Narreted by : Shosuke Tanihara

Every day, people would queue for over two hours for a bowl of ramen at Taishoken. What’s the celebrated chef’s secret ingredient?

There is no secret ingredient. In fact, as most Taishoken fans believe, it’s the charisma of owner Kazuo Yamagishi that attracted people from all around Japan to his modest shop.

His personality and love for his craft, combined with a precise mélange of flavours, combined to create perfection in each ramen bowl. This heart-warming documentary is not just for noodle fans, but for anyone who loves to be inspired by passionate people.
