The Economics of Ramen Shops in Japan

I’ve set off the YouTube algorithms somehow, to start showing me more and more videos of food preparation. A lot of Asian street food stuff, kitchens in China and Japan. The videos themselves are really stunning in both their quality and length (they tend to average 45+ minutes and go into tremendous detail following the chefs around, with their process).

I’m slowly starting to understand why some folks enjoy watching food-related videos. I’m not quite at the stage yet where I’m interested in watching someone eat food (much in the same way I’m not that interested in watching someone else play video games). Yet.

Came across this video on BoingBoing and got sucked in. It’s not quite all about food production, and looks a bit more into the economics and business of running a Ramen shop in Japan.
