The First Los Angeles Ramen Yokocho Festival!! featuring twelve popular ramen shops from Los Angeles, San Jose, Las Vegas, Hawaii, and Japan! RAMEN Yokocho FESTIVAL, the biggest Ramen festival in the US! The first of its kind in Los Angeles. The most respected Ramen resturants will be lined up for all of us to taste.

How Do You Get Your Food
1) First stand in line outside the cultural area with everyone else.
2) Once you get in you have to stand in a line to pay for food tickets. You need to know how many tickets you need. You can pay by credit card or cash.
3) After you pay, you can pick which ramen line you want to stand in. Of course the farthest locations had the longest lines: Japan, Hawaii, etc.. the rest of the lines were shorter.
4) Go sit and eat, not too many seats. Some people got their ramen and stood in line again.
