While the settings of this restaurant is very special (eating in kind of private boxes) the soup itself was very average. Even in Europe we have better ramen restaurants (e.g. Takumi). The meat was so so, the egg we had to peel ourselves and its...More

Ichiran is simply the best. The ramen noodles are perfectly made, the seasoning is perfect and they let you customize your preferences (see photo). As other reviewers have noted, it's a unique experience of ordering from a machine, sitting in a private individual booth and...More

The line up outside the restaurant is a good indication that the food must be good, cheap, or both. In the case of the Ichiran (a chain of restaurants), it’s both. I would call it a fast food restaurant with a twist. Once inside, you...More

上野駅の名物ラーメン店で、毎日のように混雑が続きます。外国人観光客の利用も多く、日本語だけでなく中国語や英語などのメニューも取り揃えてあります。店内のほとんどはカウンター席で、1人用として仕切られており、隣とお喋りすることなく黙々とラーメンの味に集中する設計になっています(何席かはテーブル席もあります)。まとまった人数でわいわい楽しみながら食事をする、という意味ではあまり向かないレストランです。 ラーメンは、豚骨味のみの博多ラーメンで、トッピング、麺の固さ、香辛料の有無以外の選択肢はありません。食事のバラエティを求めるならば、このレストランは不向きでしょう。むしろ、博多豚骨にこだわり抜いたからこそ、内外問わずファンが多いのかもしれません。奇をてらったところは全くありませんが、安心・安定感はあります。 The restaurant is particularly famous around Ueno station, and is crowded every day. There are many foreign tourists' use, there are menus other Japanese(English and Chinese). Although there are several table seats in this restaurant, most of the seats are counters, and are...More

Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old
Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa.
Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit
a variety of different museums and galleries. At
Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the
grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed
alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at
the end of the year, when many people go on shopping
