I loved this fun and unique tour. There are so many ramen restaurants in Tokyo that it is almost impossible to know which ones are the best. I loved that this tour took care of that for me. I also loved the ramen education that Frank provided and the opportunity to try five different types of ramen from classic to unusual. I am so happy to have found this tour and very highly recommend it.

Tomoko san was great. She guided us through the fish market knowledgeably and efficiently. she knew immediately what our group required and was very patient and amiable.

Seeing is believing, but I realized that the look after seeing is terrific, deep and deep. Thank you for your detailed explanation.
