Located in Shinjuku Golden-gai, a ramen shop found on 2004, is the most popular ramen shop around. Specializing in dried fish based soup, they have extracted the soup in very concentrated and rich in taste that they had to warn their customer not to eat if they don't like dried fish. You will know by the first sip it's richness and fondness of the flavor. The charshu (boiled pork) is thick and juicy adding an accent to to the ramen.

The restaurant is small, only 10 counter seats, and located on the 2nd floor on a steep stairs which you won't be able to pass by each other. So in case the restaurant is full, you need to wait outside for the ramen.

    We stopped by at this ramen shop on the way back from Golden Gai. They say it's one of the best local ramen shops in Shinjuku. Well, the place was pretty small that only fits few people, but the ramen surely tasted great. Good place to have a meal especially after partying around in Golden Gai.
