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.

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.

Loved the food inside but I’m not really into paying to pay more. The ticket is the entrance to the museum but there’s not much of a museum. You can walk the exhibitions in about 2 minutes is just a small room. The restaurants in the basement serve really good ramen and the place looks really nice, but there’s no way to get there without paying the entrance fee which is honestly not worth it. If the place was free and you only paid for the food I would have giving it a higher rating.

Not too much by way of history but 1000% in the direction of Very Good Ramen. Some of the places here are a bit legendary, and it was here I had one of the best bowls of ramen I've ever had. Mind you, it was after a 2 hr trek in the sun on the side streets of the local town, so I could have been a little desperate. Still, not to be missed if you are in the area!

What an interesting place! It’s like a ramen amusement park! They have gathered 9 different varieties of Ramen from around Japan( and elsewhere) and put them under one roof. You have to line up at the different shops and order from a ‘vending machine’ like thing. Keep in mind that every restaurant is separate, and you will not be able to share food. Everyone has to order one dish if you go into the restaurant. I recommend if you want to try a variety of Ramen’s to order at the half size, which is still quite big. I wanted to eat at more of the restaurants, but was only able to get through three. They were all delicious and interesting. The restaurants also have an English menu which is nice!
