The Hill-Side "Tokyo Ramen Joints" souvenir bandana serves as an all-in-one travel guide / map / souvenir / handkerchief / conversation starter, featuring our favorite shoyu ramen joints in Tokyo. It's the perfect travel companion for your next trip to Japan.
The bandana artwork was hand-drawn by our partner Hisashi, a co-founder of The Hill-Side and the one who first introduced us to the wild world of Japanese ramen. When we travel to Japan we eat ramen at all hours of the day; in unmarked spots at the end of dark alleys, at famous places with long lines, at small kiosks on train platforms, and at word-of-mouth food trucks. Among all the ramen we've consumed in Tokyo, these ten are our favorites.
- Illustrations by Hisashi Oguchi, one of The Hill-Side's co-founders - Comes with a fold-out hang tag that lists the name and address of all 10 restaurants, along with some advice or history about each one - Empty checkbox next to each ramen joint so you can mark them off as you "collect them all" - Vintage style printed image bleeds through to the back side of the fabric - 100% cotton - Dimensions: 20" x 20"
