Get Nerdy about Noodles in JapanYokohama, Japan

Get ready to redefine the phrase ‘experience your food’ at Shin-Yokohama Ramen Museum, a noodle-based theme park. Honouring one of Japan’s national dishes – it was, in fact, appropriated from a Chinese meal – this museum boasts rides, shops, tastings and historical information completely devoted to the soupy goodness that is ramen.

Take a stroll through the refashioned dagashi-ya (old-fashioned sweet shops) or challenge a friend on the 30-metre slot-car racetrack. While you’re there, be sure to get slurping, since a whole swathe of varieties is being dished up.

Yokohama is just south of Tokyo on Tokyo Bay. Head to Shinyokohama train station – accessible on the Tokaido Shinkansen line from Tokyo – for the short stroll to the Ramen Museum.

Entry to the museum is US$1, and you can buy bowls of ramen.

A fun, convenient and delicious excursion for the whole family.
