Nerdgeist in Japan – The Ramen Museam

If you love Ramen then this is the place for you. In some ways it is kind of a Tourist trap but in others this place is Ramen Heaven. Once you enter you are met with a brief history of Ramen and why it tastes so good. Also on the top floor you will find a gift shop and a slot car track, but all this pales in comparison to what comes next.

Each of these restaurants already exist somewhere else in the world and have specifically been chosen to come to the museum and open up a temporary shop, this of course is a great honor and also a great way of attracting new customers. Its a delicious way to spend ones afternoon. If you are going in the next few months then try the Nidai-me Genkotsu-ya Ramen, it’s delicious….
