Lesson 1: "ramen roots"

Ramen really got its start in the late 1800s. More Chinese immigrants came to Japan around this time...and they brought with them delicious noodle dish recipes.

These recipes were adjusted and eventually evolved into ramen.  The first ramen shop ever, "Rairaiken" opened in 1910 in Tokyo. Ramen is quite a young dish!
