Choose your Own Ramen Adventure

I was off to meet Keizo for some mid week noodles, but I took the wrong train. The shop we were meeting at was on the Seibu Ikebukuro line, and I took the Seibu Shinjuku line. These lines always confuse me, since neither of them are taken from Ikebukuro or Shinjuku. No worries, I had time to spare and could just walk a few kilometers.

Are there a lot of ramen shops in Tokyo? To put it in perspective, this little walk isn't near anything. Residential. Maybe a school or 2. Here is every shop I passed.

This shop was on TV, which is usually enough of an incentive for me to go.

Can you guess where I am?

Not a ramen shop per se, but I think this family restaurant has ramen on the menu.

Many different styles, you'll never suffer from lack of variety in Tokyo.

Only about 30 minutes have passed on my little walk. 30 minutes, and enough ramen shops for days of new adventures.

Almost to my destination station, the shops can be seen everywhere.

Oops, I got distracted.

This part of town is a bit far for me, so I probably won't be coming back here anytime soon. Has anyone been to any of these shops?
