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.

The Snoopy Museum in Tokyo is the only branch of the Charles M. Schulz Museum in Santa Rosa California. The museum originally opened in Roppongi in 2016, but was relocated to Minami-Machida and reopened in 2018-2019. The reason for the relocation was that the new location had almost twice the area available and also had a green area. The museum offers the visitor multi-dimensional exhibitions which deal with the legacy of Charles M. Schulz and his peanuts. The fan can also see original excerpts from original comics, vintage articles and animations here. In the shop "The Brown's Store" there are original Peanuts fan articles, which were produced exclusively for the Snoopy Museum, and in the "Peanuts Cafe", thematically appropriate menus are offered to linger in a playful atmosphere.
