Nippon-ya

The place that had advertised for months (years?) on signs outside the construction that it would be an instant ramen emporium opened and reminds one of Narita Airport gift shops circa 1979. (Which, I guess, matches the atmosphere of that part of Japantown.) It's right next to the Andersen bakery. They have Osaka chocolate, Tokyo bananas (with sweet cream filling), and other stuff. I heard two stories from construction workers about why they didn't do ramen. One is that nearby restaurants that serve noodles complained. The other is that it was hard to put a kitchen in there. (Though I thought they would just sell it dry.)
