The Ramen Bracket on JAPAN Forward: Super 16

September in Japan is the beginning of the “autumn appetite” (shokuyoku no aki 食欲の秋). In honor of the season, we present the “JAPAN Forward Reader’s Ramen Championship” bracket.

 

There are four ramen options from four categories. Vote for one option in each pair (two pairs per category) in this round: Kotteri, Spicy, Assari, and Kawari. 

 

The top 16 ramen options have been narrowed down (with many difficult exclusions), and now it’s up to you, JAPAN Forward readers, to declare the best. Cast your votes every Wednesday from now until the final round, and collectively decide the Ramen Champion!
