This ramen shop is, indeed, very difficult to find if you did not have a detailed map in your hand, but it has an excellent taste.  It might be a good place to go since there isn't a queue you need to wait in. The soup here is Tonkotsu and Niboshi (pork and dried fish) based. Also if you are very keen to the trend in Japan, you should order TKG, which stands for Tamago Kake Gohan (Raw egg on rice; 200yen). It has been a small trend in Japan to search for the best TKG in Japan, and having "Tama" in the name of the restaurant, Tamgoro offers TKG. Add a little bit of soy sauce (really a little bit!!) and blend it with the rice.
Niboshi ramen for only 670yen.
