Access from the Station

Travel time on foot is approximately 1minute from Exit 39 of Tokyo Metro Yurakucho Line – Ikebukuro Station and 4 – 5 minutes from East exit of JR Line – Ikebukuro Station.


Luckily situated just a few steps away from the station, this ramen shop is the talk of the town! Just by looking at the photo, you’ll see the available menu options that you can choose for your ramen bowl.

THe shop name is displayed in Japanese characters on the white banners that can be found at the entrance/exit area.


The interior concept is just like the other ramen shops. The dining area very limited space but it is still well ventilated.

There are only 17 available counter seats and a bit wider compared to most of the counter seats in some restaurants.

Many people come from all over the world and eat here while on vacation in Japan and they have easy to understand menus available in both English and Japanese.

Recommended Menu

“Tonkotsu Ramen @ ¥680”

Tonchin offers the “Tokyo style tonkotsu ramen” and it has been popularly known in Ikebukuro for a longer period of time.

This ramen bowl has one of the best flavors that you can find, really unique and will surely leave you overly satisfied! The broth is made of pork bone base with a combination of chicken and vegetables.

Also, the thick homemade noodles are perfect to slurp when combined with their signature broth.

Additional Information

Recommended for dining alone, with friends and family, or with someone special.
