A peek into Japan's ramen museum

If you love ramen, you'll need to make a visit the the Shin-Yokohama Raumen Museum, touted as a ramen heaven on Earth.

According to Drama Fever, the museum was open twenty years ago and charges an entry fee of 100 yen (S$1.20).

Visitors to the museum can learn about the history and culture of ramen and immerse themselves in a special exhibit that recreates a downtown Tokyo neighborhood in 1958.

Customers can choose to eat at any of the nine ramen shops in the neighborhood as they stroll under a ceiling designed to look like the sky at dusk.

1958 was the year the iconic instant chicken ramen went on the market, the Tokyo Tower was built, pro-wrestling was huge and there was a hula hoop boom.

Eating a bowl of ramen at this museum allows you to experience what it was like to be in Japan during a time when ramen became a part of everyone's life.
