Another year, another Ramen Girls Festival.
If you check my post from a year ago, you can see that the organizer, Satoko Morimoto, goes all out.
A lot of popular shops came, and this year was much more organized than the year before. The problems of insane, four hour lines was fixed by having more shops and more days.
What up Tsukada-san!
Shinshuya Men from Yamagata Prefecture.
Kakua from Shinjuku, Tokyo.
Suzuran in Ebisu, Tokyo.
Hulu-lu in Ikebukuro, Tokyo.
Hokuboshi in Tokyo.
The above "bowls" are actually ramen cakes, made custom to mimic the real ones.
Japan has more and more food festivals each year. If you go with a group, it's a fun way to sample a dozen or so bowls in one sitting.
See you next year.
Keep an eye on their site for more info.
