Ramen is a popular Japanese dish, and a bowl of ramen in the cold weather makes it much more wanted.
The Sendai Ramen Festa features the top ramen from ten different prefectures, and you can try them all at this event. Some stalls are new, whereas others have participated at the event in the past.
Just a five minute walk from JR or subway Nagamachi station, it is a very exciting event for ramen fans. The event area itself is free to enter, and tickets for the ramen are available for purchase at 750 yen each. For more toppings, purchase them at the stall directly.
I still clearly remember the day I first landed in Japan, and since then it has been my goal to set foot in all 47 prefectures. I try to look for less touristy areas, preferring the countryside to the city. I'm always amazed by the many Haagen Dazs and ice cream flavors available only in Japan.
