Sixty noodles shops descend on Machida's Shibahiro Park, bringing some of Japan's best tsukemen, ramen and mazemen artisans together over the course of this 6 week long festival.
Each weekend features a different line-up of 10 ramen shops that have come from as far as Hokkaido in the north, to Fukuoka in the south. Ramen bowls started at ¥850, with additional toppings available at most booths, and a ¥2,400 ticket available allowing you to try any 3 bowls.
For 2017, they are running a spin-off gyoza/chahan (fried rice) event in parallel too.
