Shin Koiwa which is located not far from central Tokyo is where you’ll find Itto, a famous ramen place that is crowded with customers on a daily basis. Be patient enough for your turn to be seated as their ramen is to die for and is definitely worth the wait. Their handmade noodles are some of Japan’s best and their soup is lighter than the usual tonkotsu gyokai but its flavourful serving leaves you wanting for more.

Serving two kinds of soup – niboshi style and chukasoba style, Shibata is a popular place often featured in different Tokyo travel guides and a favourite among ramen critics. Although it is in a slightly inconvenient location (about 30 minutes from Shinjuku) compared to those which are lined up in bustling Tokyo streets, Shibata’s ramen that features both chicken and duck gives it a delicious twist to the usual ingredient used in this Japanese food.
