Famous Ramen Shops In Tokyo

What is your favorite ramen in Japan? Almost every region in Japan has its own local and special ramen, for example the Tonkotsu (pork bone broth) ramen from Kyushu and Miso (soybean paste) ramen from Hokkaido. Today, we will take you to some famous Tonkotsu ramen shops in Japan and also the biggest ramen event in Tokyo!!

01. Natural Tonkotsu Ramen Shop - Ichiran

This famous ramen shop is originally from Fukuoka. It is also the top 5 ramen shops in Japan! Before you get to your seat, staff will give you a piece of paper to choose how you would like the ramen to be cooked. From the richness of the soup, the texture of noodles to the toppings of the ramen, you can tell your preference to the shop to make you the perfect ramen just for you! (English menu is available!)

There is another special feature of Ichiran which is their seat! You can find partitions on both sides, so you can have a private space to enjoy your ramen!

Once your ramen is ready, staff will pass you the ramen from behind the curtain in front of your seat! No eye contact is needed! A very private moment!
