Nogata Hope


Restaurants & Cafés


Now operating a total of six shops in Tokyo, Nogata's last best hope (at least when it comes to ramen) got started here. One of the leading lights on the 'ramen battleground' that is Kannana-dori and its surroundings, Hope offers its signature Nogata Hope Ramen (¥740) with a rare triple soup: chicken and vegetable mix, pure vegetable, and pork base. The resulting tonkotsu concoction is punchy and a little greasy – consider telling the staff that you want less fat ('abura sukuname').


2-58-4 Nogata, Nakano-ku, Tokyo

Transport Nogata Station (Seibu Shinjuku line); Koenji Station (Chuo, Sobu lines)

Telephone 03 3387 2886

Open 11am-4am
