In Japan “themed” eating areas seem to be popular and while in Odaiba we decided to go to one. The theme is Edo (the old name for Tokyo) in the Meiji era (roughly late 19th early 20th centuries). And the food they serve is ramen. After wandering around an enormous shopping complex we came to an old bridge with a Torii gate in the middle of a hallway. This signaled the entrance to a food court with multiple ramen vendors in the style of an old Japanese festival. This is what part of the room looked like:
First was the tonkotsu (simmered pork bone) ramen (similar to what we had earlier in the trip).
Everyone had their own favorite soup but they were all delicious, and it was interesting to compare all the disparate styles among this single food.
