I had the opportunity to fly over Tokyo on a helicopter last year and fly right next to Tokyo Skytree before it was done building! It was my first time on a helicopter and it was amazing. As you can see, Soramachi was heavily under construction and I had no idea what it was going to turn into. This is a fun way to explore Tokyo if you’re not scared of heights :)
As we were heading to Tokyo Skytree, I did a little research and decided to try this tsukemen place on the 6 floor of Soramachi. The store is originally from Osaki and it’s very highly rated so we visited their new soramachi location. As we got to the 6th floor, there was already a long line but it didn’t take very long to get seated.
Tsukemen is similar to Ramen except that the noodles come separated from the soup and you dip the noodles in as you eat them. The tsukemen at Rokurinsha is a combination pork + fish broth soup and the noodles are on the thicker side. You can choose between hot or cold noodles but they recommend going with the cold noodles since it’s firmer. We tried the Ajitama tsukemen for 950yen. Check it out if you’re into pork + fish broth soup and will be posting on Tokyo Skytree shortly! (Now posted here)
