The Shinyokohama Ramen Museum

A must visit for fans of noodles, The “Shinyokohama Ramen Museum” is a unique museum about ramen, a very popular Japanese noodle dish originally introduced from China.

The Ramen Museum presents the history of ramen noodles in Japan, including the big success of instant ramen. It displays the variety of noodles, soups, toppings and bowls used across Japan, and shows how the noodles are made. On the two basement floors, visitors can explore a 1:1 replica of some streets and houses of Shitamachi, the old town of Tokyo, of around the year 1958, when the popularity of ramen was rapidly increasing.

Once your appetite has been whetted, there are nine ramen restaurants to be found there, each featuring a ramen dish from a different region of Japan.
