  • 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.  more »

  • Great museum - short walk from the Ikeda train station. Kitschy museum but tons of fun photo ops and make your own flavor combo cup of noodles (300Y). If you don’t read Japanese, this museum will take you no longer than 1 hour, including making your own cup of noodles. If you book in advance you can do the more advanced option - making your own noodles from scratch in the upstairs lab area. Flavor sampling kitchen was closed during our visit. Recommended!
  • A must visit place!! Kid will love this place. Make sure to come early as this place is also famous for local kids for school field trips. If you want to experience how to make noodles make sure to book online to ensure your slots. 2 hours will be enough to spend inside the museum.
