About Ramen Samurai

The Ramen Samurai subscription box delivers a total of 8 ramens, featuring 5 different types each month, directly from Japan. The operators, who are Japanese, handpick authentic, high-quality ramen from renowned shops across Japan. These exclusive ramens are only available in Japan, offering subscribers a taste of rare finds. The selection primarily focuses on tonkotsu ramen, a flavor popular among international palates. This service provides ramen enthusiasts the perfect opportunity to enjoy a variety of flavors from the comfort of their home each month, making it an ideal offering for those who love ramen.

The Ramen Samurai subscription service brings subscribers a curated collection of 8 unique ramens each month, showcasing 5 distinct varieties, all shipped directly from Japan. Curated by Japanese operators, this service selects genuine, premium ramen from famous eateries throughout Japan. These ramens, exclusive to Japan, give subscribers access to uncommon and sought-after flavors. With a focus mainly on the globally beloved tonkotsu ramen, this selection caters to international tastes.

A key feature of our ramen subscription boxes is that we carefully select ramen that Japanese only change in Japan. Other ramen boxes are often Asian noodle boxes and therefore contain ramen from countries other than Japan, such as Korea, Thailand, and China. Our service, however, deals only with authentic Japanese ramen. Only Ramen Samurai offers high quality ramen.

You must check the notations on your ramen. However, these are written in Japanese and need to be translated. Therefore, we recommend using Google Lens to take a picture with your smart phone and translate it.

It's advisable to account for up to 2 weeks in case of delays caused by the carrier or adverse weather conditions.
