Yakult’s Munetaka Murakami “Buys Cup Ramen Bombs” on the First Day of Samurai Japan
The WORLD BASEBALL CLASSIC 2023 will be held in March next year. He hit a home run in a training game against Australia on November 9. He has now hit an astounding 11 hits and four home runs in three games, and he is maintaining the momentum from the pennant race in which he became the youngest player in history to win the Triple Crown.
I saw Murakami at a convenience store on November 3. It was the first night of the Samurai Japan training camp. According to a shopper at a convenience store near the hotel where he was staying
Murakami-san bought a huge amount of cup ramen noodles all by himself. No matter how much he likes ramen, it is hard to believe that he would eat that much by himself, and I wondered if he had been sent on an errand by his seniors.
Murakami is from Kumamoto Prefecture, which is famous for its ramen, and has been known to be a big fan of ramen since he was a child.
In 2019, when Murakami won the Rookie of the Year award, the Murakami-produced “Gogo Ramen,” which was sold inside Jingu Stadium, was even sold at a popular ramen store.”
Murakami’s source of power may not be limited to cup ramen, but it seems certain that indulging in his “favorite food” contributes to keeping him in great shape.
