***THIS IS A LIMITED EDITION POSTER, ONLY 11 COPIES LEFT!
===========================================================

Do you want to try the best of the best ramen? This poster illustrates 25 top ramen bowls that are highly recommended by Japanese locals, food critics, and ramen experts in Japan. Mark them off one by one as you try these delicious ramen bowls in person when visiting Japan next time!

---------------------
INTRODUCTION
---------------------
From January 2016, I traveled to Japan and started my ramen journey. Prior to my journey, I did a lot of homework and research of ramen shops, recommendations from foodies friends and other ramen experts. As a result, I have tried 100+ ramen bowls throughout 6 months of traveling.

The sad part is I don't live in Japan. Every time I came back to the US, my mind is already thinking about re-visiting some of the best ramen bowls that I had in Japan. That's why I design "THE RAMEN CHART," a list of the world famous and high-quality delicious ramen bowls in Japan. After trying so many superb ramen, these top 25 ramen bowls on THE RAMEN CHART are definitely THE 25 BOWLS that I will recommend to a true ramen lover. Most of these ramen has already received awards from the country, some won the local's most favorite ramen bowls, some even already got very popular overseas too. And of course, one of the best bowls I fell in love with is from the first Michelin-ranked ramen shop called Tsuta 蔦.

---------------------
ILLUSTRATION
---------------------
Each ramen bowls are drawn from my photos, which was taken from each visit to the shop. It provides clues of toppings, noodle types, and side dishes from simply the presentation of each bowl.

----------------------------
SOUP FLAVOR TABS
----------------------------
While the soup is as important as the noodles and toppings, I first had a difficult time expressing it on my poster. That's why I have a new system to express each bowl's soup flavors.

----------------------------
LOCATION MATTERS
----------------------------
The ramen bowls are organized based on location. Shops located on the North side of the country will locate on the upper part of the poster, and the ones located on the South will be found near the bottom of the poster. Although over 50% are located in Tokyo area, there are recommended shops located in Southern part of the country like Osaka, Hyogo, Wakayama, Nara, Fukuoka, as well as all the way North in Hokkaido.

BACKGROUNDMost ingredients that make up a delicious bowl of ramen came from the sea: seafood, kombu, (kelp) sea salt, etc. "The Great Wave" actually perfectly represents the huge impression from every single ramen bowl I've tasted as well. Waves are continuous, some are small and some are particularly huge! And that is how I imagine myself thinking about each ramen. When there's a huge wave, it imprints a significant flavor, texture, and impression in my mind. "The Great Wave off Kanagawa" by Japanese artist Hokusai became my inspiration for this poster background design.

Absolutely stunning artwork, and great customer service. The poster I ordered ended up getting stuck in the USPS system, and it wasn't being moved from the facility it was in. Soon after I contacted the seller the item was moved forward from the facility, and arrived shortly after. The seller sent me a second poster as a gift to make up for the extra long shipping time. This has been an overall lovely experience and I will most likely be buying another poster in the future.

Looks fantastic and seller was super accommodating. Got this as a birthday gift for my friend in the middle of this pandemic, and she loved it! I also ended up accidentally shipping to my house and was unable to change it through Etsy but I just contacted the seller and there weren't any issues.

The poster itself is beautiful quality and the stickers are the perfect addition!! It was a little tough to fit into a Michael’s 16x20 format frame but it’s doable. So excited to gift these to my ramen-obsessed partner. ☺️
