Who: Myself, Den Leader, and Son's Cub Scout friends
Why: We were in Yokohama and hungry
Visiting this place was totally worth it. So quirky and well-constructed as only the Japanese can do. You will feel like you have stepped back in time. There are replicas of old Koban, bath houses, restaurants. It is very much a carnival type atmosphere. My advice, go hungry and order the mini size bowls so you can try more than one style. Don't forget to check out the shop on the main level, but save it for last so you don't have to carry things around. You won't regret going.
Learn about the history of Ramen noodles. Sample some different types of ramen from different parts of Japan and play around in a mock-up old Japanese neighborhood. It is a fun place to take a date or spend an afternoon with friends. We had fun trying out the old fashioned sweets and snacks in an upstairs shop.
