Ramen is one of popular Japanese noodles.
Of course, this museum has several ramen shops.
We say usually "ramen", but the word is also called "raumen" in the old-fashioned phrase.
So the formal name is "Shin-Yokohama Raumen Museum".
It is located about 0.3 km northwest of Shin-Yokohama station.
Shin-Yokohama is the station of Shinkansen, and JR Yokohama Line and Yokohama city subway run this area.
(Shin-Yokohama is located about 6 km north of the central area of Yokohama city.)
On the ground floor, there is the exhibition about ramen.
And on the first and second basements, a town around the 1950s is reproduced and there are several ramen shops in the town.
The shops are the popular ones in various regions in Japan, so we can enjoy various ramen here.
The ramen shops are main, therefore this museum is open from 11:00 (10:30 on weekend and national holiday) to 21:30.
