About
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.

    Incredible food with incredible experience
    Amazing visit. Museum on top and wartime themed ramen streets downstairs. Created to look like you’re wandering through old streets at sunset. Lots of ramen shops in fake streets as well as central area. People come out telling stories and there’s lots of wartime sounds to add to. Food is incredible. Most shops ask that you buy a bowl each but offer small serving sizes so you can eat multiple. Definitely worth a visit. Was my friend’s favourite activity in Japan.

    Really enjoy even though ramen is not my favourite dish
    This is more of a live museum as you can enjoy tasting selected ramen after you glance through their exhibition. The retro decoration really makes that place unusual. We don't know any of the selected ramen shops, but believe they should be great. So, we picked the one with the shortest waiting line.

    Great ramen, great atmosphere, cool museum displays
    Think of this more as a great lunch or dinner spot with an informational display attached. The two ramens I tried were both top notch, and the novelty of eating in a mini reconstruction of an old Tokyo street was a lot of fun. The museum display had some good information on the history of ramen, but is fairly small. Getting small bowls of 2 or 3 ramen from the different shops is the way to go, but get there early or the lunch lines can get big.

    It's touristy but tasty
    The first floor is primarily souvenir shops and a very brief explanation of the history of ramen. There is also a place to make your own cup of noodles. Much like the Momofuku Ramen Museum. B1 has a mock old Japanese town with a candy store in the back and a ramen shop in front. B2 has the multiple ramen shops that represent different parts of Japan. Salt, soy, fish, pork - they have it. They have mini bowls so you can try a few different types. Cash only. Kind of expensive if you total everything up. Worth going especially if want to try different flavors. Go hungry.

    Not exactly a historic Ramen museum but more of a different versions Ramen restaurants tourist attraction....
    This isn't exactly a fullblown historic museum about Ramen as the name seems to imply. But rather a collection of different versions of famous Ramen restaurants, with the usual souvenir shop thrown in & some historic facts about ramen displayed. The restaurants area at basement & along the passageway are set in a nice nostalgic old Japanese street setting. Lots of tourists & long queues at restaurants - order the smallest portion so you have stomach room to try 2 or 3 different restaurants versions. Entry fees is ¥450, with special prices for seniors & students. If in Yokohama, worth a visit more to try the different ramen versions, rather than to see the museum.

Adults entry fee is 450 yen. We learned some interesting facts about the history of ramen and then went straight to the basement, where the small ramen shops are. There are 2 shops that offer vegetarian ramen. The soup is miso-based and noddles are homemade and super fresh. Delicious! You can also create your own cup of instant ramen or book a class to learn how to make noodles. We went at 4:00 pm, and it was not crowded. Basement area is small, though.

They were closed today and I checked the website and the website said they were open and TripAdvisor says they’re open three 365 days a year. This was very disappointing, but I will try again. Hopefully I can give it many stars.

While the entrance fee is small , i have to wonder why there is a fee at all . The information on Ramen is interesting , but there isn’t a lot of a story to tell .
The Ramen meal we each chose was very salty , and not very spicy . The meat was rubbery and not fresh . There is better Ramen to be eaten just about anywhere in Japan .
Service was quick. There was no napkins or wipes provided .
This place is more like a collection of Ramen restaurants with a museum attached . The Ramen bowl at the entrance was the best thing about this place .
Very disappointing overall .

It was an experience, but very crowded and as a tourist not entirely sure what to do so far as getting food was concerned.
The museum part was interesting and there is a shop to buy all manner of Ramen food and accessories.
