About
We open 365days. 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.

This is quite a unique ramen noodle museum. We went late during the day and it was not crowded and we were able to view the exhibits for as long as we wanted. It is quite a different experience from the Cup of Noodle museum that we went to on another visit to Yokohama. The gallery level gave a good intro into the history of ramen noodles in Japan and it was where we finally discovered what umami was all about. I believe my favorite part was on the basement level where there was an interesting recreation of part of the old town of Tokyo during 1958 era. That was apparently when instant noodles was becoming popular. There are quite a few mini restaurants that for a nominal charge you can sample mini ramen noodles with different soup base and toppings. A very enjoyable experience that did not cost a lot for admission.

It is not just a museum, but various of ramen shop that we can actually dine-in are available. It's located not far from the station, and such a good activity to spend with family and children. It is not as huge as I imagined at first, so as for a tourist like me, it only took around 2 hours to complete. Don't forget to create your own at the museum shop.

This is a museum and ramen shop. The ground floor has interesting historical fact of ramen that began in 1488 till today. You can also visit the ramen making section (with a fee) and experience the process. The basement is interesting setting that have the 50s or 60s setting. There are quite a few ramen shop to try out. If you are in the ramen museum, of course let’s try out a dish of the ramen.

The Shinyokohama Ramen Museum has changed dramatically. Yes, if I look at my previous (quite negative) review for this place and I look at the museum right now, I can say that it is finally a museum. Apparently the changes occurred about a year or so ago. They are still working on it, but it is not just a pile of vintage items totally unrelated to ramen plus a ramen alley. It has gathered some ramen memorabilia, it has put on a ramen timeline, info in English, it is now making sense as a museum. New joints in the alley as well. Good job on getting Rishiri Miraku. Congratulations!

My husband at first underestimated the museum but we found it interesting, informative and the ramen was delicious, some of the best we’ve had and my daughter claims it the best ramen she’s had in her life

How much can anyone say about noodles? Not a lot. So don't expect much info or history on ramen. There are ramen shops where you can try different types of soup base and ramen. Not a bargain though as price is similar to what you would pay anywhere else. The only difference is you can order from 3 sizes. The cost of small (like child size) is around 700 yen. With admission fee, it is not cheap to eat there.

I would not really consider this a museum but more of a fancy area with different ramen shops of different noodle and soup type. For about 600 Yen, you get a small bowl (which is frankly not very small), so you can’t really try many different ramen. On the first level, there are some exhibits on ramen and an opportunity to make your own ramen noodle (which can only be kept for a few days). Overall, I was not really impressed with this place considering that this attraction was kinda out of the way. A better option would be the cup noodle museum.

Really enjoyed our visit here! Great good, friendly staff, and great decor! Word of advise though - some of their souvenirs are over priced. I paid 300 yen for something I have found at several locations now for 150...but that's to be expected at places like this.

We love ramen and are always looking for the best bowl of ramen during our time in Japan and so visiting the museum was a must. Don't go hungry because the lines are long. The basement area where all of the ramen restaurants are is fun and crowded. if in Yokohama it is definitely worth the stop.

The Ramen Museum is well worth the trip. We debated the visit due to the cold rainy weather but were glad we visited. The museum is small but the layout and décor are wonderful. If you are a ramen fan, don’t miss this. Entrance fee was ¥380 and ramen runs from $6 (small) to $12 and up (large). I ordered a small bowl at Stall 1, Ryu Shanghai Honten. It was delicious with just the right amount of spicy. I would recommend small sizes if you plan to try more than one type of ramen. We also tried the ramen balls. I was not a fan but my hubby like them. The salt cookies were very tasty; kind of like a short bread cookie with a hint of salt. Make sure to walk around all 3 floors for the full experience. There is a candy shop and an ice cream parlor if you have room for dessert. Note: They expect for each adult to order at least 1 bowl but it is not required. The ramen areas get pretty crowded so if you do not order a bowl you are not allowed into the eating area.
