The estimated travel time on foot is 5 minutes from Ikebukuro station (JR, Seibu, Tobu, & Tokyo Metro Lines).

A stunning red for its exterior concept and no wonder this place will give you a fireball experience! The restaurant’s name is written in Kanji but I guess this place is hard to miss because of the attractive design on the outside plus you’ll get to see the chef showing spicy ramen noodles in their store’s banner.


“Counter Seating”

“Ticket Vending Machine”

This ramen house has shown how neatly their shop is being maintained despite of so many customers coming in and out. I also like the idea of having a brighter ambiance when eating. Good thing is that you can hang your coats, jackets or blazers on the available hangers located on the side part of the restaurant.

There are about 15 counter seats available for customers accommodation. If you are dining alone, this place is a great choice for you. It’s also recommended when you are eating with a friend or a co-worker, and even for dating.

It isn’t that overcrowded at all, although it can happen unexpectedly and probably the turn over time is 5 – 10 minutes.

There are a lot of local customers and seldom foreign travelers who’d wish to experience a different kind of ramen encounter here in Japan.

Recommended Menu

“Mouko Ramen”

This ramen dish is the most popular of all the dishes on their menu list. For first time customers, they also recommend Miso Ramen especially to those who prefer a not-so-spicy ramen experience.

The broth is based on spicy chilli flavor so it is truly burning-hot! You can choose the spiciness level from 0 to 10.

Additional Information

・Recommended for solo diners, with a friend or co-worker, and even for dating.

・Services offered: Available for take-out.

・Cons: Limited space.
