Kamukura Ramen :: New Year's Dinner

Most Asian cultures believe that eating noodles on New Year's brings you longevity and Japan is no different. Traditionally, soba noodles are eaten on the New Year's Eve but we opted for ramen noodles instead. We stumbledupon a poster of Wentworth Miller of Prison Break (huge in Japan) outside Kamukura ramen shop in Shibuya and had our last meal and beers of 2009.
あけまして おめでとう ございます‼

The giant menu and ticket machine is outside of the shop. They have lots of different iterations of their veggie broth ramen, but I would stick to their recommendations such as the negi/cha siu ramen pictured above. I like this place because their ramen doesn't weigh you down and knock you out like tonkotsu and hakata varieties. Lots of seats and hardly ever a wait, it's a great fall back if you can't find anything easy in super busy Shibuya. Other locations in Shinjuku and Ikebukuro.
