The 26 Types of Ramen (ShinYokohama Raumen Museum)

During my visit to the ShinYokohama Raumen Museum back in January, I came across a huge wall that listed all the different types of ramen in Japan. And I've been meaning to translate it since I got back, but never had the time to actually do it...until now. Feel free to click on the flags on the map below to see a little rundown of that type of ramen. The most intriguing stat is the total number of ramen-ya's in all of Japan--10,408. Daaam! It looks like I still have a loooong way to GO!

This is a straight translation of the wall in the museum and all credit goes to whoever created it, so please don't sue me for sharing. If you want to see a more informative explanation of these various types, I still suggest that you grab a copy of edjusted's ramen glossary and visit rameniac's ramen styles of japan--a perfect way to school your own noodle!

I'll eventually get around to adding the pics of the wall to this google map, so stay tuned for any updates!

That is really cool. I wish I spent more time at the Ramen museum, but now I can enjoy it from the comfort of my computer! And it always boggles my mind every time I read how many ramenyas are in Tokyo alone. Almost 5000...man...

Thanks for the translations. Last time I went to the Yokohama Raumen museum, I didn't read any Japanese, nor did I have the passion I now have for ramen. I'll have to go back there soon.

Hey Brian, apparently they've added 2 more types since I wrote this so I'll have to update it soon.
