Ramen Shop Theme Parks

Throughout Japan there are a number of what I will call "ramen shop theme parks". These theme parks are not outdoor affairs with clowns, balloons and roller coasters but rather they are simply collections of individual shops inside shopping centers and malls, etc. and the theme, surprisingly enough, is ramen. The most famous one is probably the Shin-Yokohama Ramen Museum, actually that one is more like a real museum than a theme park, however it's a commercial enterprise like all the rest to be sure.

I have been to just about all of of the ramen theme parks in and near Tokyo and I will present links to the reviews or external sites here:
