A statue of Momofuku Ando, the revered inventor of instant ramen, outside the Instant Ramen Museum. (via Osaka: mecca for foodies, and more | The Japan Times Online)
Bookmarked for next time. We stayed at a really nice ryokan in Ikeda but the museum was closed.
Also: Fuck Yeah Osaka! The article made me hungry and nostalgic. Double whammy.
