The first day back in Tokyo we headed out to try something very different — Ramen. Ah but not the usual kind of Ramen, a deconstructed Ramen.
The flavours were incredible, and I can still remember how decadent that fried chicken was, how it fell from the bone, how juicy and flavourful it was and so so crispy on the outside. The bowl of broth was also packed with deliciousness, but it was so fatty, that I could not finish it — it was the very first time I did not end a meal in Japan, I honestly felt a bit embarrassed, but I just couldn’t sip more of that thick broth.
It was definitely an awesome experience, and a new way of eating something so traditional in Japan. Definitely a place to go back to.
After a quick stroll around Akihabara, we went to Ueno, and back to Akihabara (yay for JR passes!).
In Ueno we strolled around Ueno park trying to spot Shinobazu pound. It was tough to spot because it didn’t really look like a pound, due to the huuuuge water-lilies growing all over the water. It was so so beautiful.
We then went back to Akihabara, for another stroll.
Hope you enjoyed!
