This picture is few years old .... This picture is few years old ... It is in Asakusa, Tokyo
290 yen is an old price.
Here in the US, we often spend $10+ for a bowl of ramen. Plus tip and tax makes it $12 ~ $14. Of cause you can find some expensive ramen in Japan, but ramen in general are considered cheap and fast.

Some of the places I go, a bowl of Ramen starts 350 yen ... many places sell their base ramen for 500 yen.

This is not something you can find in Japan

thread

You cannot find huge meals like in the USA in Japan. That might be one of the reasons people in Japan in general are smaller than the people in the US. In addition, people rely on the public transportation and do o drive as much in the cities in Japan. That contribute to more expertise.
