About 5 AM Ramen
In some cities, it’s a juicy sandwich or a savory kebab. In Tokyo, it’s about eating a hearty bowl of ramen to close the curtains on a long night. I speak from experience when I say this – nothing satisfies like a bowl of 5 AM Ramen. This website is centered on ramen, Japan's favorite soul food. From the best instant ramen, to the best Tokyo ramen shops, we cover it all.
