little booths you could sit at and eat delicious ramen! The service was fairly good as they even offer english menus!

One of my favorite ramen places. I've dined here on several occasions. If I have friends visiting the area, I'll bring them here to try the ramen. For my friends, ordering from the vending machine and customizing their ramen order was a cool, quirky experience. Ask for the English menu to customize your ramen order. There is one tiny room...

Before leaving for Japan, I did copious amounts of research on ramen places. While Ichiran is a chain, it seemed like it would be an authentic experience so we went for it! My husband ordered the tonkatsu ramen and he said that while it was heavy, it was delicious! We blogged about the experience here: http://whatsfordinneresq.com/2015/03/26/japan-travel-guide-part-iii/

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.
