A foreigner has been fortunate enough to eat some noodles at his local ramen shop owing to a “Gaijin welcome pre-6pm” policy.

“I can’t believe they let me eat noodles, even though I was raised abroad,” said the gaijin.

The shop owner was unavailable for comment; however, the fear of anyone born outside of Japan starting a wild party after 6 p.m. naturally justifies a ban on foreigners eating ramen at night.

It is a well-known fact that foreigners in Japan will rush to their nearest konbini for a Strong Zero as soon as the clock strikes 18 o’clock.

“All I know is, gaijin and noodles do not mix after dark,” said one staff member who wishes to remain anonymous.

More to come.


  1. We had a place like the next to my first school when I was an ALT. The staff had never noticed the no gaijin sign because it was small and high up until I tried to have lunch with a teacher. They talked with the owner but he refused to remove it. So, God Bless ’em, they stopped going there for lunch or after work. The shop closed about a year later.
