Most delicious ramen served in a cubicle - not a sociable way of eating. But good if all you want is to have a seriously delicious bowl of Tonkotsu ramen without interacting with anyone and then go :) you can customize the spice as well as texture of ramen n get add ons. We went at 7 am - no... More

Never heard about this ramen before since I'm in Indonesia. The place is at Shibuya, you can ask people the direction to here if you don't know how to get here (i believe they will explain to you) So i got here and there was about 10 people queue. But it didn't take a long time until we got a... More

We hardly had to queue and they provided us menus in English. It was about 780 yen for a bowl of ramen without the add ons which was pretty reasonable for price. They also allowed u to top up noodles later if required. The concept is pretty interesting for a foreigner like myself. They have a board which shows you... More

I happened upon Ichiran on a rainy January afternoon, tired from shopping and jet-lagged. The red color and the calligraphy indicated a ramen establishment so I walked down the stairs. This was an experience that you are looking for when you travel to an unfamiliar place. Ichiran is a ramen shop that consists of wooden booths for individuals. You order... More

I have always wanted to try ramen in Japan. Had a chance (transit) to venture into tokyo for a few hours and decided on a dinner at Ichiran in Shibuya (spain-zaka). This branch is actually located nearby at Koyasuwan Building. The noodle is simply delicious. The machine to select the desired ramen looks complicated at first but it took only... More

I've been in Japan about a year and a half and i have to say that this place is most definitely my new #1 ramen joint. The staff is nice, the menu is simple, and most of all the Ramen is amazing!!!

When researching ramen places to try in Tokyo, the names Ichiran and Ippudo tend to come up very often. We ended up heading to Ichiran in Shibuya towards the end of our trip to give it a try. I think the concept of your own cubicle is really interesting. If you are with a group, you can always remove the... More

As a big fan of ramen, visiting Ichiran was one of the planned visit I most looked forward to. Thanks to Maps, we were able to locate it last week. 😅 I am super satisfied with the experience. Even though there was quite a line outside because of their small space inside, I did not really mind waiting because it... 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.
