Yokohama Restaurants & Food
Experience Local dining
Excellent local sushi in Yokohama, located in Tama Plaza. Try out the 'basashi' which is a sushi made with the raw meat of a horse. Yes! You can have horse sushi. What does horse sushi taste like? There's only one way to find out. The locals say that it melts in your mouth and is rather delicious.
If after the Instant Ramen and Ramen Museums were not enough to fill you, then take a stroll over to Sugitaya for a big ol' bowl of tonkotsu ramen. The tonkotsu her is exceptionally creaming and flavourful.
Isogo-ku, Yokohama-shi, Kanagawa-ken, Japan
Kirin Beer Village (FREE)
Beer enthusiasts unite and rejoice, but don't expect an actual village of pubs and beer. Instead it is a small museum and public tours of the breweries, and of course plenty of sampling of the goods. The tour lasts about an hour, and are done every 30 minutes.
Shin Yokohama Ramen Museum
If there is only one thing you have time for in Yokohama then it MUST be the Ramen Museum. You'll get to sample the best of ramen from: Sapporo, Asahikawa, Fukushima, Tokyo, Yokohama, Wakayama, Hakata, and Kumamoto. With an admission fee of only $4 USD, it is a rather good deal. And for the die-hard ramen-addicts you can get a 1 year pass for only $9 USD, not bad!
Cup Noodles Museum
And you thought you were finished with ramen after glutting yourself at the Shin Yokohama Ramen Museum? tsk tsk tsk! Your adventure has just begun, you ramen neophyte. Now make room in your stomach if at all physically possible and take a stroll on down to the Cup Noodles Museum
The Museum is RATHER large, impressive and is everything the Shin Yokohama Ramen Museum should be.
The Museum hosts several ramen-esque art galleries, historical and educational. As well as several interactive activities. For example: making your own ramen, making your own ramen box, and lastly the Noodles Bazaar where you can take a sampling.
Depending on what you want to do at the museum there will be different fees or none at all (the noodles bazaar has no fee)
