The ramen school was founded in 2012 for foreigners by the owner of a tonkotsu (pork bone) ramen restaurant near Yokohama Station, which is highly reviewed by local customers. The school is popular for its program combined with OJT (on-the-job training) at an actual restaurant and good support for students. It is also one of its strengths that you do not need an interpreter and can talk directly to the instructor in English.
