Ramen has been around for about a hundred years and as the time goes by, it keeps getting better and better. As I already said there are many kinds of ramen and almost every part of Japan has its own unique spin on how to prepare it exactly. The most popular four flavors of ramen are Shōyu, Shio, Miso and Tonkotsu ramen. Shōyu is based on a vegetable and chicken (or sometimes fish or beef) stock with plenty of soy sauce added for flavor. Shio ramen is made mainly with salt and any combination of chicken, vegetables, fish, and seaweed. Often pork bones are also used to make it even more tasty.
Miso ramen was developed in Hokkaido around 1965, and combines copious miso and is blended with fish broth or oily chicken and also sometimes with lard or tonkotsu. Tonkotsu ramen originated in Fukuoka and was originally made as an cheap fast food for laborers at fish markets. The soup broth is based mostly on pork bones and ramen noodles that are hard in the center and topped with cut pork belly are used.
To fully experience all the different kinds of ramen in Japan and to learn about ramen’s history, preparation and even future, we really recommend you take a ramen tour.
