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

Essentially, this is a mall or food court with a few differences: The interior is pre-war Japan with a few modern touches. It hosts a few of the best Ramen restaurants from all over Japan. Lastly, you have to pay an entrance fee. Unless you are Ramen-mad and you need to taste every form of this watery soup concoction, don't... More

It was a very nice surprise to go to this place! It is a unique location for Ramen lovers! There is a interesting store at the street level with everything for ramen and then downstairs, there are many ramen restaurants, in a incredible atmosphere. All of them were full with big queues, but since people eat ramen very fast (and... More

The museum is interesting. It's close to ShinYokohama station within walking distance. There's a nominal fee but you can usually get a discount from the hotel you're saying at nearby if you ask the reception. Once inside, you learn about different ramen from various regions. There's a little souvenirs shop next to the museum. The museum itself is not very... More

When you enter the museum, you are greeted with a room selling items related to Ramen and the like. The real deal is the floor below where they have (re)created 1960s Japan complete with street performers and several restaurants serving a variety of ramen. Interesting and definitely worth a visit if you're in the area but not worth going out... More

ramen is kind of the symbol of japan and also one of my favorite food. Frankly speaking,brand in this building is not better than others I found in yokohama or tokyo, but what I saw is more than eating. Museum make the street just like the way they look like in 1960s.really enjoyed this time travel experience.

Honestly, not worth the trip as you'll find much better ramen restaurants elsewhere in Yokohama/Tokyo. However, if you're into the 1950s décor‎, which many people do love, and your time is limited and you want a couple half servings to try different types, certainly go for it. Customer service is great.

The Ramen Museum is a "must-visit" EVERY time I come to Japan. One tip: Never, ever come on a Saturday or Sunday. (It gets way too crowded.) I usually buy a 3-month pass, which is like only 300 yen ($3) more than a one-day pass. Going down to the lower floors, you'll step back in time to a Tokyo street... More

Ramen was born in Yokohama; the place can get pretty crowded on weekends but it's a must-try for ramen fans. Various styles of ramen from around Japan are represented, and the decor represents the heyday of Yokohama with its artisan building facades from the war era. You can even buy some of the ramen in box sets to take home... More
