Tokyo, Japan Day 1 - Ameyoko Shopping Street & Tokyo Skytree

We travelled to Japan during the November period for a 2 weeks holiday in 2013. The weather was good, not too cold and not too hot either. We covered Tokyo, Hakone, Mt Fuji, Osaka, Kyoto & hotel hopped four times. Definitely a tiring yet great experience of Japan. First stop, Tokyo!

En route to Narita International Airport via. Delta Airlines - meals on board, full inflight entertainment & most importantly, direct flight! I wouldn't want to waste my time transiting unless I'm stopping over.

Nagi Golden-gai (ラーメン凪) Ramen Shinjuku, Tokyo

Visited Japan recently and we were on an adventure to hunt for some best ramen in Tokyo. We researched and discovered Nagi Ramen serves great ramen in dried sardine broth. Nagi ramen chain has a few stores in Tokyo and we went to the most popular joint located in the vicinity of Shinjuku.

Located on the second floor of wooden shop houses, the branch at Shinjuku is really cramped with limited counter seat capacity. We arrived at 11 pm for supper and there's a queue till the back alley. Thankfully, we waited less than 30 mins. I've to say the Japanese are really efficient.

Rokurinsha (六厘舎) - Tokyo Ramen Street, Yaesu, Tokyo

Located at the underground mall linked to the JR Tokyo Station (nearer to the exit of Yaesu), you'll find Tokyo Ramen Street in First Avenue Tokyo Station. You'll always find the longest queue at Rokurinsha and the long lines probably says it all. They are known to be Tokyo's best tsukemen or dipping noodles.

Rokurinsha is famous for it's thick noodles served with dipping sauce which is thick and flavourful. People are known to wait for over an hour for this. We arrived at about 8 pm and as usual the long queue. Gladly, the line moves fast and we went in within an hour!
