If you like shopping, boutiques and shops are everywhere and use eco-friendly materials for clothes and shoes. You can find pottery, special ceramics, and handicrafts you won’t find anywhere else. Nakameguro is the perfect place to visit for artists and enthusiasts.

    super food

  2. Evry tasty!

    Frank let’s us dive into the more specialised and top end ramen places. We experienced a lot of flavours during the tour with different broths and seasonings, very tasty!
    Frank is very knowledgeable about the dish.
    There is a lot to eat, so don’t eat anything before the tour.

  3. Must do tour!

    This is an exceptional tour for anyone interested in an education and sampling of a variety of ramen that you would not be able to piece together yourself. Frank has gone to great lengths to provide a well rounded, educational tour with a delicious variety. The ramen shops are prepared for your arrival and serve delicious bowls that are still bigger than you need. Tokyo has infinite gems…but finding them as a tourist is quite hard. Trust that this tour will leave you full and fascinated by the world of ramen.

  4. Fantastic food and host!

    Frank’s Ramen Tour was a true highlight of our trip to Japan. Frank is a wonderful host and does a fantastic job with this tour, which flows seamlessly from shop to shop filled with ramen history and education. A totally interactive experience and opportunities to learn more about ramen, or Tokyo/Japan in general.

    Of course the highlight of the tour is the FOOD! Frank has scheduled a wide variety of ramen in manageable portions. Shio, Shoyu, Tantamen, Soba, Curry, Miso Curry, and “fusion” options. Stop 1 has 4 choices, you choose 2. Stop 2 has 3 choices, you choose 2. Stop 3 has 4 choices, you choose 2. If you’re travelling as a couple, you can order all of the bowls and share – trying 11 different ramens! Note that even though the portions are small, it is still A LOT of food. We ordered all 11 bowls (as a couple), shared them and didn’t finish any of them. We left full but stopped ourselves before getting too stuffed.

    TLDR: Just do it, you won’t regret it. This tour is fantastic.
