Easy to Digest Shoyu Ramen with Plenty of Chinese Cabbage at “Dotonbori Shinza”

“Dotonbori Shinza” is a popular ramen restaurant which currently has 46 locations in Osaka, Kansai, and the Tokyo metropolitan area.
The recipe for the delicious ramen here was made by the restaurant’s founder, who has worked as a chef at French restaurants. His goal was to make a soup that is easy to digest that you could eat every day. Supposedly the ramen here has a unique, habit-forming taste.
This time, I visited the “Ario Otori” store in Osaka Prefecture’s Sakai City.

Osaka-Kishiwada Danjiri Matsuri

The Kishiwada Danjiri Matsuri was founded around 300 years ago from the people’s wishes to have “a bountiful grain harvest.” Many years have passed since its inception, and today this festival also serves to strengthen the bonds between the local people. During this festival, people carry danjiri (decorative portable shrines) around town while letting out powerful cries. Another fun thing to look out for are the plenty of gourmet food stalls set up during the festival.
