野郎 (Yaro in Akihabara)



I needed a switchable battery case that would allow me to wire three 1.5v batteries in series, a cheap soldering iron, and some flash memory. If eclectic electronic purchases are your task for the day, Akihabara is your destination.


I'm not a fan of this style, but the in-your-face facade drew me in. And the help staff, all cute college-age girls, didn't hurt!


If you aren't down with the intensity of Jiro-style ramen, go for the tsukemen. It is much easier to eat. Well, maybe not that much.


Nothing to comment on really. The chashu was awful; leathery bits that I could barely chew. The noodles and soup were standard for this type. If golden pork liquid is what you are after, better to check out Musashi in Akihabara.

I went to the Yaro Ramen in Nakame for lunch and had their tsukenashi ramen...not bad and chashu was actually fine but generally flavor was unremarkable. Not bad but it tastes like what it is, a careful big corporation knockoff of Jiro−kei. Waitress was super cute though!
