Tokyo Ramen Show 2015, one of the largest food fair dedicated to ramen, will be held this autumn in Komazawa, Tokyo. It will last 12 days, from October 23rd to November 3rd, 2015. The greatest ramen makers from all over Japan will gather in one venue.
Each region has its own distinct gotochi ramen. Some are long established, others, particularly recently, use local ingredients to revitalize the community.
Japanese ramen has been gaining popularity among foreigners by means of several ramen shops opened overseas and foreign travelers lining up at ramen shops in Japan to slurp an authentic bowl of ramen. Ramen has become an international symbol of Japanese cuisine. Tokyo Ramen Show is a great chance to taste the nation's many varieties of ramen. In addition, the show features a main attraction, a limited bowl of ramen specifically created for this occasion by several ramen shops.
The show will last for 12 days, the longest period ever, and will be divided in two parts. The first part is from October 23rd to the 28th, and the second part is from October 29th to November 3rd. Over 40 varieties of ramen will be served! Don’t miss the opportunity to savor the beautiful and tasty bowls with various distinct flavors!
The event is annually organized since 2009 to promote tourism, food education and food culture through ramen. Additionally, it has contributed to reconstruction support in the quake-hit Tohoku region since 2011. The organizer sees this event as a means of contribution to society.
