THE BEGINNING OF THE RAMEN EMPIRE JOURNEY

What is the meaning of "Tomochan"?

TOMOCHAN RAMEN EXPRESS

is founded by Akiko Okamoto. She wants to share the authentic Japanese delight to the Filipino community and to the rest of the world at reasonable price without sacrificing its quality and taste. Okamoto took the bold step of the journey by opening its first store in Angeles City, Pampanga on July 2017. She believes and lives with the undying dream that Tomochan Ramen Express will be the new "daily ramen" that every individual would consider as their ultimate comfort food.

The company thought of something that will be recognized as "Solid Friendship" and a bond of endearment.

"TOMO"

was derived from the word Tomodachi, which is a Japanese term for 'a friend' .

"CHAN"

is being used for Miss/little children/close friends and sometimes even used for couples/loved ones.Thus,

TOMOCHAN

is a solid friendship that promotes love, loyalty and dedication.

Seichoyo Group Inc. envisioned Tomochan Ramen Express to become the next symbol of Japanese culture in the Philippines as the company believes that establishing Tomochan will further cultivate and strengthen the JaPinoy friendship by making authentic Japanese cuisine more affordable and reachable to every Filipino.
