This ramen shop is located along Kasuga-dori at Yushima subway station, and takes pride in its 'Uetori soba' (¥850). The soup, prepared by the owner who spent 20 years studying Japanese cooking, is made from seafood and chicken necks, producing a taste so incredibly refined and delicate that you'll want to drink it up to the last drop. The 'Shoyu tsukemen' (¥780), featuring thin, homemade noodles that have been left to ferment for two days, is also a delight, particularly due to the combination of yuzu citrus and niboshi sardines. The long-beloved taste of this shop has kept its muster despite the proliferation of niboshi-focused shops during the craze of 2013.
