“Surprisingly Inspiring!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

Who knew that instant ramen had such an exciting start? Who knew that instant ramen could be so inspiring? From the claymation story of creation, to the recreated shack, to the making your own cup noodles, to the noodle bazaar, this was a great little museum in a beautifully modern building. A great way to spend a couple of hours!

“Fun museum, nice displays, gift shop is ok”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2012

Who hasn't tried Cup Noddles yet? This museum is dedicated to the man who invented Ramen noodles, and is worth a quick visit.
If you're an adult, you can do this in an hour or less. If you are travelling with kids, then you want to spend more time making noodles, and eating some at the World Bazaar.
The cost to visit is 500 yen, and the displays are clean, neat and fun. When you buy your ticket, ask for an English brochure.
The only 'negative' was that the gift shop has very few items available, and you can forget about buying a t-shirt that is XL.
Overal, worth a visit.

“Fun and entertaining with a good message”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2012

A museum for what Americans call 'Cup o Noodles'?? Yes, and it's fun and a good value. The inventor of instant ramen seems to be a sort of Japanese hero and the message was great...don't give up, look around you for inspiration...I really enjoyed it! We did the 'My Cup Noodles' for an extra 300 yen which made a unique souvenir. You color you cup then have custom ingredients added and they seal it for you- all very interactive.

There is a guide in English and all instructions are available in English as well. We didn't have time to eat there, but there's an international noodle bazaar for lunch...noodles from different cultures.

You only need an hour or two but I'd highly recommend it if you're in the area and have kids (or if you love noodles, food or are like a kid ;)

“Fun for All”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2012

First off this place was fun and informational
There is a cost for adults but for kids not in high school it is free.
You can build your own cupnoodle for 300 yen. you decorate and choose what you want to put into the cupnoodle.
There is some english all over the museum. And the instructions on how to make the cup noodle are in english as well.
There are pamphlets that you can pick up that are in english also that explains the history of the cupnoodle
The only thing that was not in english was the movie that they show.
Only thig for me was that i wanted to take some gifts for friends but they did not have much that I thought would make good gifts
Also another point was the noodle bazar it was not much for cupnoodle bazzar but more of a ramen food court. But the thing that was cool was that you could try different types of noodles from around the world. And for about 500 yen you could get half a bowl of noodle and a drink.

Overall it was a fun experience and I leanred alot about the history of the cupnoodle.
