A display in the Instant Ramen Museum showing Nissin's patent system for instant ramen in a cup (cup noodle). The noodles are tightly wedged in the middle of the cup. The method both prevents them breaking up in transit, and also ensures they cook evenly. The Instant Ramen Museum in Ikeda, near the Japanese city of Osaka, has welcomed some 2 million visitors over the years. .
