Born and raised in Japan, Sahori's comfort food is ramen. After spending a decade in small town America, she longs for the foods of her childhood (including many bowls of ramen). 

 

“Food is my love language” is the motto she lives by, and believes that dishes like ramen speak volumes of the care and attention to detail in Japanese cuisine. 

When Sahori is not touring, she loves to spend time with her family, and enjoys karate. She also loves listening to music, and even singing karaoke!

Born and raised in the U.K., Sianny has always harbored a deep love for all things Japanese. Engage her in conversation about anything related to Japan, and she'll happily natter away.

Sianny's journey into the heart of Japanese cuisine began with a single sip of ramen broth and the satisfying slurp of noodles on her first trip in Japan. From that moment, she was captivated, and her love affair with ramen began and now she’s on a quest to visit every prefecture to savour every offering of ramen. Her favorite style is Abura Soba (a soupless ramen).
