Probably nothing to worry about as caterpillars posted way back in September, and no one has said anything (likely everyone for the most part recognized nonsense at its face-- good job!-- the post sounds a lot like I did when I was 19, sophomore in college with just enough new knowledge to be dangerous), but the mistaken information given bears correction. While ramen may indeed have originated in China or from Chinese peoples, the Japanese have really taken it and made it their own, and it can safely be called a Japanese food, even if not exclusively so. Plenty of Japanese eat and enjoy ramen, and not just the poor folk. Sure, it probably won't be served at a wedding feast or to the emperor on his birthday (unless he really wants it...), but it's popular, and ramen shops abound. Many varieties/brands can be bought in Japanese grocery stores. There's even a museum dedicated to it in Yokohama (worth a visit, in my opinion-- reachable by train from Tokyo with a bit of effort/transfers, and not too hard to find). While Wikipedia may not be the ultimate authority, it seems to be a generally recognized credible source if you don't want to take my word for it. English and Japanese articles follow:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ramen
http://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E3%83%A9%E3%83%BC%E3%83%A1%E3%83%B3

While at it, there are other rolls (or "makizushi" 巻き寿司 if you prefer) to be found in Japanese sushi besides those three listed, although yes, most of the roll concoctions seen in American sushi joints are not traditionally Japanese (but can be plenty delicious in their own right). True enough also, there's more to Japanese cuisine besides sushi, yakisoba etc... Too bad it can be hard to find, it seems, outside more cosmopolitan centers-- Reno, NV has plenty of sushi, but I don't think there's a real Japanese restaurant (i.e. menu with things other than the "usual" sushi, noodles, bento etc..) to be seen here as far as I know...

Sushi. I have always loved it! Even since a young age.

I had some sushi in the city the other day with my dad and that night we both had terrible stomach aches and I was too sick to go back to camp the next day

I'm hesitating between authentic ramen and shabu-shabu...

Hmm... I usually like Chirashi, or sushi and sashimi in general. I would like to try okonomiyaki some time, but none of the restaurants here make them.

Honestly though, if I were to eat noodles, I'd rather go to Korean or Vietnamese noodle shops. lol

Yoshinoya and all the other beef bowl chains. And those 3 pack sandwiches you get from 711 and holdings I lived on those for 3 years.

Looking back I wish I had been more varied on what I ate while I had the cash but those sandwiches were seriously so good and convenient. 1 of those and a few lifeguard chu-his when they still had them was the best way to start the weekend.

Also never thought I'd like Tuna Corn mayo pizza but it rules.

....That pizza sounds incredibly interesting, I may have to order some Japanese mayo and make one.

You sure you don't mean 90 minutes? whatever one your eating at your getting ripped off. Try the one on like the 2nd floor of that building with the two devils off of blue street.
