A world apart from finicky kaiseki fine dining, ramen is Japanese soul food that appeals to old and young, rich and poor.
Mmmmmmmm ramen - steaming bowls of noodles drenched in a thick rich broth, laden with pork, spring onions and soft-boiled eggs.
Allow us to introduce you to a self-proclaimed ramen "otaku" - that's a ramen nerd to you and me - the perfect person to take you on an entertaining street food safari to the capital's finest and most down-to-earth ramen joints.
During the two-hour tour, you'll drop in on at least two ramen shops where your guide will help you order whatever you fancy, while he explains the cooking methods and ingredients in many types of ramen.
