I probably don't need to say much about The Momofuku Ando Instant Ramen Museum because if you've heard of instant ramen before (and I'm sure you have), then this has got to be one of the coolest places on Earth. If you're ever in Osaka, then I recommend that you check it out. Take the kids, take the parents, take the in-laws, take your momma's momma, and enjoy learning about the humble beginnings of the most inventive chef in the world. There's a workshop where you can hand-make your own chikin ramen and even design your very own cup noodle. And best of all, admission is free!
From Ikeda Station take the exit towards Masumi-cho and it's about a 5-minute walk from there. If you turn the corner and pass an Ippudo, then you are on the correct street. Keep walking and soon you'll see Ando-san's sculpture on your right. Open from 9:30am to 4pm and closed on Thursdays. Admission is free. Reservations required for the Chicken Ramen Workshop. See website for details.
