First is the CUPNOODLES museum. The first instant noodle in the world is “Chicken Ramen,” which is still loved by people all over Japan. It was invented in 1958 by Ando Momofuku, who was the founder of the famous Japanese company Nissan foods. “Chicken Ramen” was built in a small garage in his backyard. CUPNOODLES museum does not only exhibits many items related to instant ramen but also teaches us the importance of inventing and discovering new things through its experience.
Inside the museum, the model of the garage that the “Chicken Ramen” was built is made, and visitors can experience the history of the creation on “Chicken ramen.” Other than that, visitors can enjoy ramen quizzes and also make their very own one and only cup noodle.
