Have you heard of the ramen chain “Ramen Yamaoka-ya”?
It is located throughout Japan, from Hokkaido to Kyushu, and is rather a minor ramen restaurant in Honshu.
Yamaoka-ya is characterized by its long business hours, with some stores open 24 hours a day, and by opening stores in suburban locations.
In the large area of the province, transportation has to travel long distances. In addition to their business hours, these restaurants are easy for truck drivers to use, with prominent red signs and large roadside parking lots.
You order by buying a meal ticket on a touch panel.
If you are a JAF member, just show your membership card (card or app) to the store and you can get 2 pieces of chashu pork or a seasoned egg as a free topping!
Many people forget about the existence of JAF membership even though they joined JAF when they bought a car. In fact, JAF membership has many unexpected uses, such as discounts at leisure facilities and restaurants, in addition to vehicle trouble.
