Enjoy Ramen and Sake at the “Shin-Yokohama Ramen Museum”
The Shin-Yokohama Ramen Museum is a can’t-miss amusement facility for ramen enthusiasts. The space is a reproduction of the Japanese cityscape of 1958. It is a collection of ramen shops with various types of ramen from around the world, which differ from soup broth to noodle size. Some shops also offer beer and sake, which you can enjoy with your ramen on your lunch break.
Here you can try items you can normally only taste in certain parts of the world, including of "reimported ramen," such as the vegetarian ramen and other Japanese ramen styles offered at Ryu's Noodle Bar from Toronto, Canada, as well as the imported German draft beer and gluten-free ramen from Muku Zweite, a popular shop in Frankfurt, Germany.
You can also enjoy vegetable ramen at each of the four shops, made in the style of Shojin-ryori, a Japanese Buddhist vegetarian cuisine, so by all means check them out during your visit!
