Experience a year in the life of self-taught Japanese ramen master Masamoto Ueda. Soak in the nostalgia at his legendary ramen shop, Bizentei, where the gregarious master has been serving his traditional Tokyo-style ramen to die-hard fans for more than forty years. And tag along with him and some of his regulars on their weekend culinary adventures across Japan’s picturesque countryside — harvesting gourmet pears, digging up bamboo shoots, mountain yams, and more.
