Ramen Expo 2017

The Ramen Expo in Expo Commemoration Park (more commonly known as Banpakukoen) takes place over three successive weekends (including Fridays) in December, so the the dates for the festival are actually December 9th to 11th, 16th to 18th and 23rd to 25th.

If past years are any indication, there will be up to 40 stores from around Japan setup in the park, although each weekend will see a different group of ramen makers landing at the expo.

Entry to the event is free and you can buy tickets at the venue to exchange for a bowl of ramen at any of the stalls.
