It’s been an amazing year for Ramen Adventures. Ramen in Tokyo is progressively getting better and better, in my opinion, and the ramen scene overseas is following suit.
I don’t like live-posting anything, but dozens of people have told me that I need to be on Instagram. So I’ve been posting five shots every Friday, with some random bits of culinary Japan thrown in throughout the week for good measure.
I’m actually doubled up on YouTube at the moment. My Ramen Adventure channel, produced by Yummy Japan, has been a bit slow of late. I’m hoping to change that in the coming year, with my goal of 50 videos in sight.
I’m also working with #tokyoextra, produced by Tokyo Broadcasting. These collaboration videos are broadcast over the air and on YouTube live on Sunday nights in Japan. I’ve been teaming up with some of the girls from AKB48 to introduce a variety of shops.
If either of these channels appeals to you, please subscribe. The producers of these videos were expecting that a high traffic blog like Ramen Adventures would mean hundreds of thousands of views, but that isn’t really the result.
I’m on Twitter @ramenadventures, but this is just an automatic system that tweets when a post goes live.
Facebook is where I post about events, my favorite bowls, and where I have the most direct interaction.
