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.

A wonderful experience and worth the trip to Shin-Yokohama. Great environment with local setting for each Ramen shop, the employees in the common area wore police uniforms and historical outfits. The ramen was great, we visited Kumamoto and Okinawa and they were fantastic! It’s really busy, a few shops had over a half hour wait but the others were quick and easy. Phenomenal concept and with a great museum!! A definite MUST if you’re visiting Japan!

I knew it was a busy place on weekends so I went on a Wednesday. No waiting in line for anything! And it was so amazing. Actors were out dressed in the historical clothing and a couple of performances were held. Of course, if you like taking photos this is the perfect place to be! The lighting, architecture, everything was incredible! Would definitely recommend!

I had a pleasant experience here. The interior of the building is very well done (feels convincing and fun to explore), while the food is also great. It is easy to create a food amusement park, but difficult to create a perfect experience like this. Everything was much better than I expected and easy to enjoy. I will return soon!

you can easily spend an hour or two eating/sampling various ramen shops from around the world. The selection changes every so often so there is always something new to offer. Entertainment is present in the center along with a bar or if you don't drink alcohol, there is a vintage drink machine offering glass bottled sodas in the back corner near the restrooms. I highly recommend browsing the gift shop and picking up a ramen bowl from your favorite shop if it's provided.

Been there twice!
Choose wisely. There is no way you can eat all unless you have a bottomless tummy. I envied those who can actually finish their ramen! No wastage.
The first time, we (4 of us) tried 4 shops. Ate one third (small serving) just to sample the taste. Pity that you can’t share.
Second visit, wiser now, we pick our own favourites. Hubby and son can eat 2 bowls from 2 diff shop. My daughter and I stuck to our favs and had a bowl each.
