蕾 (Tsubomi in Oimachi)

I work once or twice a month at a beauty college teaching English to first year students. And let me tell you, after four hours of that kind of work, you build up quite an appetite.

Luckily, within a 500 meter radius of the campus, there are dozens of ramen shops.

Tsubomi (lit. flower bud) has an odd theme going on. Did you spot it in the photo above?



There are some random Evangelion themed signs scattered about, but that is about it for the tribute to one of the greatest anime series of all time.

I'll admit, I am into quirky atmosphere, and would have really dug a shop that was over the top anime.

The ramen? A hearty tonkotsu shoyu that felt to be 100% Yokahama style, though the shop isn't an ie-kei ramen joint.

By the way, you will stink after this one. Sorry, stylish future hairdressers of Tokyo!
