We came to Ichiran on a Thursday around 10:30am. Like many restaurants in Japan, you order from a vending machine (cash only), and get your tickets then seated. There was no line at the time so we were seated right away. Each person gets a booth then we presented our ticket to the chef behind the curtains. While we were... More

Very unassuming staircase leads down to a gem in Shubiya. We were visiting from the US and looking for the authentic Tokyo ramen noodle experience. This is it. Fantastic food and a very cozy setting. You should be very pleased with this choice.

You have to come try these noodles and the unusual dining atmosphere. Its only a short walk down from the famous Shibuya Crossing. You have to wait 30 mins down a staircase to the basement. There's a vending machine you need to order your meals from. A maitre d gives you a customization form to adjust spice level, richness of... More

Ramen Ichiran is so popular that they have so many branches all over Japan. Definitely a must try for a first timer, but sometimes the line can be crazy filled with tourists.

it's worth the wait for 30 minutes as I've tasted the best ramen soup ever! Very special ramen experience with an individual "booth" and server to serve you. The limited green tea pudding is also YUM!

The ramen doesn't fail you thou the seating is relatively cramped and its individual seating. Ordering is easy via the pictorial machine and you can to refine your choice with instruction sheets that are in Japanese, English or Mandarin. Went twice, 1st round I ordered to the standard flavoring, adding nori(seaweed), egg etc. Its priced reasonably!

Best noodles I eat in Japan for great price. Maybe need help to order, because is a machine (Kiosko). You can eat in table or private booth.

While we were traveling a friend sent us an article about this place so we hunted it down. You are asked how firm you want your noodles and how spicy you want the soup. It was delicious and a great little restaurant, one of few that could hold more than 10 people. They actually have a second floor as well.... More

Beautiful Ramen. But you have to eat in a private booth so not the most ideal place for families. We came with two children, no fuss but not relaxing either as the Ichiran experience in Shibuya concentrates on the Ramen, not the family. Tight spots...

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.
