A 5-Hour Wait at "Tomita" in Chiba Prefecture's Matsuko?! The #1 Tsukemen in Japan That's Worth the Wait!

Do you know about the shop said to be Japan's best ramen restaurant? That would be "Chuka Soba Tomita," in Chiba Prefecture's Matsuko City.
It is a famous shop among famous shops; Tomita has won the grand prize in TRY (Tokyo Ramen of the Year) for 4 consecutive years, has earned many victories at tournaments such as Dai Tsukemen Haku for being top-quality tsukemen, and has had its praises sung by many famous ramen critics.
This time, I visited that very "Tomita"!

Try amazing seafood tonkotsu ramen at Higashi-Jujo, Tokyo's Sansanto!

Allow me to introduce you to the shop that is said to have the best seafood tonkotsu ramen around: Sansanto. It’s only open at night for 2.5 hours between 6 p.m. and 8:30 p.m.! But this doesn’t put a damper on Sansanto’s popularity; people form lines outside in pursuit of a bowl of their famously delicious ramen every night they’re open! I headed over to see what all the fuss was about!
