Owner description: Shin-Yokohama Raumen Museum was founded on March 6th, 1994 as the world's first food-themed amusement park. From the start, our concept has been to be the one-stop place to enjoy the flavors of this national dish from renowned shops across Japan without stepping on a plane. To commemorate our 20th anniversary, we've expanded on the Japan-wide concept to being one that covers areas worldwide, delivering even more of the attraction and fascination of ramen to one and all. Our nine ramen shops are showcased in a street-scape replication from the year 1958, Japan. It was in this year that the world's first instant ramen was invented.

This museum could keep you occupied all day. As an instant ramen lover, this museum was a real treat. The art was interesting and unique, the story told was inspiring. Be sure to visit the restaurant upstairs! It's like Epcot for ramen! There's about a dozen different countries' ramen represented, and the prices are reasonable. I ate 6 bowls of... More

If you are in the area, its a must. However, I would not go out of the way to see this. The Ramen is delicious we tried 4 different kinds. Everyone has to order a bowl but they have half orders as well. You have to place your order from machines and it's all in Japanese no English... We went... More

It's funny reading reviews of this Yokohama landmark and seeing that people are disappointed it's not a museum. Welcome to Japan, friends. Not everything is always as it seems! :) The Ramen Museum is an excellent place for visitors who are interested in Japanese culture and/or cuisine, but may only be doing the standard Tokyo/Kyoto/Osaka tour. With ramen stalls from... More

The place is much smaller than we’d imagined. Once we entered the so called museum after paying 300 Yen each, there is the museum shop with all things Ramen and a Slot Car Track. Yes, you read it right…. A slot car track! We made our ways down stairs to find a replicated city street with night city skyline. It... More

Not really a fan of ramen but it was possibly the best I've tasted so far. Definitely worth a visit if you're a foodie!

Stumbled upon this by mistake, thinking it was the Cup Noodle Museum. This must be a common mistake because the staff at the entrance immediately whipped out a map for the other museum. We decided to head in for a meal anyway since it was supposed to house specialty ramen shops from all over Japan. The place is set up... More

Early December-2014 Visit can be completed in 2 hours, including a bowl of ramen, providing crowd is not an issue. Parking is available on the same building, it seems but a cheaper parking is available adjacent to the museum though space is limited. Decor in the museum is nice as many noted here. There is a little shop offering local... More

A local brought us to visit this museum but we thought it was only so-so. The interior decoration was nice and it made us felt like we have traveled back in time. There were many different ramen stores to try out, but the only problem is that we are not allowed to share. Each adult is expected to order one... More

I've never really been into Ramen before, however now I'm obsessed with it. This was the best place I visited in Yokohama. Once you enter the museum you think it's going to be kind of boring, but then you enter an underground world of old Japan and Ramen stalls. I loved the atmosphere and loved the Ramen and looking forward... More

You must visit if you are a raumen lover! very special and good for shopping for raumen bowls and food. Don't miss to visit one of the great raumen restaurants in the museum. I suggest to go there on weekday , the queue for restaurant is much much short. I visited at weekend and wait for a table for 2... More
