Little gem located a few minutes walk from Kudanshita station.

The place is very small and can accommodate 8-10 people max. It is simply decorated, but very functional and clean.

There is a good variety of choices including toppings and non-ramen dishes. The broth is thick and tasty!
Service is good, quick and professional.

Be ready to queue (in our case about 15min). Totally worth the queuing time. Hands down one of the best ramen shops in Tokyo.


This time, we will be talking about Kudanshita Nakaji, a ramen restaurant located in Kudanshita, Tokyo.

This ramen shop is famous for its miso ramen, and it is so popular that if you go there during lunchtime, there will be a line.
This time I went at 8pm, so I was able to enter without lining up.
The red miso ramen is highly recommended.

◎ Menu
Special red miso ramen 1,300 yen
The special one has more chashu and flavored eggs.
The red miso is rich and goes well with the noodles!
We recommend breaking the flavored eggs and letting them blend into the soup before eating!

Miso ramen is recommended this time of year as it gets colder! If you want miso ramen, go here!


I visited around 7pm on a weekday and there was no line.
The inside of the restaurant is small with about 10 seats. It is the same size as its predecessor, Dandanmen.
It takes about 5 minutes to order the red miso back fat topping and prepare the rice bowl.
The taste was not very strong, and as a miso lover myself, I could feel the sweetness, which I really liked. The back fat topping is also less than I expected, so I recommend it.
Perhaps they were keeping an eye on the store's turnover rate, as they were quick to kick people out.
However, it was delicious. Thank you for the meal.


Translated from Japanese:

This restaurant is popular for its rich miso ramen. It's been about a year and a half since it opened, but there's always a long line at lunch time. It has now become a famous store representing the Iidabashi/Kudanshita area. When I passed by the store a little before 12 o'clock, it was unusual...


Translated from Japanese:

Goodbye 2023. I thought Nakaji was indispensable for this year's farewell tour. I've eaten a lot of different kinds of abura soba over the past year, but this is the one I wanted to try again. ...


Translated from Japanese:

3 minutes walk from Kudanshita Station. 9 seats only at the counter. There were 4 customers who entered the store right after it opened at 11:00. After 15 minutes, the place was full. A restaurant that serves 3 types of miso ramen and mazesoba. There is a pleasant aroma of miso in the store. ...
