Authentic Japanese food, ready for the world

RAKKAN began as a small, 4-seater restaurant in Nishiazabu, Tokyo, in 2011. But our business had its eyes set on making real Japanese soul food on an international scale, hence our motto, Authentic Japanese food, ready for the world. Since the beginning, we struggled to consistently serve high-quality soup that would live up to both our expectations and our customers' standards, which created hardships along the way. Regardless, we have now expanded our business to multiple locations, allowing us to hone our craft to satisfy our beloved customers. Without the customer's support, we wouldn't have reached this point with our restaurant so we always appreciate their encouragement. We established RAKKAN USA Inc followed by RAKKAN USA Franchise LLC, with a concept slogan of the "Healthy and Tasty, Our ramen is made with 100% plant-based broth." I strongly support non-animal products and a sustainable food system. We believe the choice we make about what we eat, where it comes from, and how it's made has a direct and powerful impact on the health of individuals, communities, and the planet.
