Okinawa has been a blast. I almost don't want to leave. BUT. Okay this is a huge but. BUT as much as I enjoyed eating Okinawa soba, I don't think I'd survive here without ramen. I'm ready to go back to Tokyo.
Time for one last stroll along the beach.
Time to jet!
Wait what? Our reservation has been canceled??
Okay that's more like it. Goodbye Okinawa! Goodbye Kate! Goodbye Dad! Thanks for everything!
Upon arriving in Tokyo, I needed a bowl of ramen bad. And since we were passing by Shinagawa with our luggage in tow, we thought it would be convenient to stop at Shinatatsu. Having already been to most of these shops, we decided on Saijo (旭川ラーメン さいじょう 品達店) and their "legendary" shio ramen.
Here it is!
Actually, the assistant went with the shio and I went with shoyu. Both were good and both had their faults, but I was just happy to slurp a bowl.
Before I could go home, I had to make one last stop and drop off a gift for Jake-san. I thought about having a beer, but...maybe not. haha. (Translation: For customers just drinking beer, the first one will cost 5000 yen. Every other one after will cost 3000 yen.)
Home sweet home.
Special thanks go out to the assistant for planning such a wonderful trip. One word...
