Ramen in Tokyo - Introduction

analogarsonist | | Sep 12, 2013 09:37 AM

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to choose 3 ramen shops in Tokyo that will give us a great introduction to ramen in Japan!

I have read through almost all of the chowhound posts about ramen in Tokyo, and it's pretty clear to me that there is no such thing as "best ramen in Tokyo" - there are so many different styles, so many different personal preferences, and constantly changing trends!

So I guess I'm looking for recommendations for 3 different styles that would provide a good representation of ramen in Japan, and then recommendations for ramen shops that highlight each style...

We don't mind travelling out of the way to hard-to-find places with long line-ups. And since this would be an 'introduction', we don't care about trends :)

As always, any help greatly appreciated!
