This ramen tour was absolutely incredible! One of the best experiences I’ve ever had in my life period. I like to think I know a decent amount about ramen but Frank actually lives and breathes the stuff. It was so cool getting to pick his brain about all things ramen while trying some of his favorite spots around Tokyo. If I could do it all over again I would in a heartbeat, although I would probably try harder to find a friend to come with me so I could try all 4 options at each stop instead of having to choose 2. Overall this was an unforgettable experience, easily the best part of my trip to Japan. I’d highly recommend this to anyone whether you’re a seasoned ramen veteran or a total newbie you’ll be able to get so much out of this experience.

This tour is a must if you are visiting Tokyo. Foodies and history enthusiasts will both get their fix. We got to pick 6 different ramens (smaller portions that add up to the equivalent of a full meal) out of a total of 12 available at three restaurants. Our assembled tour group of less than ten people walked and took the subway between the three locations and this gave us the occasion to get to know each other. Frank was very personable and knowledgeable. Two thumbs up!

Frank was very knowledgeable and easy going; I had a great time walking from shop to shop discussing the city and it’s good culture with him and my fellow travelers. We tried six delicious and vastly different ramens that were thoroughly explained and I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Tokyo!
