Ginza Kagari is the No.1 ramen restaurant in the Ginza area. Actually, they acquired one Michelin-star in 2016. Their ramen has not only good taste but also beautiful appearance. Their soup is Tori paitan (whitish chicken-bone soup) and has a mild taste. You have to wait for more than 1 hour, but it proves that Ginza Kagari is very popular.

Budget: ~¥1,300
Open time: 11:00~15:30/17:30~22:30 (Mon-Fri), 11:00~15:30/17:30~21:00(Sat, National holidays)

Ginzasa’s ramen has Tai (Red Sea Bream) broth soup and its smell is really nice!! Because of fish broth soup, it’s plain-tasting but also has a rich taste. So Ginzasa is popular among women. The way to eat it that I want to recommend to you is to pour the soup onto Tai-Meshi (Red Sea Bream rice) after eating the ramen.  You might get good reaction from that.

Budget: ~¥999
Open time: 11:00~15:30/17:30~until it runs out of Soup
Closed: Sunday, National holidays
Credit Card: No

3. Menya Hyottoko(麺屋 ひょっとこ):

Menya Hyottoko is also popular among women because of its plain taste. Its ramen soup is really different from other ramen restaurants. The soup has Yuzu (Japanese citron), which is often used in Japanese food for its flavor. Probably, you can never enjoy this taste in other countries. So you should try it when you visit Ginza.
Budget: ~¥999
Open time:11:00~20:00 (Mon-Fri), 11:00~19:00 (Sat)
Closed: Sunday, National holiday
Credit Card: No

4. Ginza Oborozuki(銀座 朧月):

Ginza Oborozuki is the No.1 Tukemen ramen restaurant around Ginza station. Tukemen is one kind of ramen eaten after being dipped in a separate bowl of soup or broth (like the picture above). They use rich fish broth soup and thick noodles. The noodles are very chewy, and I love that. There is always a long line so you might have to wait for a seat, but Ginza Oborozuki is worth it.

Budget: ~¥1,500
Open time:11:30~15:30/17:30-22:00 (Mon-Fri, National Holiday), 11:30~15:30/17:30~21:00 (Sat)

5. Shinamen Hashigo(支那麺 はしご):

Last dinner in Tokyo, got lost looking for this small ramen place with no english sign but its worth it. #shinamenhashigo #ramen #ginza

Shinamen Hashigo is the No.1 Dandan noodle (担々麺) restaurant in the Ginza area. Dandan noodle(担々麺)is called Szechuan Style Sesame Hot Noodles in English and it’s a very spicy ramen. So if you like spicy flavors, you should go to this restaurant. You can order rice for free and many customers pour the spicy soup onto the rice after eating the noodles. So you can get full at a low price 🙂

Budget: ¥1,000~¥1,999
Open time:11:00~5:00 next morning (Mon-Fri), 11:0~21:00 (Sat,Sun,National holiday)
