Japanese people love to finish drinking alcohol by eating ramen. Even though the black soup looks so thick and salty, this soup is a little sweet enough to be great after drinking.

Whenever you visit, you'll see the long lines for this very popular shop. While it is famous for their thick seafood-based Tsukemen, you should the simple ramen too. Kamatama ramen (like Kamatama Udon, one of popular Udon) is also worth a try.
