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. « less

It's a bit hard to find (we had to ask for directions from some locals and even then, ended up going around in a circle before arriving at the correct location.) After paying to enter, we received some brochures in English. There are 3 floors. The top floor, where the entrance is at, has a souvenir shop (with a disappointingly... More

Under £2 to get in and a bizarre place that I enjoyed a lot more than I anticipated. My wife who is Japanese had visited many years ago and I think this is why she suggested we do with our daughters aged 11 & 12. The ground floor hosts the shop and so you descend to 2 basement levels. Both... More

If you're coming from the other part of the world and want to try good ramen, then this is the place! To be honest, I have eaten a lot of ramen in the past and the ramen you'll experience in this place is not to be fascinated about, but it's the taste of ramen that will come from different parts...

The museum is worth the 300 yen admission price. The bottom floor is a beautifully immersive environment that transports you to another place and time. The ramen itself, however, is quite average and nothing to write home about. You can find ramen that is leaps and bounds better than the ramen here all over the area.

We love Ramen noodles so this pilgrimage was an important part of our travel in Japan. Unless you are traveling by Shinkansen, Shin-Yokohama is not that convenient to get to. Then if you are not using then subway, to walk to the museum, you must first get to the subway level and use the walkway and exit no 8. Still... More

There is a fee to enter, but that is about the only thing similar to being a museum. There is a little food market, and slot car race track (didn't really make sense), and a food court with ramen restaurants. I definitely wouldn't suggest going if you weren't going to visit one of the restaurants. The inside looks nice but... More

Having read about this museum, I had actually saved a half day to visit it during my stay in Tokyo Despite the positive reviews, it wasn't as grand as I expected it to be. First of all, the museum is not a museum, the term "Ramen Food Court" would be a little more accurate. Secondly, the actual museum is a... More

The museum is actually a food amusement park located in ShinYokohama. The museum highlights the Japanese ramen noodle soup. Within the museum are branches of famous ramen restaurants from Kyushu to Hokkaido. There is also a souvenir shop selling ramen bowls, cooking utilities and instant ramen packages. From time to time, there are performances by artistes, like magicians or musicians.

We enjoyed performance and kids bought some balloon from the small sweet shop and they love it. Hope parking fee gets much cheaper. I went several shop to taste Ramen but over all, Ikemen was the best.
