If you ask Japanese what their guilty-pleasure food is, they would most commonly answer “ramen” without hesitation. Though Japanese people are known to keep a healthy diet, most families still love to have a stash of the foam cups of instant ramen in the pantry. Take me, for example, craving for ramen hits me occasionally, most often than not in the middle of the night.

I grew up in Japan where taking off your shoes before entering a house is a habitual practice. Japanese houses are designed to have a designated entryway just inside the door that we call genkan. The genkan acts as a boundary between the inside and the outside. At the genkan, we take off our shoes, store them in the built-in shoe cabinet or leave them there if you are a guest, and put on indoor slippers to proceed into the house.
