3. AJITOKU (味特)

Surprisingly, AJITOKU opens until 3 a.m.. So many people visit the Ramen restaurant after drinking at Izakaya restaurants. It’s one of the Japanese cultures and Ramen we eat after drinking is called “Shime-Ramen” (that means Ramen after drinking). Probably, many foreigners think this behavior is crazy because it can be the cause to get fat. However, many Japanese love the habit. Why? Because we feel the ramen after drinking great taste. Of cause, the ramen of AJITOKU is really nice!!

At RAMEN-SANTOUKA, Salt Ramen is popular. Generally, Japanese love Soy Sauce Ramen and  Tonkotsu (Pork Broth) Ramen. But sometimes we want to eat Salt Ramen because it is non-fatty and not heavy.
