Slurp up bowl upon bowl of ramen at this flavorful festival! Since 2013, the Fukuoka Ramen Show has been showcasing the delicious flavors of some of Japan’s best ramen shops. The event is so popular amongst ramen addicts that three more days have been added to the bill this year, bringing the grand total up to twelve days, and 144,000 people are expected to attend. 24 shops will participate, including well-known local restaurants like Hakata Ippudo and Kurume Taihou.
