Ramen Shop Hopping in Tokyo!



A must-see for ramen lovers 🍥.
Here are some of the ramen dishes we enjoyed in the northern part of Tokyo (Ohanajaya, Higashi Jujo, Asakusa)! There are ramen based on chicken white soup that you can enjoy with different tastes, and ramen based on soy sauce that is both rich and light. The fun of ramen is that the characteristics of ramen vary from restaurant to restaurant!
