The Bluff and Ramen Museum, what should I do? 2011/12/18 23:05
We are planning to leave Tokyo for Yokohama first thing in the morning. We have decided that the bluff and the ramen museum are going to be our main priority. However, we are not sure as how to fit the plan together. Would any please kindly give us some advice?

See one and then the other and possibly something in between. Transportation details can be found here:

Shin Yokohama Raumen museum is less then 1/4 from the station. But unless it's changed policies in the last year or so since I've been there... it doesn't open it's doors until closer to lunchtime. Might be the last place you go to before returning to Shin Yokohama Eki.

Jeljel,

What part of Tokyo are you coming from and where are you going after you're done with Yokohama and are you coming by train or car? Your plan doesn't seem too difficult, so I'm not really sure why you're asking.

Thank you for your kind replies!
Ah, indeed my plan is quite simple, but I am not very sure how to shuffle things around. I mean, we only have two main objectives--visiting the bluffs and the ramen museum, under one condition that we have to be back at Tokyo Bigsight before 4 p.m. I just wonder if it would be possible to visit any other places in Yokohama as well, under this schedule.

Jeljel,

Thanks for the response.

Then go to the Bluff first, enjoy your stroll, visit an old mansion or two when they open around 9:30am, if you think you have time enjoy other places near the Bluff (because the Ramen Museum area is not as touristical), then go to Ramen Museum for lunch.

You only need less than an hour to see everything in the Museum. If you catch a 3:00pm-ish train at Shin-Yokohama you will arrive at Kokusai-tenjijo station at 3:45-ish. That means you need to leave the museum around 2:45 to be on the safe side. That means you need to leave the Bluff area at least by 1:00.

From the bluff area you can walk through the Motomachi shopping area over to Chinatown, and then up along the waterfront, past Yamashita Koen, and north to Minato Mirai.

If you're interested in doing two ramen museums in one day, you'll pass the Cupnoodles Museum on the way to Minato Mirai. http://whereintokyo.com/venues/25295.html

In the area there's also Landmark Tower, the Yokohama Museum of Art (mostly contemporary art), and the Mitsubishi Industrial Museum.

I serioulsy think the Ramen museum is over-rated.

Essentially you pay an admission fee to enter, see some displays, then you go to the basement where you pay to sample some ramen. You could probably eat cheaper and more in Yokohama itself.
