Here’s what they had to say about this particular variety – “Kuromayu (black sesame oil) has a strong disinctive flavor of garlic and black sesame. Added to a base tonkotsu pork bone base, this is a distinct flavor mix originating from the Kumamoto prefecture on Kyushu Island. Kyushu island is best known as the origina of tonkotsu ramen typically refered to as Hakata-style ramen.”
