There's a reason that ramen is one of Japan's most famous culinary creations. With its steaming, flavoursome broth, slender noodles and servings of thinly sliced pork — if you're keeping things traditional — it's a tasty, hearty dish that aficionados could easily eat each and every day. While slurping down a bowl like you're under doctor's orders may seem like a foodie fantasy, one one particular restaurant wants to make that all-ramen, all-the-time dream a reality. Behold, the ramen subscription service.

At Tokyo's Yaro Ramen from November 1, patrons can fork out a flat monthly fee, visit a store daily and get their fix. Yes, it's really that simple — and, it's also ridiculously affordable. Launched as part of the brand's new app, the subscription feature costs 8,600 yen, or less than AU$100. A bowl of regular tonkotsu ramen usually costs 780 yen, or around AU$9, so signing up for a daily bowl pays off pretty quickly.

Ramen lovers can choose between three different types, including one that comes sans broth if you're just in the mood for meat, veggies and noodles, from 15 different locations around the city. Other than needing to be in Tokyo to take advantage of the service, you do have to be fall between the ages of 18 and 38 to quality, in a deal targeted towards students and singles.

Coming hot on the heels of the country's new unlimited road trip pass for visiting travellers, you now have yet another reason to head to Japan — and, if you're jet-setting on a budget, your next holiday just got a whole lot cheaper.
