4. Sanchikuju

A popular tsukemen (noodles) spot! Their thick seafood tonkotsu sauce and the fish meal taste and smell amazing! The noodles are chewy and fat, and are complimented by the soup perfectly. 
[Editorial comment] The owner, who used to work at Rokurinsha, makes a thick fish tonkotsu soup so delicious you can never get enough. If you prefer a mild flavor, you may add some vinegar.
