The owner worked at my favourite miso ramen shop, hanamichi before. It has inherit some of it's characteristics such as thick flavourful soup.
I tried out their extra spicy miso, it's about level 7 on a scale of 10. The bean sprout has wok hey flavour, the menma doesn't have any bad flavour, char siu is on the slightly thicker side but nothing special, and the egg is big and the yolk is rich flavour. Definitely give it a try if you are interested. It's a small shop with only 9 seats so be prepared for lining up.


Very good miso ramen. It is especially a good bowl during a cold night!

Small shop so expect to queue during peak time. There was minimal queue when I went as it was 30 min before closing.

Order is as usual via vending machines. Water cups are served next to vending machines.

The bowl was definitely large and this is a comfort and hearty food. They had fried the bean sproutd and it offers a nice wok smell to the ramen. Char siu was tender, egg was excellent too.

While it may seem slightly salty at first, it really goes down well as you eat it! A lot of Japanese would get a extra bowl of rice to soak up the soup!

Last note, knew them via Try (ramen magazine) as one of a new shops for miso! If you are near ikebukero and want a nice supper during a cold night, this is definitely a good one. Opens till 9pm!


Visited for lunch at 11:30 on weekdays. Probably because of the rain, there was no line (although the store was about 80% full).
I purchased ``Ajitama Chashu Miso Ramen'' for ¥1300 and ``Rice'' for ¥150 from the ticket vending machine.
After putting the ticket on the counter and waiting, the rice bowl arrived in about 10 minutes.
The soup is a little sweet and has some back fat, and is thick but light, which is strange.
The noodles are medium thick and straight.
It would have been better if it was chijire. . .
And the large, thick char siu is very filling.
I would like to try spicy miso when I visit again.

*Counter seats only (about 9 seats)
*Staff is very responsive
