What you’ll do

You might want to work up an appetite for this one, because you’ll be joining one of our hosts to slurp your way through Tokyo’s ramen scene together (we promise, slurping is good manners). You’ll head to either Okachimachi or Ikebukuro, depending on your vibe. Okachimachi is easy-going and just a few stops away from Tokyo station, whilst Ikebukuro is known as the ‘entrance to suburbia’ and as such, is always full of hungry commuters coming and going. There are literally hundreds of styles of ramen to try in Tokyo, and whilst we’d like to accept the challenge of trying them all, we’re just not sure it’s a good idea, medically-speaking. Perhaps you’ve heard of shio (salt), shoyu (soy sauce), miso (fermented bean paste), and tonkotsu (pork) based ramen, but there are also countless varieties of noodles, toppings, seasonings and classifications of broth to try too! You’ll discover how incredibly diverse Japanese ramen can be, with each originating region imparting its own stamp on the classic dish. Your host will also teach you how to order from ramen vending machines (sign us up) and the etiquette of eating it. Wow, that was a mouthful. Let’s get stuck in!
