If you’ve read my Cup Noodle blog post this is actually a continuation of the adventure I did months ago, as I researched about the Cup Noodle Museum the Ramen Museum came up and so I decided why not hit 2 birds with one stone since Ramen is an original dish of Japan, this would be a perfect opportunity to learn about it. 😆
Located at Shin- Yokohama this museum was founded on March 6th, 1994 as the world’s first food-themed amusement park and caters traditional Ramens from different parts of japan under one roof.
It took me about 20 minutes to find the place using goodle map but what I should have realized is that follow the crowd of families because they would probably go to the museum as well ( Tip number 1)😂 and don’t let the outside appearance of the museum fool you, it looks really normal but inside is just breathtaking , it was like a whole new world as you step inside.
The place is actually like a movie set and there are nine Ramen shops in the park (wear your eating pants on👖) and they are showcased in a street-scape replication from the year 1958 of Japan. The details of the area is just amazing, everything is designed the way it should be to give you a nostalgic feeling of the past.
It would probably take you not more than an hour to circulate the entire museum since the place isn’t that big but the lines to eat Ramens on each shops can take a while especially on weekends but it is worth the wait and when you visit this museum you shouldn’t eat before hand, so that you can try a lot of different Ramens (Tip number2) and order the mini size bowls (Tip number 3). 🍴
