How to get ramen in Shinjuku. First, select the type of noodle you want, including what kind of meat, vegetable, broth...etc. Toss in your money and press the desired button, like a vending machine. Get a ticket from the machine, and go in the side door of the restaurant. The people behind the noodle counter will tell you where to sit. You show the guy your ticket and 2 seconds later, presto! your ramen.
My ramen. In a huge bowl.
And ice water in matching snoopy pitchers to go with it. One of the cheapest and awesomest meals I've ever had in Japan.
