The line is pretty full as always with those kind of shop, but it's worth it especially the crab tsukemen. Be warned though, it's quite heavy, so you might not want take double/triple noodle if you don't feel like it


Perfect match


It was very crowded. We had to wait in line for around 1 hour until we got seated. Was it worth the wait? I don't think so. The ramen (the dish is supposed to be tsukemen) is unique as they have two broths, one is crab-based and the other is pineapple-based soup. Both of them tasted great, but not to a big extend. Worth a try if you have time to spare.


The line is long so expect to be waiting. But! There is a reason for that as the tsukemen is delicious.
Only two options, I always got the tonkotsu and it's the best tsukemen I had in Japan.
I probably shouldn't have had this tsukemen as my first because every other tsukemen in Japan never lived up to this one.
