There is a small Ramen shop I went to three times a week for lunch in Shinjuku-Gyoenmae. They make the best Tsukemen, as soon as my stuff is back in Kanagawa I'm going there. Its been way too long.

What's the name of it? Is it in Cherry Hill? If so, I've been there--nice place.

I'm not talking about pre-prepared stuff. I'm talking about going to a ramen restaurant. Whether it's a hole in the wall or a nice place or a street vendor, it'll be better than anything you can imagine from a package in the States, even if you got it at an import store.


The place we go is either in or around Fort Lee.

Mitsuya is the name your looking for, its ramen is good but not the same. The ramen resturant I go to in Tokyo makes the ramen itself, they import the wheat from Fukushima-ken. In Mitsuya you can buy alot of nice things, however you can't buy certain items. Such as Japanese rice. It is not exported to other countries, the same goes for other wheat products. Japanese rice is amazing, chinease and korean is ok, thai rice is bad, indian rice is bad, the differences become very apparent after long exposure to Japanese rice.

You DIDN'T HAVE to do anything!!! You're not only killing it with YouTube, dude. You are killing yourself! ending it all Don't do this! Life is too precious! Take some of the advice that has been dished out to you. I don't know. Maybe you just don't get it. Maybe you are truly addicted and can't stop yourself? Did somebody from SAA contact you yet about the "program"? We have a nice, relaxing island for you to recover on... Wink

Albeit the clip was funny for like the first 30 seconds, you are really "yari-suguing" it with the YouTube posts.

This is a "modern" thing, but directly related to Ranald McDonald, and interesting:

February 26, 2007 (Reuters) -- TOKYO - NTT DoCoMo Inc., Japan's top mobile phone operator, plans to offer electronic payment services at McDonald's Holdings Co. (Japan) outlets, with special promotions for some users.

The companies said in a joint statement on Monday they will set up a 300 million yen ($2.48 million) joint venture in July.

More and more Japanese are using mobile phones equipped with an electronic chip that lets them swipe their handsets over special readers to pay for train tickets and snacks at retailers.

Operators are also working with financial companies to offer credit cards and other services to retain users.

McDonald's Japan will hold a 70 percent stake in the joint venture, with DoCoMo owning the rest.

JR already does this with their "Suica" card, which you can use at conbini's in addition to it being like a train station "fastpass". You can also use your cellphone if you get it setup right as a Suica.

That Suica card is helpful, I wish they would do that with the Odakyu Sen so I dont have to buy two passes.

I agree, since I primarily use Odakyuu or Den-en Toshi.

People, I hate to tell you, as your Daimyo. This is getting truly, really off-topic. I think that if you want to continue discussing McDonald's and other modern Japanese topics, you need to take this to the "Modern Japan" forum.
