For the Best Rice Bowls in Japan, Try Majidon, Using Minami-Uonuma Rice!

Mention Minami-Uonuma in Niigata Prefecture, and rice will come to the mind of most Japanese. Minami-Uonuma Koshihikari is famous as Japan's top brand of rice, prized for its exceptional taste. When it was suggested that restaurants in this town make their biggest rice bowls made with Minami-Uonuma Koshihikari, top-class chefs rose to the challenge, offering their own versions of Majidon, or "serious" rice bowls!

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.

Tokyo Ramen Show 2018

Ramen is one of the most quintessential dishes of Japan that all tourists should try at least once—though I’m sure once won’t be enough. It’s a perfect harmony of noodles, soup, and other ingredients. And what better a place to try it than at the Tokyo Ramen Show, where you can try ramen from popular local shops from all over Japan in one stop! You can also try original ramen that you won’t be able to find anywhere else!

For Ramen Full of Nira, Head for Osaka's Ten-Ten, Yu

There is a ramen restaurant I have loved for a long time.
Named Ten-Ten, Yu, it's a sister shop to Kyoto's famous flagship, Ten-Ten-Yu.
A lot of regular customers seem to come to this ramen shop every day to enjoy the free Nira Kimchi, a spicy Korean pickled cabbage with Chinese chives (Nira in Japanese).
