Tokyo tower resembles so much like Eifeel tower in Paris. Although it is not as huge and magnificient as Eiffel tower, it still carries its own distinctive charm in its metal structure. We did not go up the tower as we thought that the night view would be so much nicer. However due to itinerary planning, we did not manage to visit here at night. We headed back Shinjuku for shopping after taking a short scroll around the tower and found nothing much to do here.
Joinied in the queue for Ichiran Ramen because it was so popular. After purchasing our order tickets from the automated vending machine, we were given a form to circle our preferences for our ramens (soup base, thickness, spicy level, garlic etc). The staff then directed us to empty cubicles for seating, individually. We really love the brilliant concept of eating with privacy! The ramen was served through the blinds. You dont even get to see the chef's face, only his hands haha.
The ramen was so good that I still dream about it sometimes!
- Dont finish your soup if you still wish to refill noodles because they dont accept orders for extra soup.
We found a hidden laneway in Shinjuku called Omoide Yokocho (memory lane). After leaving the bustling Kabukicho street, the red-lit lanterns and the retro atmosphere made us feel as if we were in old Japan!
