The owners of local chain Daikokuya are adding another ramen restaurant to the Little Tokyo mix with the upcoming arrival of Hachioji Craft Ramen later this spring. As first reported by The Los Angeles Beat, a team of chefs from Daikokuya is currently in Japan honing their skills in hopes of bringing new techniques and flavors to the soon-to-open noodle specialist. As such, Daikokuya is currently closed at its original location until May 9, but is serving up its classic fare in what will be the future home of Hachioji Craft Ramen. Expect Hachioji Craft Ramen to offer more modern fare than the ever-popular Daikokuya with particular homage being paid to the city of Tokyo.
