It’s 7am in Narita airport. You just passed the security checks and bought a huge pack of matcha kit kat to bring back to Europe.
The biological clock in your body is perfectly aware of the time, despite the neon lights on the ceiling make the space around you time agnostic.
Some black letters on a white background will complete the trick: Ippudo.
Is 7am too early to enjoy the final bowl of ramen of your trip? Is it too early for a thick pork broth topped with belly chashu? Is it too early for their secret umami miso paste? Is it too early to chose between soft and firm noodle?
Trust me my friend: when it comes to ramen, it’s never too early!
