About the product

After a year and a half of hard work (and many, many bowls of noodles), we are proud to present Volume 02: Ramen. We explore the familiar carb-broth combo in its larger cultural context, while zeroing in on the specific experiences of ramen consumption — in other words, how people relate to ramen.

Produced in collaboration with a group of talented writers, recipe developers, and illustrators, the stories in this book run the gamut from the challenges of halal ramen and the rise of a tiny family-run noodle-making business, to meditations on searching for home in a bowl of ramen and the experience of eating ramen in space. 

With original cover art of hand-drawn noodles foil-stamped in gold, by Editor-at-Large Stanley Sun. 

Featuring: Ramen Young, Ayam Ya Karasuma, Food Diversity, Asakusa Kaikarou, 5AM Ramen, Naoko Yamazaki, Maruhiro, YABAI YABAI

Perfect bound softcover, 146 pages
Cover with original ramen illustration stamped with gold foil

Why we like it

The book is a window to how we can highlight traditional craft and strengthen the Japanese artisan community. We love the intention, thought and care the sankaku team put into each detail, from story to production.
