There is a good reason why Rokurinsha is consistently highly rated throughout online. Rokurinsha specializes in only Tsukemen-style ramen in the basement of a Tokyo train station.

I highly recommend visiting Rokurinsha to enjoy tsukemen. Tsukemen is different from traditional ramen. Rather than the ramen noodle sitting in a hot broth, the noodles are separated from the broth. You dip the noodles into the broth as if it was a dipping sauce. The concentrated broth has great umami flavor that is simultaneously savory and sweet. Noodles are made for tsukemen and has a slight chewier texture that absorbs the broth very easily.

But be prepared for the wait before you enjoy Rokurinsha. The great thing about this place is that people do actually line up in a orderly fashion (just like the rest of Japan). However, English is very limited here, so its best to review the ordering system prior to arrival.

Here are the steps:

  1. Order and pay from the ordering machine.
  2. Retrieve your ticket.
  3. A server will direct you to an open table and take your ticket. Then your order should arrive shortly!
