Hello, I’m Misano. I would like to share my experience of several singular & superb ramen restaurants I visited during my recent stay in Osaka and Kyoto.
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).
The HAKODATE GOURMET CIRCUS is the largest food event in Hakodate. Of course you’ll find an impressive array of local Hokkaido specialties, but also local specialties from other cities around Japan with close relations to Hakodate, as well as some food from other countries. This event is a great opportunity to enjoy fresh local seafood and regional cuisine from various areas.
“Senba Shinsaibashisuji Shotengai” is a shopping district packed with people.
It’s also a gourmet battlefield where delicious restaurants duke it out.
Our focus this time is “Ajiman,” a restaurant that’s been adored for over 50 years!
Himeji Yukata Festival is a popular early-summer event in which people, clad in yukatas, gather in the city! There’s plenty to enjoy, including parades, yukata fashion shows, musical events, food stalls, and more! The festival is held June 22nd through 24th every year. Be sure to put on a yukata and enjoy sightseeing at the World Cultural Heritage Site and national treasure Himeji Castle during this event!

All around Japan, Tanabata Matsuri, or "Star Festivals", are held in July. In Hiratsuka, Tanabata Matsuri started as a commercial promotion, but now its decorations are so gorgeous that it's said to be the best in Japan!
To satisfy any cravings you have, there's a huge food event in Tokyo called Manpaku.
Not limited to any one type of food, it offers a wide selection of items on the menu that can be eaten outdoors.

In Kitashinchi, Osaka's high-class pleasure quarter, there is an udon noodle shop that's only open at night. It's named Kagawa. The owner comes from Kagawa Prefecture, famous for Sanuki udon.
After winning the 2016 Japanese Curry Awards, this restaurant has come to represent Osaka in terms of curry udon. It's so popular that lines form in front of the place, even in the middle of the night.
