Ramen is a much-loved food across Japan, and there are plenty of different types to enjoy - different broths, different noodle textures, and different toppings all play a part in the taste of the dish. If you've ever wanted to rack and stack your favorite ramen, the Kagoshima Ramen Championship is the spot to do it.

Now in its sixth year, the event will host almost 20 different ramen chefs serving up their specialties, and it's up to you as the consumer to cast your vote about which variety you like best. Each bowl of ramen at the three-day event will set you back 800 yen.

Getting there

The Kagoshima Ramen Championships will be held at Kagoshima Waterfront Park (also known as Dolphin Port). If you're visiting via public transport, the closest stop is Asahidori Station on the Kagoshima City Tram Route. The venue is six minutes on foot from the tram stop.
