The Shin-Yokohama Ramen Museum is a mecca for foodies and ramen enthusiasts, founded on March 6th, 1994, as the world’s first food-themed amusement park. The museum’s innovative concept is to bring together the best of Japan’s ramen shops under one roof, allowing visitors to savor the flavors of this national dish without leaving the country.

To celebrate its 20th anniversary, the museum has expanded its offerings to showcase ramen from around the world. With nine ramen shops featured, visitors can explore a street-scape replication of Japan in 1958, the year when the world’s first instant ramen was invented, and taste authentic and delicious ramen from different regions of the country.

The museum’s street-scape replication transports visitors back to 1958, with its retro architecture, neon signs, and old-school storefronts. It’s an immersive experience that captures the essence of Japan’s post-war period and sets the stage for visitors to indulge in authentic and delicious ramen.

Each of the nine ramen shops at the museum offers a unique and tantalizing taste of Japan’s culinary heritage. Visitors can sample everything from classic miso ramen to regional specialties like Kumamoto-style tonkotsu ramen. There’s something for everyone, whether you’re a seasoned ramen connoisseur or a first-time visitor to the museum.

The Shin-Yokohama Ramen Museum is more than just a food-themed amusement park; it’s a cultural institution that celebrates the history, diversity, and creativity of ramen. The museum’s exhibits and displays provide a fascinating glimpse into the evolution of this beloved dish and its enduring popularity in Japan and beyond.
