Ramen is one of the most well-known dishes in Japan around the world. Although this popular noodle dish is originally from China, Japan is the country that comes to mind whenever you hear of this filling dish. Ramen is best eaten during the cold months, but, of course, it’s also a dish you can eat whenever you feel like it.
Japan boasts a number of ramen dishes all throughout its prefectures with each having a distinct taste that differentiates it from one other. If you love ramen or want to take a further look at what this hearty dish can offer, then you might want to check out the Saikyo Ramen Fes 2016!
The Saikyo Ramen Fes is an event that has been operating every year since 2009 and has showcased a number of ramen dishes from all around Japan since it started. Aside from ramen, there are also other noodle dishes like tsukemen and mazemen for noodle enthusiasts to try out.
This year, 40 noodle shops from all across Japan will gather again at the Machida Shibahiro with 10 shops consecutively rotating each week starting from March 31st to April 24th.
