Désignées commela plus grande invention japonaise du XXe siècle dans un sondagenippon,les nouilles instantanées, produit culte dans l’archipel et dansle monde, disposent de deux musées dédiés à Osaka et Yokohama.Depuis son ouverture en 1999, le musée de la nouille instantanéed’Osaka, accueille chaque année plus de 700 000 visiteurs.

The post-war food revolution

By developing the first instant noodles, Chicken Ramen, in August 1958, Momofuku Ando created the first success of a future giant of the Japanese food industry: the Nissin Foods Group. The museum focuses on teaching the public the story of Momofuku Ando and his creations. It also extols Ando's philosophy that if you have an idea, with the passion and tenacity to achieve it, you can invent something that will change the world. It is clear that Ando showed ingenuity, perseverance and simplicity when carrying his equipment and ingredients to the back of his bike during his experiments in 1957-1958. His modest workshop, set up at the bottom of his garden, is reconstructed in the museum. In 1971, Ando developed cup noodles (instant noodles in plastic cups) and transformed the instant made "made in Japan" ramen into a global product. Fast to prepare, nutritious and low-priced, cup noodles are a huge popular success that changed eating habits. Today, more than 100 billion cups are sold worldwide!

The famous "Chicken Ramen"

Learn and experiment

The museum not only exhibits Momofuku Ando's personal belongings, history and a great variety of his products through a ramen tunnel, there are also multimedia devices and a small theater in the form of cup noodle. It is also a place for culinary experimentation, since it gives visitors the chance to create their own instant noodles and cup noodles! At the Chicken Ramen Factory you can knead dough, make fresh noodles and fry them. In the Cup Noodle Factory workshop, you can create your ramen recipe, selecting your favorite soup from 4 varieties, as well as four ingredients from the 12 on offer; it's an opportunity to let your inner chef out to play!
