Sano

This city is known for its Sano ramen, the soup is a light soy sauce and meat broth, but the real attraction are the noodles. Most shops feature a glassed-in area where you can see the dough being pounded in a traditional style with a bamboo pole and cut by hand. Sano is also home to a large outlet shopping mall and the headquarters of the Japan Cricket Association.
