Rikugien has night illumination twice a year during cherry blossom season and when the trees change color in the fall. This is my first night view visit to this spectacular park-one of Tokyo's finest. Perhaps, needless to say, but, for a weeknight it was pretty crowded.
Arashikawa Ramen Ueda is named after a town in Hokkaido, which is famous for miso ramen. This variety was a monthly special with yuzu in the broth, which was overwhelmed by the miso, which I like so no problem really. If I want yuzu flavor I can go to Afrui in Ebisu easily.
