Let’s go to the lower level of the Shinyokohama Ramen Museum, where they’ve basically taken three levels of basement and turned it into a meticulous recreation of a block of Tokyo from Showa era 33 (1958), which was the year they invented instant noodles. There are movie posters, actors playing policemen and street vendors, fortune tellers, and, among other things, NINE ramen restaurants. The restaurants are all small versions of famous ramen restaurants from all over Japan, highlighting regional specialties and ingredients. It’s AMAZING. SUGOI. I’ll try to get into a little more detail about it in the next comic.
Sorry for skipping the comic on Friday, you guys. It’s a little bit of a long story – Niles got minor surgery (he’s fine) – but it was just a really long and emotionally exhausting day and I just didn’t have it in me to do a comic. To make up for it, I did a bunch of anxiety-driven comics while hanging out in the family surgery waiting area, and I put them up here.
