There has been quite some buzz on the internet about a huge number of Thai Buddhist monks queueing up for Ramen noodles in Japan. The place they are lining up for is Shin-Yokohama Raumen Museum. This is a food-themed amusement park specializing in ramens, where you can enjoy many famous ramens from all over Japan. It is popular because you can try many kinds of ramen at once (not that you can eat that many anyways).


The photo was posed on the facility’s official FaceBook page. The comment said “Today we had many Thai Buddhist monks over.”, but that’s all the information were able to get. Japanese ramen seems to be popular everywhere in the world. If the Thai Buddhist monks are addicted to it, there is a big chance it will get even more popular in the world.
