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.

Based on their website and advertising we were expecting a museum that explained the history and general information on ramen. We were sorely disappointed. Even though they charge admission, there is very little general museum-type information. Instead, it is really a consolidation of multiple small ramen restaurants where you can buy meals. Also, there is a gift shop where you... More

Interesting place. Due to the size of the museum, there is a capacity issue so you may end up waiting in line. Just go early and you will have no problems. There is really no one there to orient you so each tiny ramen shop will have a machine to pay. Once you select what you want then you will... More

So I didn't actually participate in the museum aspect of the place, but it really is a cool spot. It's like an underground city set during 1950's Japan and has ramen joint after ramen joint for you to choose from. That alone is worth the 300 yen entrance fee.

Wanting to find a nice ramen shop for dinner, I happened upon the reviews for this museum. It wasn't far from our hotel so we decided to give it a try. It's very close to the train station but there are no signs directing you to the museum. We walked a little too far and had to backtrack. They should... More

If you're interested in ramen, this is a pretty cool place to head. It's set up to look like a 50s Japanese street and it's lined with ramen joints. There are many different styles to try, so better come hungry. Some places here frown on people sharing ramen and there are even signs up saying it forbidden. I disagree with... More

The Shinyokohama Ramen Museum is significantly less museum-ey than a regular museum, but more of a small showcase of Japan's ramen cultural roots. There is a small exhibition on the ground floor (entrance/exit) of the museum, which shares space with the gift shop and a corner dedicated to.. toys. There is a large electric car race track that you can... More

Definitely a must go to attraction if you are stopping by shin Yokohama station as its only a 5 min walk. Cheap entry fee at 310 and there are numerous ramen stores to choose from. However there are not too much of a 'museum' section. Mainly just eateries and a gift shop and a old candy street. I tried the... More

It is a very small museum that is not easy to find. Inside the setting is a replication of the old Japan streets. All the restaurants serve different kinds of Ramen with different soup base. Every shop has its own coin machine for ordering ramen. Even though it was stated that each customer has to order a bowl of noodles,... More

A retro-styled place where you can eat various ramen from different regions. The place was crowded with locals and tourists during our visit, but the whole experience was amazing. As a tour group, our selection of ramen were already predetermined. We have tonkatsu ramen, which were delicious. There are automatic meal ticket if you want to buy another portion or... More

This museum is a couple of blocks from the subway. Pay you ticket and get stamped so you can leave and re-enter. This is important. Once you enter they have a few lockers on the left. The actual 'museum' is right in front of the entrance and really not worth your time. Just head downstairs to the restaurants. Understand, you're... More
