Ramen in Japan
Ramen is offered in various types of restaurants and locations including izakaya drinking establishments, lunch cafeterias, karaoke halls, and amusement parks. However, the best quality ramen is usually only available in specialist ramen-ya restaurants. As ramen-ya restaurants offer mainly ramen dishes, they tend to lack variety in the menu. While standard versions of ramen are available throughout Japan, the last few decades have shown a proliferation of regional variations.
