Good Ramen Place by YINGZHE Reginald FU

It has been a long time since I wrote something. I am too busy recently. Japanese Ramen is one of my favorite food. It tastes so great! I definitely will miss Japanese food after I finish my study abroad in Japan. My Labmates bought me to this Ramen restaurant. Gosh! This Ramen place is very popular. There are a lot of people waiting in line to try the ramen at here. So why this place is popular? First, of course because it tastes good, but another very important reason is this ramen place gives customers a lot of good despite of a very low price. Usually this amount of food as you can see in the photo will worth 1000 Yen, it is only worth 700 Yen. Amazingly, if you are willing to pay 1000 Yen, there will be even more ramen in the bowl. After I finished the ramen, I was so full and so happy. It was really a lot of food.  Personally I can't imagination can finish the larger size of this ramen.

Found a nice place to enjoy my dinner. It is interesting to find Oishii food around Japan. Now, I kinda understand one of the quintessential spirits of being a backpacker. A lot of delicious food left got to be explored. The food in Japan is pretty pricey though. 

In these days, I am still amazed by Japanese folks good life habits. Like, their recycling system. They don't smoke when walking on the street. Their streets are extremely clean. They don't talk loudly in the public places. That's Cool!

One of the Best Ramen in the World - Ichiran by YINGZHE Reginald FU

Today Aki San recommended me to go a restaurant named 一蘭. The restaurant is famous for its Ramen. I like eating noodle, so I definitely made the decision to there, which turned out to be a nice dinner. Yes, the Ramen there is great!  Look how popular the restaurant is! 24/7 non stop opening! If you go to Shinjuku, try the Ramen there. I shared the link under the pictures. Hope you will also enjoy it. 

Funny things happened when I went back to my hostel - I lost my way. It was raining heavily when I was walking to the restaurant. I held my iphone in my hand because I need to use Google Map to direct my way. Probably the phone got wet, the touch screen didn't work, which means I couldn't use GPS because the phone couldn't slide to open, but I kinda remembered my way and the direction, which like 30min walking distance. It was easy to get lost in the commercial district because everywhere looked like the same. I walked and walked but I felt that I might be in the wrong way. Final, I could make sure that I went the wrong way because I saw these words: 歌舞伎町. I didn't see these stores on my way to the restaurant. I was on the right avenue, but opposite direction. 

When your iphone touch screen doesn't work, try to hold the home and lock button at the same for couple of seconds. The phone will reboot. Reboot can solve most of the problems, right? 

First Impression of Japan by YINGZHE Reginald FU

It took me more than 25 hours to arrive at the Ace Inn Shinjuku Hostel: 15 hours flight from SFO to HK,  2 hours in HK, 4 hours from HK to KIX, 5 hours from KIX to the Hostel. It is a little bit terrifying for finding the route alone, especially after this long flight plus carrying a big and heavy luggage. I would thank my roommate Terry Li ZhaoQi for exchanging his luggage with me. If I didn't carry his big luggage, I would carry two luggages plugs a backpack.

Japanese folks are very friendly and polite. I met a Japanese girl in the express train in Osaka. Her name is Keina Yamazaki. I want to thank Keina for telling me I should go to No. 25 station to find my bullet train. Otherwise, I would probably miss the train. Japanese train is so on time. If you didn't go there on that time, you would miss it. That is probably one of the reasons why Japanese folks are strict with time. Many Japanese folks helped me out in the subway. I want to thank everyone for helping me finding my path. What Aki san told me got proved in my trip. 

When I arrived at the hostel, it was 7:30pm in Tokyo. I met my friend Jason Yang there. He helped me check into the hostel. Then, we went outside for dinner together. The first night dinner in Tokyo was wonderful. We were very satisfied with the restaurant and food we chose. Take a look at the picture. 

Everywhere I have seen in Japan is very clean. It was my first time to use this advanced toilet. Check it out.  I really like it. The cushion is warm. Very nice. I hate cold cushion when I sit on it. It was pretty comfortable and continent when the toilet cleaned it for you. Just one button. It's done.
