At the Cup Noodles Museum in Ikeda, Osaka, Japan, visitors can view the history of the instant noodles franchise and make their own instant noodles to take home. This museum is an hour train ride out of central Osaka. We visited the Ikeda location in April 2019 and the Yokohama location in October 2017.
After decorating our cups, we went to the glass panel where the workers loaded the cup with our noodles, choice of 4 condiments and soup flavour. They sealed off our cups and gave us air-filled bags to protect our creation. The cup has to be eaten within 1 month of making it.
We found the Ikeda location lacked a lot of attractions, such as the cupnoodles park, the chicken ramen factory and the delicious noodles bazaar - world noodles road. If you're deciding which location to visit, we highly recommend the Yokohomo museum.
