Ichi Japanese Ramen House in the Faubourg Marigny closes after five months of business 

Marigny newcomer Ichi Japanese Ramen House (1913 Royal St.) closed recently after five months of business.

  Owner Yusuke Kawahara, who owns several Little Tokyo ( restaurants throughout the city, says the closure was due to "personal problems."

  "It was a good location but I had to take care of some personal things," Kawahara says. "I feel sorry for all the people who supported me."

  Kawahara opened the noodle house in the former SukhoThai space in July, serving steaming bowls of tonkotsu and shoyu ramen as well as Japanese small plates. A month later, Kawahara converted a Maple Street Little Tokyo location into a second Ichi branch. That location remains open from 5 p.m. to 2 a.m. daily, but discontinued lunch service.

  Kawahara says he hopes to add a ramen concept to his Little Tokyo space at 310 N. Carrollton Ave. after the holidays.
