Taste regional variations from across Japan Ramen events

Autumn in Japan is a season that whets the appetite, and is thus the perfect season for organizing various food festivals. In October each year, Tokyo hosts two major events dedicated to ramen. Both attract huge crowds with a selection of popular ramen houses from across Japan gathered in one location.
