I woke up this morning to the sound of rain drops thinking that my day off would have to be spent mostly indoors. F that! I’m going out! Even in the rain the cherry blossoms are beautiful. Forgive me but I’d like to take a moment to breathe. Ahh…I truly am blessed to be living this dream. Even though my days are long and the work is hard, I am having fun and I enjoy going in to work everyday. Sometimes I don’t even think it should be called work. Anyway, let’s go get some ramen!
Near Kugayama station off the Keio Inokashira Line, about five stations northwest of where I live, is a popular chuuka soba shop named Kai. If you’ve gotten to know me over the past few years, you’ll know that this is the type of ramen I live for–a nostalgic old school Tokyo-style shoyu ramen.
