Down a few shops from Rokurinsha is Ikaruga, another famous shop from Kudanshita. The queue is fortunately shorter and turn over rate of tables are pretty high.The best-selling ramen is 特製らー麺 980yen , a deep bowl of noodles in tonkatsu broth blended with bonito and konbu.

Rich soup, succulent pork, springy noodles, tasty tamago. There's nothing I didn't like. I've been twice now, and will be going back more often.

We decided to try this ramen restaurant because it was really close to our hotel and we were looking for a simple meal. We also noted the relatively high TripAdvisor ratings from other reviewers, all of which were written in Japanese. We attempted to decipher those reviews using Google translator, and got hilarious results. I offer this review in part... More

Neighborhood Profile
Yotsuya / Iidabashi
Yotsuya and Iidabashi are areas that developed around the outer moat of the Imperial palace. Nearby in Kagurazaka, there is an old red-light district with a photogenic feel evocative of the ambiance of old Tokyo. Narrow paths with stone paving remain to this day, and there are long-standing restaurants with geishas and quaint old cafes in townhouse buildings.
