During my visit to the ShinYokohama Raumen Museum back in January, I came across a huge wall that listed all the different types of ramen in Japan. And I've been meaning to translate it since I got back, but never had the time to actually do it...until now. Feel free to click on the flags on the map below to see a little rundown of that type of ramen. The most intriguing stat is the total number of ramen-ya's in all of Japan--10,408. Daaam! It looks like I still have a loooong way to GO!
This is a straight translation of the wall in the museum and all credit goes to whoever created it, so please don't sue me for sharing. If you want to see a more informative explanation of these various types, I still suggest that you grab a copy of edjusted's ramen glossary and visit rameniac's ramen styles of japan--a perfect way to school your own noodle!

I'll eventually get around to adding the pics of the wall to this google map, so stay tuned for any updates!
