Shin-Yokohama Ramen Museum

Shin-Yokohama Ramen Museum

The Shin-Yokohama Ramen Museum combines museum with foodcourt with ramen to create an educational and filling event. The museum opened in 1994 and is dedicated to all things ramen. From the processing of noodles to the variations of broth soup. There is much to learn in the museum’s small, yet full, gallery. With broth soup taste samples daily on the first floor, guests can taste for themselves the differences between three types of broth. The interior of the ramen museum is also notable for resembling 1958 Japan, the year that instant noodles were invented in Japan. These basement floors are the real attraction for many visitors and especially foodies. By purchasing a ramen ticket at a machine in the center of the indoor courtyard (separate from the cost of entry), you’ll be able to enjoy a steaming hot bowl of one of the country’s famous ramens. Choose from eight different types of ramen to satisfy your noodle needs. Flavors of ramen also come in half sizes so that you can fill yourself up on as many varieties of ramen as you like.
