My mistake, every sizable city around the Pacific. Hundreds of stores in China and Japan, a few sprinkled across the rest of Southeast Asia, Canada, US, Korea, Australia, etc. Nothing close to the authentic stuff though. The ones in Canal City are so amazing, as well as some of the low-profile stuff scattered across the country. A bowl of sapporo style = better than SR-007s IMO.
I had a lot of trouble finding good ramen places around Tokyo, probably because I had no idea what I was looking for.
This place in Akihabara was probably my favourite, we went there a few times, it was that good!
edit: yeah, I know that Ajisen place you're talking about, I've tried it once in Sydney. And yes, the noodles were complete garbage over here too.
