Everyone loves ramen noodles and everyone knows that real ramen doesn't come in a disposable cup with just hot water: it comes in a deep bowl called a donburi, which allows the aromas from the broth and the ingredients to fill your nose as you are gulping down the noodles and toppings. The Spirited Away Porcelain Ramen Noodles Bowl is exactly that: a 210 x 82 mm (8.3 x 3.2") donburi, made of porcelain from Gifu Prefecture, home of some of Japan's most revered pottery traditions.
But there's one more tradition that the Spirited Away Porcelain Ramen Noodles Bowl pays tribute to: that of anime, particularly the work of Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli, and more particularly, their 2001 gem Spirited Away. The enchanted town where the film takes place has many restaurants serving ramen in bowls exactly like this and it is this town and its creatures that are the decorative motifs on the bowl. The dragon Haku, the spirits No-Face, Onama-Sama, and Otori-Sama, and various signs from the town's buildings immerse you in the world fo the anime as you eat, bringing a whole new dimension to your ramen meals.
