This popular chain of spaghetti joints offers a good variety of Japanese-style pastas built around ingredients like asari clams, salmon roe, spicy cod roe and natto. But there's plenty more - you can choose from more than fifty variations in basic ingredients, with sauces that are tomato based, cream based or soy-sauce flavored (for the Japanese pastas).

You can also mix and match some twenty-five optional toppings and choose from four different portion sizes, for a very customizable bowl. And you can assemble a full meal by adding on Italian side dishes like Bocconcini-tomato caprese and arancini rice balls. Pastas start at under Y1000, and side dishes and drinks are very reasonable as well.
