(Her)●Ramen (noodle) museum. You can experience different bowls of ramen from famous restaurants in a showa period environment. You can get in the museum for only 300 yen (like $3.80) and enjoy various bowls at your own expense. They offer mini ramen bowls for those who want to get a taste of many bowls only for 500 - 600 yen. Yum! We ended up getting quite full with one mini bowl but forced a second mini bowl - because you just can't resist it! Those with an appetite (the boys in our group) could have probably had another mini bowl though. Yum! You can also get a yearly pass so you can enjoy the museum for lunch if you work nearby. Nice idea!
The typical soups that Japanese ramen stores usually offer are tonkotsu (pig bone) soup, shoyu (soy sauce) soup, shio (salt) soup, and miso soup! Different regions in Japan have different specialities when it comes to ramen. For example, Hokkaido is known for their miso ramen. It will be fun to go around various cities in Japan to taste the differences! By the way, my favorite soup is miso. I love thick and fatty soups!
Popular ramen shops usually have queues lasting for hours every lunch or dinner. I've personally never lined up to eat ramen because I hate queues but I bet it's worth it!
I wonder where the best place to eat ramen is in Yokohama...
Will investigate and update you all later!
