I really enjoyed Words Bubble Up Like Soda Pop, a Japanese animated film available on Netflix. The setup is as old as time: haiku-writing boy collides with live-streaming girl in a shopping centre built on the site of an old vinyl-pressing plant. Energetic, colourful animation that makes a lot of anime look pastel by comparison.
(Linking to the Japanese site because there isn’t an official one in English.)
Tampopo (1985) is a Japanese film about a ramen shop that was something of a cult movie amongst my friends in our student days. Here‘s an early scene were a young Ken Watanabe gets taught the correct way to eat ramen.
