Shinyokohama Ramen Museum4.2
If you like to eat Japan's best selection of ramen in a retro environment, this is the must-go. Put the "museum" in quote, as this is basically a food court specializing in ramen and confections. Below ground is a huge atrium with two floors, themed in a style of the late 1950s streets. There is a square in the center, surrounded by shops in two levels.
Each establishment, background picture and light setting is very atmospheric, attracting ramen gourmands since 1993. Ramen shops are from all over Japan, such as Sapporo, Yamagata and Kumamoto, and they are changed from time to time. The ground floor a space for exhibits and shops selling products. It is 5-minute walk from Shinyokohama Station.

Well worth the short trek out of Tokyo! The food was delicious, we appreciated that the stalls sold half portions so we could sample a couple, and the inside is just plain cool. The brochure detailing which ramen was light/rich and thin/thick was super helpful. A must-see IMO for anyone who likes Ramen and is visiting Tokyo.

The Museum is more like a theamed restaurant.
The admission is not very high. If you stay near, think of a multi-day pass. (Or you may enter two times a day)
Inside you find a retro town scene with 10 different restaurants. Each serves test bowls for 450yen (you will be able to eat max 4-5) so consider before ordering. A flyer provides some help.

A nice way to wrap up our day in Yokohama. Museum and gift shop is upstairs and the restaurants are downstairs. We went in hoping to get a few small bowls and eat them in a central area but you must purchase at least one bowl per person (mini bowls available) via vending machine, then eat it at that same restaurant. It is hard enough to narrow down which soup base you want, but then each restaurant has many different options so it could be a little hard to choose. One bowl per person per seat in each stall. Vending machine is only in Japanese. I think there was only an ice cream dessert option as you come back up but other than that, no sweet options here. Expect to leave extremely full.

Oh I loved this place. It's bigger than you'd imagine and has three floors, or better to say levels. The inside is done as... outside. The ramen restaurants are located around a common 'yard' which also hosts a bar and a space for games or performances. Deeper are located narrow streets with doors so realistically decorated that you'd want to try and go inside.
Ramen itself was yummy, but nothing special to me since I'm not an ardent ramen 🍜 lover.

Good place to go. But quite small. The main attraction is eating ramen but stores only sell full size. Half size would be better to sample more of them
