Our mission is to spread Japanese ramen overseas. We want to spread Japanese culture and mind set overseas through making ramen and showing how fun, heartwarming and fulfilling it is as well as it’s taste and the preparation process.
One of the most influential food in the world ‘Japanese Food’, among then ramen is particularly popular. We will share the ‘possibility’ and ‘problem points’ overseas that founders who were mainly involved in the popularization of ramen in China actually experienced, and was established in hopes of further development and expansion of the market. I hope that by spreading ramen which itself is Japanese culture overseas, this will help solve various problems currently faced by domestic restaurants within Japan. In the future, to make the association more practical and meaningful, we will hold social gatherings and regular meetings for those who are interested in opening stores overseas to share information and objectives. Chairman Shigeya Fujisaki

As the first step in the association to spread Japanese ramen to the world, we have been holding ramen schools (tutorial class) in Beijing and Shanghai in response to a request from China, where Japanese ramen has been booming since last year. After giving the tutorial to the participants, we used the kitchen to practice the process of making ramen from the basics of soup making to the finished ramen.
An important point in expanding ramen overseas is, as the Japanese saying goes “When in Rome, do as the Romans do”. A variety of people participate in the Ramen School, such as those who want to learn how to make ramen, people who just purely love ramen, and people who want to run a ramen shop. Interact with various people overseas, learn about the culture of their country, know the taste, know the ingredients in the country, and together they will complete the Japanese ramen that people in that country think is delicious. These are the things that are learned and fostered by getting in touch with the local people. “Ramen School” is a place for learning about the market and network building. We will provide you with the know-how and network that we have gained.

Association Member Stores / Member introduction
The Directors will also participate in the following schedule
Just because you can make a delicious ramen doesn’t mean you can make a thriving shop. I hope that you will experience the management, sales promotion, and connections needed to continue to flourish. Also, how can you build a thriving store by taking in the valuable opinions of those who already operate the stores locally? We will support not only the taste but also the attitude of how we can continue to flourish.
History of ramen
The first ramen sold in Japan in 1884 was “Shio Ramen”!?
“Nanjing Soba” provided at Yowaken, a Japanese restaurant in Hakodate in 1884, is the root of Japanese ramen and is said to be salt ramen. However, there are no detailed materials left, so it is not certain.
