Tsuru: tsuru tsuru tsuru the sound of eating udon
Ton: ton ton ton the sound of making the noodles
Tan: tan tan tan the sound of cutting the noodles
This chain udon restaurant on the 10th floor of Tokyu Plaza in Ginza opened in the Spring of 2016 and is not only beautifully designed but is also spacious and has quite the luxurious feel to it with a grand piano and bar. At night you can enjoy some live Jazz music and surprisingly the udon is affordable despite the location and ambiance.
You can choose from regular thickness or thin noodles and the udon comes in quite a large bowl with a large spoon. Above are the Niku udon (980yen) and Mentaiko udon (1280yen). How pretty is this salad? Tsuruton salad for two (1080yen). Everything was delicious, highly recommend!
PS: They are also located at Haneda Airport International Terminal.
