I can't ever imagine lining up to eat something as mundane as ramen or soba. Why do people do it? Stuff tastes the same wherever you eat it, surely?

Close to my working place, there is a Ramen shop which has every lunch time an incredible waiting line!

@Bernard

No, no...stuff tastes completely different in different stores.

Why do people do it? 

Very few seats and very short operating hours. If it's recently been written up in Hanako or appeared on Fuji TV, expect line-ups for the next few months.

The shop pictured was a teishoku place specializing on seafood. The prices are not too shabby either, I'd line up too if I had the chance. Apparently the place is really small so you'd really be forced to wait in line.

No social distancing. I do despair.

Typical childish comment, cut your bitterness with the world..

What does mundane Ramen got to do with a "bitternes with the world.?" Didn't you read another article about non-Japanese suffering discrimination amid COVID-19?
