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

Actually I don't really understand why they call this place as museum. The museum was so small! But the best part was the amusement park in the B1 and B2. It's like a city of ramen where you can taste authentic Japanese ramen from all over Japan. The decoration was so great so you can enjoy your ramen in different... More

This place was puzzling when you enter because you are confronted by a large Scalextric circuit, which has nothing to do with noodles, and a rather meaningless shop. When you descend the stairs, however, it all comes to life. This two storey edifice is a recreation of Tokyo circa early 1960s, filed with narrow alleyways which lead to different ramen... More

Not an easy place to find. Walk in and was amaze by this "underground" city. Old Japan and being from Singapore, I was fascinated by it because one of the store was actually selling candies and toys that I played while growing up. The ramen was really wonderful. The wait was not long. Wifi available as well.

This is an inexpensive and fun way to both sight-see and eat at an interesting place! I always make sure to bring friends, family and colleagues here when I show them around Yokohama. It's like Disneyland, but for ramen, and without the rides. They also sell old candies and snacks that you can't really find easily anywhere else.

Nice concept (Noodles from different areas of Japan). We visited Museum during Japanese holiday, and it was very crowded. However had good time.

Little tricky to find, but using the google maps street view helps a lot! Make sure you reserve plenty of time for this place. It is not a museum in its traditional form, such as lots of reading and seeing. It is a museum of tastes. You eat your way through this one. On weekends, each noodle shop is about... More

Our family didn't have to travel very far to visit this place but we did make a special trip and it was hard to find and not really worth it. What some reviewers have called the "food court" is actually a collection of individual storefronts of ramen shops from all over Japan and beyond that have been invited to set... More

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
