Ramen Walk: Kannana Dori



Description:

Kannana Dori (η’°δΈƒι“γ‚Š; also known as Route #7) is a ring road encircling the core of the Tokyo metropolis. It's also become known as a famous street for ramen - for unknown reasons. As the street encompasses the entire city, it's host to many ramen hot spots around town. None are hotter, however, than at the intersection of Kannana and Route 246. Fueled by a loyal base of customers from nearby Komazawa University, it's been a place that for decades has fostered Tokyo's growing ramen culture.

Tucked into sleepy Setagaya Ward, this area is best reached by the Tokyu Den-En-Toshi line's Komazawa Daigaku station (only two stops from Shibuya). Once there, simply follow your nose (and the crowds) to find this strip of great ramen joints. The layout of the place makes it easy to do some window shopping (and salivating) before choosing the bowl that's right for you.

Below are highlighted five of the best shops in the area. This is by no means an exhaustive list, however, so go with your instincts to find the noodles that you find most slurpable.
