Rokurinsha in the Supermarket?

Update - The Rokurinsha nama packages can be found at Life and Queen's Isetan so far. Tried it. Suffice it to say that I wasn't crazy about the Rokurinsha overall. The broth package, even with the powder put in, didn't taste significantly different from other shoyu nama ramens at the supermarket. Here are some pictures, I actually enjoyed the Mazesoba better, the Mazesoba was't that different from Junk Garage or similar, and it was even available at the Family Mart.

Million-dollar idea: the Junk Garage people should put their sauce in a bottle and sell it....
