You can’t possibly visit Tokyo without sampling its myriad of ramen offerings.
These days, one of my favourite go-to ramen areas is Shinatatsu Ramen (品達ラーメン麺 ) which is located outside Shinagawa station, a minute’s walk from the Takanawa exit. It is actually a “Ramen Street” or a collection of Ramen restaurants representing the creations of well-known ramen chefs throughout Japan.
There are around 11 shops in total side-by-side; mainly ramen restaurants and a few other restaurants offering other non-ramen specialties like soba, Japanese curry, cutlet, rice bowl, or tantanmen. The whole area has recently re-opened after being refurbished, so it’s the perfect space to get your ramen fix. Here is a breakdown of what you will find there:
• Shodai Keisuke初代けいすけ Black Miso ramen
• Men’ya Shō麺屋翔 Shio ramen
• Kibiきび Shoyu Ramen
• Setagayaせたが屋 Tonkotsu and Shoyu ramen
• Mōkotanmen’nakamoto蒙古タンメン中本Spicy Miso ramen
• Nantsuttei なんつッ亭 Kumamoto-style ramen
