Tokyo Ramen Trip 2008 – Day 2 (Part 3)


The gift shop offers plenty of instant ramen packages of your favorite ramen to take home. I couldn’t resist buying almost every kind they had, but since they all probably wouldn’t fit in my suitcase, I only bought the ones pictured here.

Here’s some varieties of canned ramen and udon that I’ve found along the way. I have yet to try them, but I can tell you that the noodles are made out of konyaku–a jellylike potato flour that doesn’t expand.

Instant Santouka, Rameniac’s favorite ramen in a box.

Credits go out to all the people we talked with and all the people who wrote the various brochures we read at the ShinYokohama Raumen Museum. I can’t wait to return.

  1. looks like you had a great trip keizo! you’ve brought back a nice haul of loot there too lol.but santouka is hardly my favorite. i’d just say it’s tops for LA. in japan? you’ve got one of my REAL favorites right there in your pile – a nama box o’ kurume taiho!

  2. Man oh man…this is really what inspired me to start my ramen blog. My “anniversary” is actually in a few days and I was gonna write about my trip to the ramen museum too. I’m not sure I’m gonna have time to get to it though. hahaha.I don’t recognize any of the ramen you bought. I guess they change up the variety (and of course, canned ramen wasn’t around a few years ago). Can’t wait for the reviews when you get back!
