Ramen is one of the main staples here in Japan. Funnily enough its not a real Japanese food. It originally came from China but I think a whole generation of Salarymen would die from lack of food if ramen disappeared :) This statue was outside one of the more eccentric ramen shops I've been to. Uuuuuuuugh. He looks kinda constipated which to me doesn't seem like the best advertisement if it were MY ramen shop!
