If you’ve ever been to Osaka and wanted to get off the beaten path as they say, you’ve probably heard of the Instant Ramen Museum. Located in Ikeda, (a town which loves the Wombat, a native Australian marsupial who has been successfully bread in the The Satsukiyama Zoo) the Instant Ramen Museum makes a great break for something a bit hands on!
So, Here’s all I learnt and did at the Momofuku Ando Instant Ramen Museum
Let’s talk animal cities in Japan. The two most popular would be Nara and Okunoshima (Bunny Island.) However for those wanting to see what other places you can venture off too, click here.
I’m all for seeing animals if it’s for conservation or it’s a sanctuary. Animal Cafe’s are pretty popular in Tokyo, however they’re also pretty well known for being money making over animal welfare. If you must see a café – take a look at listed ones that are recommended here.
Otherwise, go to where the animals are wild and can walk around freely such as Nara and Okunoshima!
Let’s talk all things Kyoto.
Kyoto has such a history of traditionalism in Japan, formerly the capital it’s filled with shrines, temples, gardens and palaces. This is one of the main reasons we chose Kyoto as a place to base ourselves for day trips.
