In my opinion this is the best ramen i've ever had! It has lot of branches in Tokyo. This ueno one is kinda crowded because located near ueno park, zoo, and museum. The place itself is kinda unique, and perfect for people who love to eat alone. It has a devider between the tables and can also be opened if... More

Ichiran is simply the best. The ramen noodles are perfectly made, the seasoning is perfect and they let you customize your preferences (see photo). As other reviewers have noted, it's a unique experience of ordering from a machine, sitting in a private individual booth and being served from behind a screen. They have four locations in Tokyo and I visited... More

After a long day at Ueno Park checking out museums my BF and I decided to get some ramen. I actually used my Yelp app to find this place! This was actually the first time I used a ramen vending machine in Japan! At first it's a little bit overwhelming to use the machine but once you use it for... More

The line up outside the restaurant is a good indication that the food must be good, cheap, or both. In the case of the Ichiran (a chain of restaurants), it’s both. I would call it a fast food restaurant with a twist. Once inside, you select the meal from a display, pay, get a ticket and wait until the pleasant... More

上野駅の名物ラーメン店で、毎日のように混雑が続きます。外国人観光客の利用も多く、日本語だけでなく中国語や英語などのメニューも取り揃えてあります。店内のほとんどはカウンター席で、1人用として仕切られており、隣とお喋りすることなく黙々とラーメンの味に集中する設計になっています(何席かはテーブル席もあります)。まとまった人数でわいわい楽しみながら食事をする、という意味ではあまり向かないレストランです。 ラーメンは、豚骨味のみの博多ラーメンで、トッピング、麺の固さ、香辛料の有無以外の選択肢はありません。食事のバラエティを求めるならば、このレストランは不向きでしょう。むしろ、博多豚骨にこだわり抜いたからこそ、内外問わずファンが多いのかもしれません。奇をてらったところは全くありませんが、安心・安定感はあります。 The restaurant is particularly famous around Ueno station, and is crowded every day. There are many foreign tourists' use, there are menus other Japanese(English and Chinese). Although there are several table seats in this restaurant, most of the seats are counters, and are partitioned for single seats. It seems to want you to concentrate silently on the taste... More

If you once like to experience how Japanese people like to eat, go there! It's impressive! First you have to queue up, because it's so popular. Then you choose you dinner and you buy your dinner tickets using a machine. After that you get seated in a tiny room (see pictures) sitting on simple chair facing a wooden wall which... More

Ate there 2 times, because the ramen is just giving you the right taste (not too heavy/mild & perfect portion). You can customise the noodle, the soup thickness, the spicy level, and other extra topping you wanted to add. Make it your way and the result is never disappointing. In Ueno the place is bigger than Shibuya, so the queuing... More

We were adviced by a Japanese waiter in a bar to go to Ichiran for their delicious ramen. And we were really amazed by their way of cooking and how customized can the ramen be ! You can choose firmness of pasta, spiciness, oil, onions, .... The service is fast and people are kind. During our 3 weeks trip in... More

The queue was Long as to all other outlets. We waited 45mins to get into the shop, the ramen is okay but not great. Price is expensive as compared to the other ramen shop as well.

Neighbourhood Profile
Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa. Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit a variety of different museums and galleries. At Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at the end of the year, when many people go on shopping sprees. The town of Asakusa, developed around Sensoji temple, has many shops selling goods and clothing from old Japan, making it a great place for souvenir hunting. It's also known for various annual festivals, and the whole district gets involved with the huge Sanja Festival in May.
