Cup Noodle Museum - Yokohama, Japan

Hey!
So while in Tokyo staying at the Sakura Hostel in Asakusa, the staff members walked over to me and handed me and my friend tickets for free admission into the cup noodle Museum that is located in Yokohama. I was hesitant at first about it and it was a day trip away from Tokyo to go. She was already planning a trip outside of Tokyo and she asked me and another girl there if we wanted to go to Yokohama with her. I said why not and go to the museum while we are there! The staff at the Sakura Hostel in Asakusa are very nice and I thank you guys!! Also thanks to my friend Ari, for if he didn't leave with his fiance to northern Japan then I wouldn't have the tickets given to the girl and I! Anyways, I will have a separate post on my day spent in Yokohama, here goes the Cup Noodle Museum!

Lucky me, there was a book in English!

So we actually paid a little more, I think it was 300-400 Yen to do the "My Cup Noodle Factory" where you design your Cup Noodle cup, pick out the seasoning, four toppings to go in and then seal it up for eating later! Check out the cup you start with!

My ticket to get in and also do My Cup Noodle!

It was so much sitting there with her and just drawing and coloring away on our cups!

On the middle part that holds the markers it also shows things to pick for when you need to fill it up!

Nice large size room for plenty of people to create there cups!

The room next door, which is a little more expensive to do, you get to actually make ramen noodles from scratch! Reservation I think is accepted!

I picked curry flavoring, pork, crab, onion and what ever the cute little chicks were!

Sealing the top on for you...

Here is my cup all sealed in plastic ready for storage or eating!

You actually get to package it to get it home safely before you crush it...

Place the cup inside the balloon and inflate it with a hand held pump for protection!

An inflated kettle showing the world! The world runs on Ramen!

Time line of Cup Noodles!

This is a recreation of the shake that the creator of the Cup Noodle studied and found the way of the Cup Noodle!

Up on the second to top floor is a street like display with little window shops with all kinds of noodle vendors. The creator traveled the world trying different kinds of noodles to get ideas!

Photobucket

We shared a bowl of Pho which is a Vietnamese noodle soup! Super tasty!

They have a great gift shop and the coolest thing I saw was this Cup Noodle Candle, we asked if it was scented any particular way and it's just plain haha

The Cup Noodle Museum was really fun with lots of cool exhibits. If you happen to make a stop within Yokohama drop on by! Especially if you have free passes!!!!!
