Ramen was really good. Stock, noodle and pork were all really well done. 👍👍👍 the place is a bit tight as to be expected of a traditional ramen joint. Max siting cap of 21 pax. Queue was acceptable, waited approx 15mins around 2-3pm...shoulder period. You order via vending machine, which accepts cash in coins or notes. Vending machine in Japanese/English... More

While in Shibuya we had a late lunch at this most popular ramen place per Tripadvisor. It is located down steep stairs in a dark basement. We placed our orders using the machine. After seated in a private stall with wooden partitions we filled out more forms to customize our noodles like oil level, soup thickness, noodle firmness, etc. Frankly... More

My first experience with ramen was not very good, so I was hesitant to try this, but I was so happy this experience exceeded all my hopes and expectations. You order at a vending machine, not many options, but when you only do one thing and you do it VERY well, you don't need more options. It's small, the queue... More

We came to this ramen place after reading all the review from TA and yelp. I was a bit hard to find since it located on the basement floor. Upon entering this restaurant it was very dark and lovely. The process of getting your ramen was very unique and mysterious at the same time. Right after you enter the door... More

Best ramen I've personally ever had. Weird and fun experience - order from a machine, wait in line, seat at personal stalls. We LOVED every second of it. Ramen was excellent (with extra toppings, a beer and extra pork!). Would have ordered slightly spicier if I went back again...which I am hoping one day I will get to!! 😍

So this restaurant is abit different to most. You que up, order your food at a kiosk were you insert your money then push the button for which food you... More

I ate here in my trip to tokyo. The place is small and you have to wait in the line, but the ramen is worth the wait. Also you can personalize your order which helps having your ramen as you like the most.

The noodles is great, the meat is delicious, the soup is fantastic. This is my first time eating a genuine ramen in Japan and so far it's the most delicious ramen that I ever had.

We were in shibuya and we decided to go to ichiran. Alike many restourants where you chose from a machine is a cash only restaurant (we were veeeery low on cash eheh), but we managed! In this place you order from a machine where english and images are available, so it's all simple! We ordered ramen and the food was... 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.
