Project Description

KIRAMEKI RAMEN

Kirameki is a popular ramen bar in Kyoto’s Ichijoy-ji ramen row, specializing in thick Taiwanese-style “maze soba” noodles and ramen served in a rich and deeply flavoured chicken broth.

I captured the buzz, passion and artistry involved as the cooks prepped their fresh ingredients from scratch to create broth, noodles and a daily special.

This is one of 16 stories on small businesses in Japan, in collaboration with Mint Images. Retouching by Stephen Johnson.
