Naritaya is right next door to the bright red-colored Sensoji, Tokyo’s oldest temple. The whole surrounding neighborhood of Asakusa is a wonderful traditional backdrop. Naritaya’s menu includes classic soy sauce (Naritaya) ramen, miso or spicy miso ramen, and maze soba (soupless ramen). In historic Asakusa, classic soy sauce ramen might seem most appropriate. But if you haven’t tried maze soba before, why not try it at Naritaya? Maze soba requires everything to be thoroughly mixed and instead of soup, a flavorful oil clings to the noodles. Know that Naritaya gets crowded for dinner or on weekends. In short, it’s a popular place! Same as at Menya Honolu, there’s a 1st floor with counter seating and a 2nd floor with tables. Lastly, there’s also a prayer room on the 2nd floor. If you’d like to use this space, please let me know ahead of time.
