  • I love coming here because the museum is in a small, quiet town away from big crowds of tourists. I would recommend coming on a week day so that it's less busy. Usually though, the wait time to do the...  more »
  • 每次到大阪必到景點,小朋友自己動手設計杯麵個杯,揀選自己喜好的杯麵配料,完成後,更可以掛起由自己製作的杯麵,整個過程需時30-60分鐘,價錢只需300yen。 除了動手做,有很多關於即食麵發展史,又有很多影相位。  more »
  • Chicken ramen experience was really interesting with shank, had become my chicken noodle soup is thick noodles. Interesting bags to when writing your own picture. Please enjoy, come and go in a couple. It is terrible in doing just the children.

  • If you've ever been to the Coke Museum in Atlanta, this is kind of like that.... only with ramen! The museum is hokey, but you do get to design a personal cup ramen, where you can pick the ingredients and draw your own images on the cup. It's really a novelty, but it is free. The tourist shop is fairly expensive. Not a bad place to visit and fairly easy to travel to, but nothing too special.
  • Go early beat the school kids rush! Making your own noodles is fun. If you're Australian avoid adding the meat options to get it through customs.
  • Nissin museum is a lot of fun for about an hour or two; best part is the "make your unique taste and design your cup". It's a true 7-77 activity for families, especially with young children. When in the area, take the time visiting it.
  • Had much more fun than expected. Very cool learning about instant Ramen history but best part was making your own. 300 yen only, closes 30 mins before close. Audio guide available in all languages for free. Definitely worth a visit!
  • The main draw here is making your own Cup Noodle and you'll probably see plenty of people with their Cup Noodle air packages as you walk towards the museum. Fun for all ages as you design your cup(s), choose your ingredients and seal in air packages. Staff are friendly and well organised.
