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.

It's not so much a museum, there is only about 2 panels explaining the origin of different ramen from different parts of Japan.. mostly in Japanese so don't expect to understand if you don't know nap language. there's a shop selling some Ramen and souvenir.. and a small car racing setup (it's just like a big toy size, not huge...

First the admission, which I don't think they should charge because the museum part is really not that impressive. Second, they did not tell us that there is senior discount for visitors 60 and above (100 Y vs. 310.) So 7 of us seniors overpaid to get in even with the help of their staff when purchasing the tickets. Now... More

This place surprised me. I thought it was just gonna be another boring old museum, but it was a lot more than that. They had 2 levels that recreated 1940's/1950's Japan (hard to say exactly when) that was amazing. Such a unique atmosphere. Tip: Come on an empty stomach and order the half size portions from a few different places.... More

This isn't so much a museum as it is a culinary adventure. The entry floor has a few spaces on the wall dedicated to briefly describing the history of ramen in Japan and how it varies from region to region. There is also a shop on this floor. Downstairs is where the action is... The main event is a replica... More

I don't want to give the museum a 1 but it is hard to rate it higher. We arrived one Friday afternoon and queued briefly to get in. It was ¥300 each. Once inside we could not move for huge queues outside every restaurant. We quickly decided that the experience was not what we expected. We joined a queue but... More

Since 2 -minute noodles are well known around the world, it is good to visit a museum that shows its beginnings. A good place for kids to roam and try out various things! If you don't like noodles - instant noodles especially - don't waste your time.

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
