The arrival of instant ramen in 1958 to the world marked a milestone in ramen history.

It was a game changer..! Just imagine….! Japanese housewives didn’t have to slave over a hot stove to prepare one of the most emblematic and delicious dishes ever been born in Japan. But have you ever wondered if Ramen is Japanese?


Well according to the ramen museum in Shin-Yokohama, ramen is hafu (a mixed race child)

See..? I never lie 😉 



And once we finish researching about the origins of ramen, we entered the museum, and this beautiful view welcomed us, 1958 was a magical year indeed. 


And it is in 1958 that the ramen museum is set up, as it time had stopped forever in its alleys.


The experience was amazing, I mean ramen is a unique experience in its own right. But walking, feeling, touching and “living” 1958 Japan was a sort of a dream come true as if someone would have opened a “time portal” for us. I just loved it..!


It was just simply lovely 😊
