I was shocked at the first time, when my colleagues took me to one of Tenka-Ippin in Kanda, Tokyo, which is the fourth biggest Ramen chain restaurants in Japan. Then at the second time, this a bowl of Ramen fascinated me. Big fans all over Japan, call themselves TENICHI Addict or TENICHI Freak, with some self-deprecative humor. Here, as the... More

This is by far the best ramen I've tried in Japan, not that I've tried a lot in the country during a visit. Its a far cry from anything offered by the noted Ramen chains in Manila, far better than Ramen Nagi or Santouka or Ikkoryu. Too bad they haven't expanded to Manila. Very rich and very flavorful without causing... More

I went to two different locations of this ramen restaurant. The first time was on our own with my family. We came across it as we were walking around. I didn't really care for the thick broth which had a very strong taste (chicken and pork I think). The second time was on the recommendation of our personal tour guide.... More

Staying in City Center

Neighbourhood Profile
City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.
