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.

Walk back in time and have some noodles

A very unusual set-up for a museum (though 'museum' is often a broad term in Japan). The ground level has a few facts about noodles and a shop, not very interesting. But the lower... read more

As a huge fan of Ramen I had to make a stop at this museum. It's located walking distance from Shin Yokohama station. It would even be a great stop by on the Shinkansen as there are luggage lockers at the station. There's a 310yen entrance fee and you can get a stamp to return the same day. There's a... More

A very unusual set-up for a museum (though 'museum' is often a broad term in Japan). The ground level has a few facts about noodles and a shop, not very interesting. But the lower levels have a reconstruction of post-war Japan with real shops, entertainers and lots of ramen eateries. Best to think of it as a series of restaurants... More

Personally, I find this attraction to be falsely advertised, with regards to its name. The place, in fact, only has a small section (half a level) dedicated to the museum aspect and the there is not much information provided. Majority of the place is a complex featuring different ramen stalls selling ramen from all over japan. Despite many saying that... More

We stopped here on the way back to Tokyo for Kamakura. After the entrance fee and purchase price, is was the most expensive bowl of ramen we got in Japan. But it was worth it!!! The burnt miso ramen at Muku was to die for. We search for it's equal but never found it. The placed looked a little underwhelming... More

This place is like a really well done set from a Hollywood movie, Disneyland or the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas: an old Japanese town with ramen restaurants. The top floor near the entrance gives you a history of various types of ramens through Japan and then you can try a type of ramen by go to one of the... More

History of Ramen noodle making and lots of cultural knowledge. A good place to kill a few hours and good for kids of they want to know more about Ramen.

It was fun to taste different kinds of ramen here, but the portions they give you are pretty large (sharing is not allowed), and I was full after one and a half bowls, so I didn't get to try as much as I wanted. But the ramen I did try - Miso - was fantastic. The inside is also set... More

My son, the ramen enthusiast, had to come here when he found out it existed. We came here after the cup noodle museum so it made for a pretty convenient day trip to Yokohama from Tokyo. The Ramen Museum was not quite what we expected but it is worth the trip for the recreated life in Japan area. They have... More

This place is not so much a museum as it is a ramen tasting place. The upstairs is the "museum" part with a short history of ramen in japan and where you can buy souvenirs and other stuff. Downstairs is why I give this place 4 stars. It is a beautiful reconstruction of old Japan with narrow lanes and ramen... More

This museum recreates old Japan and really has little to no exhibits about noodles or noodle making. It does, however, have about 8 noodle restaurants inside for you to choose from. Kind of blah for me.
