It has been announced that the largest ramen event in Japan, Tokyo Ramen Show 2018, will be held from October 25 to November 4 at Komazawa Olympic Park.

2018 marks the 10th anniversary of the Tokyo Ramen Show, which has drawn many people over the years. Aside from great-tasting noodles, the show promotes concepts like tourism, dietary education and culinary culture. The event has been drawing more visitors from outside Japan every year.

The show will host a grand prix to decide the country’s best ramen, not to mention special events like stage performances by a brass band and dance teams. Money from the event will go toward the continuing reconstruction of the Tohoku area, making it chance to eat ramen and make a social contribution at the same time. Slurp slurp!
