Access from the Station

Travel time on foot is approximately 4 minutes from East Exit of JR Yamanote line – Ikebukuro Station and 6 minutes from Tokyo Metro Marunouchi Line – Ikebukuro Station.


The exterior has the signature signage of the restaurant’s name on it, and the wall is a combination of wood and blocks that’s quite amuzing while staring at it.


There are about 22 seats in total in a cubicle style seating arrangement.

Ichiran’s dining style is quite unique to any other ramen shops here. Loving the idea of eating in a cubicle that is just like having your own private space where you can slurp both noodles and soup without worrying that the person next to you might get annoyed. lol!

This ramen shop is also one of the great representation of Japanese culture and popularity wise, its name has conquered other countries abroad.

Recommended Menu

“Ichiran’s Classic Tonkotsu Ramen”

This ramen bowl has white tonkotsu soup that is so satisfying and will surely leave you overly satisfied!

If I could visit the place again, I’ll make sure to have an empty stomach so I can eat a lot!

Additional Information

Recommended for solo diners, with a friend or co-worker, and casual dating is also possible.

Kids are welcome!

Highly recommended for foreigners to try!

When I came to Japan last August 10, I went to Ichiran's Ikebukuro branch before I went to my AirBnb accommodation. Good thing that when I went there, it was not that crowded than the usual. I tried their Classic Tonkotsu Ramen and it tastes so great! 🙂 Ichiran was different from all of the ramen restaurants that I went to. For a solo traveler like me, I felt some privacy while eating my ramen because I'm on my own cubicle. Eating there was really an unique experience. #IchiranIkebukuro #IchiranIkebukuroBranch #一蘭池袋店 #Ichiran #一蘭 #IchiranRamen #ラーメン一蘭 #IchiranClassicTonkotsuRamen #TonkotsuRamen #天然とんこつラーメン #とんこつラーメン #Ramen #らーめん #ラーメン #라면 #Toshima #豊島区 #Ikebukuro #池袋 #Tokyo #東京 #東京都 #KantoRegion #関東地方 #Japan #日本 #Japan2017
