What is Vegetable Ramen?
Japan is an island nation with little history of immigration. In contrast to much of Europe and the United States, it is not home to people from a variety of different ethnic and religious backgrounds. Nearly all Western ramen shops offer a vegetable variant. In light of our mission to promote the distinctive Japanese culinary phenomenon of ramen on the global stage, we want to ensure that ramen served around the world is more authentic to the Japanese original. To this end, we propose a "global standard ramen" model designed to promote consistency of flavor throughout the world. The following vegetable ramen dishes are prepared in the traditional vegetarian culinary style of Japan.

New infrastructure for international visitors
According to a survey conducted last year by the Japan Tourism Agency, the most common annoyance for visitors to Japan was "poor Wi-Fi access" (36.7%), followed by "communication difficulties" (24%). We are pleased to announce that we have introduced Wi-Fi this year in response to a number of inquiries.
Muslim prayer rooms
Muslims pray five times per day. In a bid to make our Muslim visitors feel welcome, we have set up a dedicated prayer room with prayer mats and a kiblah (compass) that indicates the required direction.
