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.

Don't get me wrong with the title : I am not saying this is a bad place. I just mean it shouldn't be called Ramen Museum, cause then it doesn't fit your expectations : there aren't much explanations about ramens. I expected some details on how ramens are made, the history of ramens and how they came from China to... More

although set up of overall place is artificial but it does give old town feeling. you got to pay for an entry ticket to get in. Walk around and see what you would like to have , in what quantity and which all place. Get a coupon and you are set! Ramen varieties are amazing, one of the best ramen... More

Its all fake, the "scenography" (inside building), the set-up, the restaurants and bars, everything is fake except the food and -paradoxly enough - the ambience and the vibe; This works!! The one restaurant and bar after the other delivered very qualified food (Maybe not top notch, but good enough to satisfy most), good RamEn all over, a excellent selection of... More

Exhibition was only on one floor with the panels showing some information and history about ramen. The basement was designed as a replica of olden Japanese shophouses. Each shophouse was a ramen food store selling all sorts of ramen noodles. The visitor will buy a ticket from vending machine and present it to the staff. They will serve the piping... More

Just went there tonight with a couple of friends, considering its a weekday night, there is not much crowd. I think the word museum is oddly used, considering its just a themed food court (with Y310 entrance fee) and lined with mostly famous ramen outlets. Yes, kudos must go to the general look & feel of the place. There was... More

We visited the museum on Sunday afternoon. Housing different ramen from all over Japan, I think the museum itself is too small. We went in and paid admission but was unable to eat anything since the queue was crazy... I personally think this place is more like a food court, even though it is interesting to be able to taste...

This is a very "interactive" museum. You can taste a lot of different types of Ramen from all over Japan. There was also the Italian way of Ramen as a temporary installation. Really funny and the atmosphere to be back in the 1950 in Tokyo! You can purchase the half portion of the Ramen so you will be able to... More

Museum is slightly misleading for this place, You would be excused if you overlooked a couple of posters on the walls of the museum shop. This is a glorified food court, which was also extremely crowded when we visited. There was no fun to have waiting in a confusing network of lines for a bowl of ramen. We had hoped... More

The Ramen Museum is not your typical museum and does not have any actual exhibits. Instead, it is a fun place to try all different types of ramen. The entire place is themed to be like an old Japanese village with small ramen shops serving different types throughout. One of the great features is you can get a "small" or... More

The “museum” has two levels, the first (as you enter) seems like a store selling shirts, ramen, crackers (even toys are sold on the back). There are very few notes about the history of ramen. The lower floor (divided in two sub-levels) has the 8 or 9 mini-restaurants where you can try different ramen types (Italian style, pork, seafood, etc.).... More
