The Super Late 2009 Ramen Roundup

At the 115 day point in my stay in Japan I compiled all the ramen joints I had eaten at in this post. Obviously I didn't stop going to ramen shops at that point. In the end, to the best of my recollection, I visited 49 different ramen shops in 2009. All the shops were in Japan, except for one bowl of Dandanmian I had in Beijing.

The full list is under the cut, feel free to ask me of my opinion on any of the shops.

The general location of the shop is in brackets, shops with multiple locations indicates all the different branches where I've eaten.
I have visited shops with the ★ mark at least twice, and I highly recommend shops with the ☆ mark.
Finally, the list is in no particular order. It's actually the order in which I remembered the shops.

The soup was quite awesome with the numbing spiciness of the Sichuan pepper you don't find too often in Japan. Unfortunately the noodles left a lot to be desired. Not sure what the noodles were exactly but they had very minimal presence in the mouth and did not complement the soup very well.
