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 is a great way to try a bunch of different ramen in one place. It is cluster of ramen restaurants from all over the country. It's small and crowded but worth it. There are many restaurants in the main square and then some additional restaurants upstairs. On the top level there's a gift shop and tiny museum. Every restaurant... More

"Museum" is probably the wrong word to describe this place. There is a cover charge (JPY300, for adults;JPY150 for kids). For this and other reasons, it's more like a "theme park"; however, your taste buds are the only things that will be in for a thrill. The upstairs has a shop, but the basement houses a beautifully-recreated old Yokohama street... More

The upper floor gives you the history of Ramen in Japanese, so skip that and visit the multiple restaurants downstairs to experience the different types of genuine Ramen in a preWW2 Japan setting. The food is delicious and you can even buy the ingredients to make your own.

We went to Yokohama for a short bullet train ride and had our late lunch taken at the Ramen Museum. The place was not busy probably due to the time we have arrived (around 2:30 pm) so we were a bit lucky to have the luxury of looking into all of the restaurants before choosing where to eat :) There...

this is a gathering of ramen shops. not a museum. similar to ramen stadium in hakata's canal city shopping centre, only that was free to enter. there are no exhibits, no history. the shops area are made to look nice, old and quaint with night sky. they even wish you a good night. but that's about it. the ramen is...

I mean there's ALOT of good food in Japan. And great ramen stalls all over. Do you need to go here for a good bowl of ramen? No. Just an experience - been there done that? Perhaps. If you've got nothing to do. It was a rainy day. I had nothing to do. I thought I'd take a train to... More

A lot of work has gone into making the old store fronts authentic, I would have spent more time here if it wasn't so busy but I guess that should be expected around lunch time :-).

There are many ramen shop to choose. I really wanted to try all of them but too full to do so. Some restaurants provide mini bowl, but the problem is the machines do not have English. If you are lucky , there will be Japanese visitors around you that you can ask for help.

The person that created this idea is a pure genius. You need to pay to get in the "museum" and then find a restaurant in there that you want to try and select and pre-pay the item from a vending machine that is assigned to the restaurant. All the places here have a regular bowl and small bowls of ramen.... More
