Japan is looking for Ramen Ambassadors -- non-Japanese people residing in Japan who love ramen and want to share their love with others! They don't mind standing in line for hours (even in sweltering summer heat, freezing winter temperatures, pouring rain, you name it) to savor a steaming bowl of ramen and then report on their findings to the world.
As you may know, ramen currently has the honor of being almost as popular among visitors to Japan as sushi! And, just as sushi can be found in almost all corners of the globe, we want to publicize the glories of ramen so it becomes just as ubiquitous!
Remember, applicants for Ramen Ambassador must be foreign residents of Japan. If you have friends or family whom you think might be interested in applying also, pass this information along to them! We want to spread the word about the splendors of ramen, and you can help!
The deadline for applications is September 9, 2012 (Sunday). Successful applicants will be announced in October. To apply and to read about terms and conditions, please visit here.
