Create Your Original Flavor At The Osaka Cup Noodle Museum

posted on 2018.02.06

One Of Osaka’s Many Delicious Spots

There are many types of instant noodles throughout the world by many different makers but sometimes you just want to enjoy the original, don’t you? Did you know that the famous Chicken Ramen and Cup Noodle were born in Osaka?

Let’s take a look at the Cup Noodle Museum located in Ikeda, Osaka. It’s a great spot to enjoy on your vacation!

Getting to the museum is as easy as taking the Hankyu train from Umeda Station. You will arrive at Ikeda Station within 20 minutes and the museum is about a five minute walk from there.

Once you enter the musuem, you will find plenty of interesting attractions!

Let’s Learn The History of Instant Ramen

The first thing you’ll find in the museum is The Instant Ramen Tunnel!

There are over 800 different instant ramens on display on the wall, starting with the first Chicken Ramen released in 1958 and continuing on and on until the most recently released instant ramens! Try searching through the ramens and seeing how many you’ve eaten!

The Birth of The Chicken Ramen

This small shed is a recreation of the shed that Chicken Ramen father, Ando Momofuku did all of his ramen research in. There are many recreations of utensils and tools that were used by Momofuku inside.

Create Your Own Original Cup Noodle

At the My Cup Noodle Factory inside the museum you can create your own original cup noodle!

First, you pay 300 JPY for your cup and can spend as much time as you like coloring and decorating the packaging. Not only will the flavor be original, but also the package!

After you’ve finished your beautiful package, you get to choose the flavors and ingredients!

There are four different soup flavors and  12 different ingredients. For each cup noodle, you can choose one soup flavor and up to four ingredients. This means there’s 5,460 different possibilities for the instant ramen you make!
You can also choose the same ingredient multiple times and, for example, make the world’s most onion-y ramen or other strange ramens.

What type of instant ramen do you want to make?

There are even more interesting attractions within the museum, but we don’t want to spoil all of the surprises for you.

When you’re visiting us in Osaka, take the time to check it out!
