I’m a super fan of Japanese ramen and like to try every ramen restaurant that I heard. I’ve known ICHIRAN for the first time when it opened in New York in 2016. It took two hours to wait online before you get into the door, that really scared me. After two years I decided to try it in the early afternoon around 6:00pm. Let’s see what is the experience like.
Find stickers on the street when getting off the subway.
This flag makes me feel like traveling in Japan .
The first impression is this solo dining booth, give me so much privacy and easy to focus on the flavors. Five stars.
Every bowl of ramen is customized, you can choose how spicy you want or within or without garlic. So sweet.
Add more extra topping and sides is possible. Don’t forget to refill your noodle.
Unfortunately, I didn’t try any drink at this time, but Ramune is my favorite Japanese soda. If you have kids don’t miss this.
This call button is the most interesting experience in ICHIRAN, simply click the bell button for any help, but if you put the dessert tray on the top of the call button area it will ringing a piece of music to let the staff know that you want your dessert.
If you have no idea how to start to order maybe you should select this recommended set just like me.

As a professional photographer who walks around the city every day, the weight and size of the backpack are important to me. Especially when I am taking the subway, the bigger backpack takes up too much space and it is also not convenient when to sit down. It was so hard to find a perfect backpack that both have the portable size and handy function. I have never stopped the desire to search for better solutions from various brands until I saw a deal on B&H last month. I finally got my Lowerpro ProTactic BP 250AW at the price of just $65.27 including tax (now $99.99 on Amazon / $118.99 on eBay). After using it for a month, I shared my feelings here:
Before started I would especially talk about the feeling of backpacking, because it is so comfortable! The wide spacing between the shoulder straps is particularly suitable, and the ventilation system on the back is very well designed and does not feel particularly painful on the shoulders.
First of all, the 250AW package is the smallest one in the series, with 350AW and 450AW respectively. The size and capacity of this bag are designed for mirrorless camera users, but I found that my Canon EOS 5D Mark III and 24-105mm lenses are completely problem-free. Even can hold one camera and two lenses have no problem, there is still a lot of space enough to put batteries and accessories. Compared to the Lowepro Flipside 200 I used before, there is more space for accessories and all the grid are flexible, the most important thing is there is a space for iPad and notebook.
The padded Touch-Fastened interior dividers can be completely customized or removed. This is particularly intimate can be changed according to fulfill equipment upon different needs. I removed the bottom layer of the partition to put my Lee filter system for long exposure.
My favorite back-open design of this bag completely cures me who feel not safe. In addition, the backpack has also designed 3 side access pockets on both sides and above, it is very convenient to take my camera and filters out of the bag, never have to worry about opening the entire backpack on the street.
When I first got the backpack, I found that the whole bag was solid and tough, like a tortoiseshell. This is also one of the reason make me purchased. I prefer to take the camera from the top, the accessories are placed on both sides, this design just right for my appetite. I like the top opening design, I feel very safe with it.
In addition to these, the built-in rain cover may give this product a 5 starts rate, it can protect the backpack and equipment when raining and snowing.
I’ve used the Lowepro Flipside 200 for many years, which is also a very good one and I like it so much, but compared with the Pro Tactic 250AW, there is less space for iPad and notebook, no side pockets, no built-in rain cover.
I hope you can know more about Pro Tactic series by reading my review and wish you to get a perfect camera bag to travel with you.
