What does it take to own a ramen restaurant in Tokyo?

Posted by Sadao Sasaki on

Owning a ramen restaurant is not for the faint of heart.  Mr. Kunimoto, the owner of Men Gokoro Kunimoto, a small hole in the wall restaurant works from 8:00 am to 11:30 pm 6 days a week.  He makes everything from scratch including noodles and soup stock.  The proud owner is lucky if he can take a 15-minute break in between at his busy restaurant.
