The Bilingual Epic of a Ramen Adventurer

Food & Drink Ramen Deeper Japan Life in Japan Books Tokyo Greater Tokyo

Brian MacDuckston has devoured more than 1,000 bowls of ramen since arriving in Japan in June 2006. The noodles formed the fuel for his Ramen Adventures blog starting in October 2008, and in April 2015, Tokyo-based K&B Publishers Inc. released his first book, the appropriately entitled Brian’s Ramen Adventures, in which he introduces his 50 favorite spots in the Tokyo area.

Featuring maps, reviews, mouth-watering photos and Brian’s floating head offering the occasional tip, the Japanese-English book serves as a great ramen-lover’s guide to the city.
