It's a slightly strange experience, but worth it. You can't book in advance, at busy times expect upto a half hour queue. Order and pay at the machine whilst queuing, then fill in the form to say how you want your order. Automated system tells you when your seat is available. There are only 20 seats - little cubicles (dining... More

Found about it through tripadvisor and decided to give it a chance. At first I wasn't really enthusiast because it's really narrow and we had to wait a while, but as soon as my ramen arrived I changed my mind, it was so tasty! I can't wait to come back on my next trip to Tokyo!

This was our first experience eating real ramen and it completely spoiled us. In the the BEST way possible. While my husband and I were in Japan, this was our go-to comfort food stop. Cheap, delicious and customizable. You want extra noodles? Less red sauce? No onions? No problem. I am a bit of a picky eater, and being able... More

We love ramen and we wanted to try one of the best ramen in Tokyo. We've choosen the Ichiran in Shibuya. This was on 18/08/2016 during evening. It's true usually there is long queue but no issue with that. You should order through a vending machine which you choose the ramen and extras, etc then you pay in the same... More

This is one of the best known authentic Japanese ramen in town. The restaurant is tiny in size, holding no more than 20 people at a time. It's worth the waiting.

I love ramen and Ichiran was a wonderful experience. I visited Ichiran twice during my stay in Shinjuku and both experiences did not disappoint. I only ordered a bowl of ramen the first time which was enough to dabble in the taste. The second time I got the set with the extra serving of noodles, egg and matcha almond tofu... More

This is a great, quick and convenient place to grab Raman! It is by far THE BEST RAMAN I'VE EVER EATEN! Only complaint is that there are no tables for groups.

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.
