This is a fun food court. We came about 1/2 an hour before they opened and there were about 15 people ahead of us. There are two lines. The line on the left are season pass holders. The line on the right is for people buying tickets to enter. We tried two restaurants before the place got really packed. The first restaurant we went to was OK. It is the one on the top level. The 2nd place was much better. Some restaurants don't have the smaller size ramens. So don't get too full on one restaurant. Be sure to do walk around the mid-level area to get a scope of the beautiful decorations.

The museum is pretty nice, but the main attractions are the restaurants in the bottom.
There are excellent and variated ramen options from different parts of Japan, even lots of locals come to eat here. Just be patient because some restaurants have wait lines from 5 to 60 mins wait

Loved this place. Custom Ramen ¥500. I should have bought twice as much from the gift shop but I ran out of room in my luggage. The "mini" ramen is not so mini so come hungry if you want to try different types. The staff had these cool Ramen hoodies but they weren't for sale. Boo. Weekdays are recommended either before 11 or after 3. I suggest eating first then walk the museum, then eat again, then walk, then eat, then walk, etc until you have to roll out.

Such an amazing walk through ramen history! Everything here is awesome for a noodle-lover. Each little ramen shop downstairs offers limited-time shwag and small bowls to try. Definitely bring your appetite and try as many bowls as possible!

Pretty cool place, gives you the history of ramen.
Has a old Japan street complex set up underground, has several ramen restaurants withing the complex aswell as a desert shop and a sweets shop.
I've reviewed the individual ramen shops within separatly.

A must visit if you are in Tokyo or Yokohama area. The old Tokyo street scene is still the same as before when I visited the museum 16 years ago. Even though the ramen stall which I randomly picked didn’t impress me, I enjoyed the museum and would return again if I’m in the area! Worth visiting 👍

The experience is amazing, you get to visit a recreation of old japanese streets and you get to taste different kind of ramen which is very well presented and tasty.
The only issue is the wait to get inside the shops inside the museum to actually taste the ramen. You gotta queue up for a lot but it's worth.
They accept cards and they are tourists friendly.
There is also a section where you can create your own custom bowl of ramen with custom printed cover photo and bring it home!

A fun history, taste testing educational food court of ramen museum.

The ramen musuem provides a history of ramen with an opportunity to explore a very scenic atmosphere of a post-war Japan era with taste testing options of ramen from all of Japan.

Theres an entrance fee and be prepared, it gets extremely pack during lunch time as quite a number of locals are season holders whom come here to catch an occasional meal.

Its a fun experience where you can check out all the items and trends of during that era when ramen began as well as a section where you can learn to make your own ramen too.

The basement floor is where all the food is, at least 8-10 stores serving different ramen but as well a dessert shop and a sweet shop selling very nostalgic old confectionaries and sweets of the old era.

Be warned though, going at the wrong time and you'll be waiting from 45-90minutes depending on the ramen shop and days.

You're recommended to order a test taste bowl so that you can try the other shops but if you're waiting for 60minutes per queue you're better of hitting something you're very interested and get a standard size.

There are order machines at each store, with multiple language and accepts multiple payment methods as such as credit cards as well.

Its honestly a one time experience for us as the ramen was good but i doubt it was great as its catering on a day to day pack business to churn out for the queues.

The museum is very interesting, it explains the birth and evolution of this dish in detail and with many curiosities. In the basement, the reconstruction of a 1950s environment almost makes you dream of being there! You can try many types of ramen without spending too much. Worth visiting!

Great ramen🍜 The soup is tangy and I like the thin ramen noodles. Really delicious. But before you go inside, you must purchase a ticket to the museum first…it’s not a cheap ramen place

definitely a must when you are in yokohama. this place takes you back in time - the replication of the streets back in 1958 (when ramen was known to be first invented) is so great. the details everywhere you look is so nostalgic.

now for the ramen shops, the offer mini bowls, so if you would like to try all 8 shops, i suggest you go for the mini size because they are all so filling. each shop offers different flavor ramen from different parts of japan. our wait per shop was between 15-30 minutes. we went on a saturday night in september.

