Ramen Fest?

   Love Ramen? If you love Japanese dishes and traditional Japanese stuff, then the 24th annual Japanese Fall Food Festival – or Ramen Fest, is something you should consider going to. This year it starts on Oct. 28 at the Buddhist Temple. Established in 1945, following the tradition of Japanese, Shin Buddhism temple has a Japanese heritage, but all services are primarily in English and most of the sangha members are non-Japanese.
