Tomita Ramen is arguably one of the top ramen shops across Japan. It currently has an average 99.22 score on the Ramen Database and sits at the number 1 spot. They are twice winner of the Grand Tsukemen Festival, several times winner of Tokyo Ramen of the Year and countless other magazine/industry awards.
Once you're seated at 'Chuka Soba Tomita Ramen' (中華蕎麦 とみ田), located just a few blocks from Matsudo station, two main dishes will be competing for your attention: chuka soba and tsukesoba. The tsukesoba, their version of tsukemen dipping noodles, is the main draw here and it doesn't disappoint. You can opt for different quantities of noodles and also meat toppings (the epic tokusei version): a mixture of perfectly grilled and tataki-style char sui, all of which come together in perfect combination. After experiencing this bowl you'll start to see why Tomita Ramen is often dubbed the best ramen in Japan.
Next time you're in Japan, make sure to make the trip out to Matsudo for the taste of the real thing. Until then, we got you! Get your Tomita Cup Ramen here!
