Originating from China, ramen has developed into a popular dish in Japan and throughout the world. Ramen consists of noodles, soup, and toppings, each with a great variety of choices. Certain regions of Japan specialize in shoyu, miso, shio, and tonkotsu soups, each with their unique taste. Japan has been attracting more and more people with just ramen itself. Some travel across the world to try the different kinds of ramen that make the country so unique. Ramen festivals are also being held throughout the world, inviting Japanese ramen shops to sell their ramen.
