"Tokyo Ramen Tour" Episode on Tokyo Eye

Recently on the Tokyo Eye program hosted by Chris Peppler, there was an episode covering Tokyo ramen shops.

The segment presenter was Kevin Cooney and some other person whose name I don't recall. While I respect the effort they must have put into the episode, and the shops they presented are decent, some of the other information was simply not appropriate for the viewers, such as the recommendation to walk into most any ramen shop. 90% of the ramen shops in Tokyo are simply not worth going into. There also was no mention of the various ramen resources that are available to non-Japanese speakers to find out about good ramen shops in Tokyo, such as this blog, Ramen Adventures, or Ramenate.
