KY eats – Ichikakuya Ramen, Podium, UOA Business Park

Always on the lookout for a good bowl of ramen, I was recently intrigued by taufulou’s rave reviews about Ichikakuya Ramen, probed into it a little bit and realized that it is located at UOA Business Park, that big office building across from SS15 over Federal Highway, which is quite a convenient place for me to get to, so I thought we’d give it a try.

A slowly decaying Shinto shrine and its truly incredible torii

Shinto shrines can be found everywhere in Japan. Some, of course, are large and grand like the famous Meiji Jingu in central Tokyo, but many more are small, simple structures — especially so outside the big cities. And yet while they are all unique, I’ve never seen one quite like this before, or at least not one with such incredibly striking torii gates.

I flew on a modern-day air taxi and saw how it's the perfect middle ground between driving and flying private for regional travel

Flying on a Hopscotch Air air taxi.
