What you'll do

During this one-of-a-kind experience, you’ll get to make delicious ramen in an actual ramen shop's kitchen. This award-winning ramen shop has kindly offered us exclusive access - something normally not available!

In the ramen shop's kitchen take in all the sights and sounds and feel just like a ramen chef, using the proper cooking equipment and techniques. You'll learn all about ramen prep and the ingredients used - including each of their purpose and where they come from.

Like a pro, you’ll ladle the broth (seasoning and soup), massage the noodles ("temomi"), and then comes most fun part - shaking the water out of the ramen noodles in a “tebo”. From here, you’ll place the noodles into the broth and then add toppings and arrange as you like.

Finally, it’s all about eating your ramen creation!

Frank was really informative and friendly. It was a three-person group. And we got the chance to assemble our own ramen and get to experience around in the kitchen area. It was a really unique experience and the ramen was good too. I'd definitely recommend it to other people

This was a fun-filled learning experience -- a Ramen class in the kitchen of one of the best Ramen restaurants in Tokyo. The class was very informative and Frank made sure it was well-organized. Highly recommended!

I purchased this experience for my brother and his girlfriend as a Christmas present for their trip together to Tokyo. Frank was incredibly accommodating in helping find them at the meet-up location, and welcomed them with open arms to the experience. Both my brother and his girlfriend left incredibly happy, as they absolutely loved this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. I’m so happy that they got a chance to experience (and taste!) this hands-on ramen experience. Thank you, Frank for everything!

Really cool experience. As a ramen lover it was awesome to get behind the scenes and make my own ramen bowl. Frank's knowledge of ramen is incredible. You can really pick his brain and learn a lot, even if you've been around ramen for a while. Really nice and easy experience, totally worth it.

It was an amazing life-time experience. Frank and Futa were really friendly and they gave us deep talk about ramen culture. Beside that the ramen that we cooked was one of the best ramens that we had in Tokyo.
