We visited this place with our kids, 14 & 10 years, we had such a great time decorating and making our noodles. The museum itself does not have much English at all, which was a bit disappointing. It was extremely busy, but kids had fun.

Went with husband and eight-year-old who has a huge appetite for Japanese noodles. Definitely fun to make your own cup of noodles and explore the various noodles from around the world.
