Ramen shops in Tokyo (and across Japan) are teaming up to provide some much needed aid, in the form of both money and time, to the disaster in the North. For now, all the information is in Japanese. Check the links below if you can read 日本語. The gist is that a lot of shops will be sending staff up north to make some much needed comfort food for those in need.
Many shops will also have collection boxes, which will go directly to the Red Cross of Japan. When your change falls out of the ticket machine at your favorite ramen shop, drop it on in.
