After a long day of wandering, we were famished. We decided we had to eat before wandering around Shibuya. We saw a line of people just across the Shibuya crossing (after having gotten off the train) into the ramen shop. We had no idea where...More

This is hands down the best ramen I have ever had! When I first got to the restaurant and saw the line I was slightly hesitant but the line moved quick and the food was definitely worth the rate. Next time I am in japan...More

We stumbled across this ramen restaurant in Shibuya. We were told there would be a 40 minute wait but there was another restaurant a 5 minute walk away which had no wait so we walked to the other one. You choose your order from a...More

Was lucky enough to get in without a line on a late afternoon. Husband and I loved the ramen. I recommend going for strong stock and rich for the richness, medium spicy and firm noodles. I miss it already!

Truley delicious.. After trying out multiple places for ramen, this ranks by far the best. Alyhough its a chain, it is definitely worth a visit. There are a number of locations and they are generally associated with a que that extends out to the street....More

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.
