About

Taste ramen from every part of Japan and around the world

The Ramen Museum has a total of 9 ramen shops as of 2014. There is the main shop of Ryu Shanghai with its Yamagata Prefecture ramen accented by red spicy miso in the center, Tokyo’s Men-no-Toride that is popular with female customers for its complementary service to women and children, and Kamome Shokudo with its taste of Kessennuma, Miyagi Prefecture which was recreated here in recovery from the March 11th earthquake, and other regional ramen restaurants. On top of that, there is also Narumi-Ippudo which brings in a bit of French with its use of French bread dough in their noodles, and Muku, which is currently all the rage in Europe and has a branch open in the museum for a limited period of time. The menus are filled with variety. At every shop, mini versions are also provided so that you can compare the tastes of all of the ramen.

It’s not just the ramen! How to enjoy the Ramen Museum

The Ramen Museum is a facility where you can not only enjoy ramen but also enjoy Japanese culture. First, let’s focus on the museum itself. The Ramen Museum has recreated the streets of Japan as they were in 1958 when Chicken Ramen was first sold by Japan’s largest ramen manufacturer, Nissin. The Japan of those days had the first Tokyo Olympics and a postwar atmosphere of hustle and bustle as it proceeded to develop expressways and Bullet Trains, and it was a tumultuous time of poverty yet with a warm and nostalgic feeling. The streets have been replicated with a sad nostalgia for the Japanese. There is a small-time candy store which is now quite rare these days along with events such as kami-shibai picture shows. And at the Yuyake Lounge and other small drinking establishments, you can also get a shot of the good stuff.

Aside from the featured ramen shops, you can also purchase the ramen noodles of the shops that you like at the souvenir shop. How about getting those noodles as souvenirs for family and friends? And it’s also possible to create your own ramen from the noodles, soup and condiments that you like. This is also ramen that you can take home so it can also be a souvenir. While enjoying an atmosphere from a Japan of 60 years ago, enjoy that satisfying bowl of ramen at the museum.

Amazing!!!!
This was one of the coolest places I've been to in Japan. It is like a ramen-themed Disney land! Once you get inside there are a number of shops to choose from. The awesome thing about it is that the shops are actual branches from famous ramen shops from all over Japan, so it is a great way to try different styles of ramen all in one place. There are two different sizes to choose from at most places - a regular size and a sample size. We chose to do the sample sizes and eat at more places for the variety. In this way it is fun to compare the different styles. If you get too full, don't worry! With a single entry fee you can actually leave and come back! If you are coming from Tokyo, a good plan is to go the museum for brunch/lunch, then spend most of your day in Yokohama. On your way back to Tokyo in the evening, you can stop at the museum again for dinner!
