Why do they put karaage on Ramen?

The reason is simple.It is because Japanese like Karaage and Ramen.In particular, Japanese Workmen eats karaage and Ramen in a lunch frequently.And, the size is the king size because Japanese Workmen are hungry.So, it is Nissin Cup Noodle King Karaage.

Osumoji -Tsukasa no Ikkan-




Bad thought

In Japan it is a male‐dominated society.It is generally believed that a sushi world is male-dominated.There is a reason for it.Generally speaking, women has higher temperature than men.Therefore it is thought that sushi becomes bad when a woman makes sushi.There are not the scientific grounds at all.It is a bad thought in the world of just the Japanese food.
