The Momofuku Instant Ramen Museum

Nisshin Noodles pays honors to the inventor of the instant noodles by opening the Momofuku Ando Instant Ramen Museum in Osaka. English and Chinese audio guidance is available at no cost (2,000 Yen deposit) for foreign visitors and all panels are multilingual.

On August 25, 1958 Mr. Ando invented the world’s first instant noodle product, “Chicken Ramen” after hours of research using common tools in a small shack which he had constructed in the backyard of his house in Ikeda. Momofuku Ando (1910 – 2007) graduated from Ritsumeikan University with a degree of Economics. With the invention of Instant Ramen he created the foundation for Nissin Noodles global business.
