In Mitaka at lunch time? Make sure not to lose your way and head for Bunzo, located on the south side of the station. This small eatery seats less than 10 people at the counter and boasts unrelentingly long queues every day. The most popular item on the menu is the toku-ramen, complete with a double soup made from seafood and pork bones. The medium-thick noodles are mixed perfectly with the bonito broth, and once you dig in, you’ll realise how quickly this dish fills you up. Note that the restaurant closes as soon as it runs out of soup.
