We could have easily spent more than half a day here! If anything our half a day felt rushed. There’s oodles to do and see, fitting in both sights for us and our three year old. We loved this place! It was so inspiring. The creators story was amazing to see and hear. They cAtered so well to kids too - our son had so much fun in the noodle indoor play center which you book for and is in sessions so it’s not over crowded. As a parent you accompany them. We all had a ball creating our own custom cup noodles! By far the most memorable thing to do and you get this awesome super touristy keepsake. The mini movie was inspiring and the museum itself is great. And then possibly my favourite thing.. the food court!! It’s set up like a outdoor market with oodles of noodles to try from different countries. Me and my husband shared them all, and tried pretty much everything except for the Italian pasta. So fun! Give yourself plenty of time there to just enjoy the food. Definitely recommend this place. And the walk from the station across the bridge along/over the water is just beautiful too.

A bucket list for travellers. You’ll learn the history and revolution of instant noodles. Nevertheless you can also design your own cup noodle. Tips: try to go there early at 10am, to skip the long Q at My Noodle Factory and remember to watch the movie at the theatre.

This is a great way to pass a couple of hours if you are staying close or in Osaka. It is very easy to get to on the HANKYU line so can be done on the pass if you buy it!
Free entrance and only 300¥ to buy a cup noodle to design and fill to your taste! Well worth the visit for something fun and silly to do while you’re in Japan!

Initially, we worry about how to visit. After some study, easy, going by train. Just 5 mins walk from train station and you will be directed by road sign. You will then see the statue of the father of instant noodle. Free to enter n you will learn a lot about instant noodles. If you pay 300yen, you can then make your own noodle under their guidance. If that is not enough, there are vending machines that you can buy many other favour of cup noodle and eat at their canteen. You may also go 1 floor up and we see they have class to teach about noodle making. Well worth to visit.
