The Shin Yokohama Ramen Museum Experience

The Shin Yokohama Ramen Museum Experience

The Shin Yokohama Ramen museum is known to be the world's first food amusement park. It has 9 ramen restaurants which allows you to enjoy different kinds of ramen all over Japan without traveling from one prefecture to another.

In the first floor, the museum presents the history of ramen noodles in Japan, including the success of instant ramen. It also displays the variety of noodles, soups, toppings and bowls used across Japan, and shows how the noodles are made.
Different Ramen Bowls in the museum
It also has a souvenir shop on the same floor which includes different ramen bowls, noodles and a lot more.
Souvenir shop inside the museum
There are 2 basement floors inside the museum. It's like you're turned back in time with a night scene around an old train station from sometime in the past.

These restaurants have a vending machine outside the area, just like any other ramen house in Japan which you can find but with an ambience inside that is a plus! You may deposit your yen, pick the ramen of your choice, get your tickets and give them to the host.

Vending machines are entirely in Japanese but they do have photos in it so you can identify the food you want to order. They also do have laminated menus in other languages including English in case you want to check clearly the food you would like to eat.
My Komurasaki Ramen
The ramen I ate was Komurasaki. It is a mild-flavoured ramen with tonkotsu pork and garlic chips on top which is my favorite. 

It was tasty and priced appropriately. Relative to other experiences in Japan, it is inexpensive. You can enjoy the food without worrying about your budget.

Note that these shops are operated by actual famous ramen restaurants from around the country. So you'll get to taste and experience what their ramen tastes like. 

In as much as I wanted to try all these 9 superb ramens, I only had a chance to taste one of them. Probably when I get back to Yokohama again, I might try at least 3 and will finish trying it all after every visit.
Happy faced inside the museum :)
Dagashi shop or sweet shop in B1 level
At the B1 level, is a dagashi shop - a shop full of old time japanese sweets. Here you can purchase real delicious candies, old toys and pin-up photos of bygone era celebrities. You may grab one of the plastic baskets piled up outside the shop and fill it up. I never get to try those but they were fancy and attractive for the children who will visit this area.

It was fun, especially for those travellers who are ramen lovers. You shouldn't miss this when you get to visit Yokohama.

More than anything else, hope you'll have a happy ramen experience! :)
