This is the Ikeda City museum that was awarded a ranking of 7th in the world in 2012.

“18 Strange Museums That I Want to See Before I Die”
“The Instant Ramen Museum”
From JR Osaka Station / Hankyu Umeda Station to the Hankyu Ikeda Station Hankyu Takarazuka Line, it takes 20 minutes by Express and 25 minutes by normal train.
It’s about a five minute walk from the station. There are some signs near the station pointing the way, as well as station staff who can help you with directions.
Chicken Ramen Hiyoko-chan
The one on the left is the “Chicken Ramen” instant ramen character, Hiyoko-chan.
The right is Hiyoko-chan’s old design, and the left is the updated Hiyoko-chan revealed in 2010.
I feel that the cute culture of Japan is reflected with the new Hiyoko-chan having big eyes.
What can you see inside?
Come, let’s enter.
