More a themed food court than a museum, Shin-Yokohama Ramen Museum’s biggest attraction is an indoor reconstruction of a typical Japanese street from 1958 where you can buy ramen from different regions of Japan (1958 was the year ramen was invented). The restaurants offer small portions so that you can try a few different types before getting full; however, this is not really viable at the weekends when the waiting time for a seat can reach 30 minutes.
