Where is the best place to eat ramen in Japan? Impossible to answer of course, but here’s a nice visual guide to quite possibly the 25 best ramen in Japan.
It’s produced by the Japanese Foodie blog, from months of intense ramen tasting in Japan. Each illustration is based on an actual photo and details exactly what kind of ramen it is, plus what’s in it.
You may recognise some of the famous ramen shops here, including Tokyo’s Tsuta, which was the first ramen shop in the world to be awarded a Michelin star. If you want to know where to eat ramen in Japan, this is a great, easy to follow guide to get you started.
All of the blog’s graphics are available to buy as posters – check out this guide to 42 different types of ramen – and if you like the work of US-based founder Fanny Chu, she needs your help to crowdfund her next project.
