Kuramae, Tokyo’s “Little Brooklyn,” has seen quite a lot of growth in recent years. Of course, this means delicious food has to move in too. And what’s on everyone’s mind when hungry on the way home from work (or a cold winter evening)?
Ramen. That’s right. And Ramen Kai is a little gourmet ramen shop you should check out. Not a quick chain type of joint, instead everything is carefully constructed to bring you a next level bowl of ramen.
“The Kuramae district in Taito Ward, Tokyo, called “Tokyo’s Little Brooklyn,” has seen more and more stylish stores that have been renovated from old buildings and warehouses, just like the real Brooklyn. The townscape along the Sumida River is also reminiscent of Brooklyn with its East River.” (TheJapanNews)
