Ramen addicts can now get a quick salty tonkotsu ramen fix thanks to JR’s Acure line of vending machines.

Created alongside Ippudo Ramen, Koku to Umami no Ippudo Tonkotsu Ramen Soup (Rich flavor and Umami Ippudo Tonkotsu Ramen Soup) is made to replicate Ippudo’s signature broth but has been adjusted to reduce sodium and oil so it is palatable in the absence of noodles and toppings.

This drink will be available at all JR East train stations in Japan for a price of ¥150 JPY ($1.40 USD) and fills the gap for late-night commuters that have been drinking and can’t quite stomach a full bowl of ramen but want a hearty, flavorful pick-me-up — especially since the pandemic has shortened the operating hours of ramen shops.
