The number of Michelin-starred ramen restaurants in Tokyo has increased

Tsuta in Tokyo has the honor of being the first ramen restaurant to receive a Michelin star. Nakiryu followed Tsuta with Michelin stars in 2017 and Konjiki Hototogisu in 2019. Finally, Ginza Hachigo, one of Tokyo’s favorite ramen restaurants, has also been awarded a star. All three restaurants with one star in the 2022 Michelin Guide became famous for their different interpretations of classic Japanese dishes.
