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.

It's more of a food hall than a museum. That being said, it's probably the best place to be able to try a wide variety of ramen. The hardest part will be choosing what you get. Come ready to eat and know that the visit is worth the excursion.

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.

Cool idea, but it was absolutely packed with tourists which quickly drained my patience, and severely impacted my enjoyment. It's to be expected, but the place is far too small to accommodate for it. They really ought to re-locate to a larger venue. My advice is to go during off-hours, or don't go at all.

Most easily a Mecca for Ramen lovers! But make sure you skip breakfast or you'll be finding yourself unable to savour the delicious ramen to full capacity! And the decor of the place will take you back to the Japan of the 1950s! Do not miss the little souvenir shop inside for the most nostalgic bits of your childhood!
