My first time to try Ichiran ever. We spent around 30 mins lining up for dinner at around 6pm that night. Need to spend some time to learn how to use the machine for our orders and its only in Japanese. In fact, we doubled ordered the meat as we thought it was not included in the noodle set. I... More

We had one day in Tokyo while in transit and this place came up as a must for short itineraries. I think this experience sums up Tokyo and its quirks perfectly. The place is very easy to miss but when you finally find the stairs and see a lineup, you feel relief but also dread for the wait. The wait... More

We were around Shibuya and decided why not give this one a go. Though we waited for about 1 hour to get in, it was certainly worth the wait! The broth really is unique, and we love how we can customize our own ramen. We wanted to drop by once more before we left but never had the time to.... More

Ichiran branch was open even on New Year's. Shibuya branch runs 24/7 with about 21 seating capacity. We arrived around 9am and there's already 5 people queueing before us. Waited for about 10-15min.. servers were helpful :) Place is cramped but we enjoyed our ramen!

We waited for about an hour on Saturday night but it was worth it. Great atmosphere and an unique ramen experience. Highly recommend. A very small but cosy place.

A must try for every tourist though the queue can be quite long. Tried once during our trip was sufficient as there are so many other delicious food in Japan :)

Amazing ramen. Don't be put off by the epic queues, this ramen is definitely worth the wait. We waited for about 45 mins to seat 4 people. Ramen is very reasonably priced and service is great. Will definitely come again.

We had been reliably informed that this was the ramen place to go and it did not disappoint. Expect a cue and it will like be a 20-30 minute wait. You purchase your ramen at a vending machine and add your extras there. You select how strong you want the broth and the sauce etc. then you sit at a... More

Being from California, I have never waited 1.25 hours to be seated for dinner. Approximately 25 single booth seats. If you come with a group, highly likely you will be separated from the group when seated. Ramen was good. Not sure if worth the wait though.

Our family of three ate here for lunch on the 24.12.16. There is always a queue but well worth waiting for. You order each meal via a vending type machine and then you are ushered into rows of small single booth style areas with stools. The staff take your cards and prepare the meal. And the meal was huge, fresh... 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.
