Basically, the month where I put down the crutches and started walking.
Lots of ramen events. Both the Grand Tsukemen Fest and the Tokyo Ramen Show.
These guys are all legends in the ramen game.
The Japanese Northern Alps. See you next year!
Like a boss.
松葉ガニ駅弁 - Local train stations all over Japan make special bento boxes with regional food favorites. In this case, snow crab. These are usually weak as far as cuisine goes. Factory made and overpriced, but the novelty factor, paired with a cold beer, makes them kind of worth it.
