Backpackers Hostel "J-Hoppers" & "Hana Hostel"

The Instant Ramen Museum

It's common now that Non-Japanese people like Japanese Instant noodle.. we quite often see our guests eat them in our kitchen or TV lounge..

Their tastes have been improving more and more, and I can say Japanese Instant food is the best in the world(of Instant food) ! (though I don't eat them often..)

However, have you heard that there is a place you can make your own instant noodle in Osaka?This is the place for that,"the Instant Ramen Museum" in Ikeda city !

I went there with my Hong Kong friend who came to Japan for 4 times already, and it was so much fun!!

"Chicken ramen", which is the first instant noodle in the world, was invented in 1958 by Mr.Momofuku Ando in a small hut in his backyard, using only daily things we use in the kitchen etc.. without any special machines.
You can see all his history and tons of their products, and try to make your own ramen at the end!


If you made a reservation, you can make "Chicken ramen" from beginning to end.
(You can try it without booking in advance, but I recommend to book before you go, because it's very popular and almost everyday are full.)