My family and I had the best time learning to make Ramen noodles from Spelt flour. The training kitchen was spotless and well organized. Sensei was engaging and dynamic. I will take the advanced course next time I come to visit.

Absolutely amazing place for anyone who likes ramen, the basement is stunning and looks so cool, they really put effort into it. You learn about ramen history while actually experiencing historic ramen places, it's really cool! If I lived nearby I would eat there often.

For Muslims, they stated that their menu is "not halal compatible". Even so, some restaurants provide a vegetarian menu that, depending on people's strictness, some of you may want to try it.

They also have a prayer room to pray/shalat/salah. But you have to ask the staff first and you will be guided to the prayer room. The prayer room has a kitchen sink, but when I was visiting, the water was not going out so I needed to prepare my wudhu first from the bathroom. And they also have prepared a prayer mat/sajadah. Hope this helps

A fun and filling museum. Upstairs, history and information. Downstairs, restaurants with ramen from all over Japan! Come on weekdays, less crowded. And the entrance fee does not cover the ramen restaurants. Lockers and restrooms are available inside.

This is a must go place if you ever visit yokohama. The entry fee is cheap (300 yen) for the museum, and there's a ramen district that is decorated like the older days of ramen shops.There you can have famous ramens that are known in japan in that museum.

There are ramen making workshops offered there and you need to book an appointment ahead of time.

The most fun part will be to build your own ramen bowl. You can customize your own lid with pictures from your phone which is very interesting. The price range from (800 to 1300 yen)depends on how you customized it.

2023-09-13 23:47:46 GMT

Very cool place to check out, and the ramen is excellent! The basement is the best feature with the entire area being historically recreated to look like the time when ramen first gained traction in Japan. There is also a Ramen Lab where you can essentially choose ingredients and craft your own personalized instant ramen bowl, which you can then watch the Ramen Scientists put it together and seal it with your chosen image on the label.

Truly amazing experience, it is definitely recommended to plan a trip here if you are anywhere in Tokyo or Yokohama. Calling it a "Ramen Museum" only is too humble, it is much more than that. The top floor truly is a museum on the history on ramen - even tackling the question whether ramen is Chinese or Japanese and discussing the ramen blackmarket during shortages - but the multiple underground floors are a travel through time 60 years into the past. The ramen you can buy there are authentic, historic recipes and you can get a small serving so that you can try multiple restaurants. The atmosphere is very retro, making the entire hall an exhibition on how Tokyo used to look a few decades ago. There were old buildings, posters, products, vehicles, vending machines, games, and more, it was so fascinating. Very cheap for what you get to see but you are expected to buy at least 1 serving of ramen, which you should do anyway.

The Shin Yokohama Ramen Museum is a time machine that transports visitors to a bygone era of culinary nostalgia. Nestled in the heart of Yokohama, this unique museum is a celebration of Japan's beloved ramen culture, and it's a must-visit destination for food enthusiasts and history buffs alike.

The museum's design is nothing short of remarkable. It replicates the streets of 1958 Japan, complete with vintage storefronts, neon signs, and the ambiance of a different era. As you explore the winding alleys, you're enveloped in a sense of awe and wonder, making it a memorable experience from the very start.

However, the true stars of this culinary journey are the ramen vendors. The museum hosts an array of renowned ramen shops from all over Japan, each offering their regional specialty. It's like embarking on a cross-country ramen expedition without leaving the building. The rich, aromatic broths and perfectly crafted noodles are a testament to the dedication and passion of the ramen chefs.

The Shin Yokohama Ramen Museum is more than a dining experience; it's a cultural immersion. It's a delightful step back in time, a treasure trove of flavors, and a place where the past and present of ramen collide in the most delicious way. Whether you're a ramen aficionado or simply in search of a unique and delectable adventure, this museum will leave you with memories to savor for years to come.

Surprisingly good! When you enter there's a fairly conventional museum layout that takes you through the history of the development of ramen. Go downstairs and there's a whole town from the 1950s set out over two levels. On the bottom level there are about a dozen actually ramen shops, each selling different types of ramen, along with drinks. We decided to go for half bowls, which meant that we could each fit in three types in about 2 hours. I now appreciate ramen a lot more.
