Keanu Reeves was in Japan again, this time eating ramen. And from our interviews, we learned that Keanu was also renewing his “good guy anecdote” here.



What ramen did Keanu Reeves eat in Ginza?


Keanu Reeves, who has been making fans all over Japan anxious to meet him on the street, was spotted in the Ginza area of Tokyo on February 22 and 23, and in Tochigi Prefecture on February 27. However, more information about his stay in Japan has emerged, and it turns out that he was enjoying ramen again this time.


Keanu has been to Japan many times, starring in “John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum,” which had a scene inspired by yakuza culture, and appearing in several films with many Japanese cast members. He is also known as a big ramen lover, and there are many ramen restaurants he has visited in the past.


One such place Keanu likes so much that he has been there many times… Kushu Jangara!

Keanu Reeves, who never forgets to show respect anytime, anywhere.


When Keanu visited Japan for the release of “John Wick: Chapter 2,” he ate “Kobonshan” at the Akasaka branch, and this time he visited the Ginza branch for the first time on February 25. This time, however, he visited the Ginza branch for the first time on February 25. According to Jangara’s website, “Kobonshan” is “a combination of mild tonkotsu (pork bone) soup boiled slowly and homemade ma-yu (burnt garlic oil). The ingredients are pork bones and chicken bones. The roots are in Kumamoto ramen. The ramen is characterized by “especially flavorful and slightly sweet taste.


Keanu’s visit to Japan this time was not that much talked about considering that he is a big international star, but it turned out that there were many fans waiting for him in front of Jangara Ginza restaurant at that time. So his driver promptly tried to walk him to his car as Keanu was leaving the store, but Keanu did not forget to be respectful.


He stopped the driver once, went towards the manager of the Jangara Ginza store, shook his hand, and then left the store!


What a wonderful gesture by the great star Keanu. That is why he is known as one of the nicest people in Hollywood. Incidentally, he is currently working on a documentary about the entry of Brawn Grand Prix, founded by Ross Brawn, into F1 for the first time in 2009 after Honda withdrew from F1 in 2008. Since he is believed to have visited the Honda Collection Hall during his visit to Japan, it is likely that his main purpose is related to the documentary production.


On the other hand, since he was spotted in the Ginza area for several days, we wonder if he spent this time relaxing except for production-related work, rather than walking around and sightseeing in Japan.
