Ramune (ラムネ) is a Japanese carbonated soft drink, which to many Japanese is a symbol of the arrival of Summertime.

As the Summer approaches vendors set up stall, selling the distinctive bottles from ice-filled containers - the bottles opening with a distinctive pop as the marble top bursts open.

The flavour of ramune is tough to describe, it's origins are with plain old lemonade, but ramune has a much sweeter taste in it's original lemon-lime flavour.

While the original flavour is most commonly available, other flavours such as melon, strawberry, peach and even wasabi also exist.

Ramune is also a popular-flavour for sweets in Japan.
