If you are looking for a new apartment, I can vouch for the real estate agent in Higashi-Nakano because, well, they found me my latest apartment. One of the joys of moving to a new place is discovering all of the local eats within walking distance. Higashi-Nakano was actually my first choice in locations to live in Tokyo. But as fate would have it, it was not to be, and I ended up down the road in Nishi-Shinjuku. Had things gone differently, Kojitsu may have become my regular ramen shop.
Empty on a weekday afternoon, but I have a feeling that it livens up in the evening. This is a local shop for sure, run by local ladies, serving local style ramen; niboshi shoyu with hints of fried scallop and shrimp.
The polar opposite of nearby Ringodo, with its heavy miso.
