Dedicated to ramen noodle cups, the museum showcases the mind-boggling number of instant ramen flavor variations that have come out over the years and a reproduction of the hut where Momofuku Ando first created them.

Short 7 mins walk from the nearest train station. Cup noodle making activity is interesting for young children. Good place to spend an hour or two.
