Cup Noodles are sold and loved worldwide. And this product is one of the 20th century’s most significant Japanese inventions (^o^)v. On September 17, Yokohama will host the grand opening of the Nissin Cup Noodles Museum directed by a famous designer, Kashiwa Sato. Today, I would like to take you on a quick virtual tour!
[Instant Ramen History Cube]
Beginning with “Chicken Ramen” (the origin of instant ramen created only about half century ago), you can trace the whole history of instant ramen with a dazzling array of packages.
In this room, you can see a computer graphic animated film telling about the “creative thinking”mind of Momofuku Ando, founder of Nissin.
[Chicken Ramen Factory]
You can experience the creation of Chicken Ramen and witness the real manufacturing method. (reservation and entrance fee necessary).
[My Cup Noodles Factory]
Create your original Cup Noodles! You can design your cup, choose your favorite soup and ingredients. There are 5,460 combinations to choose from . (reservation unnecessary / fees apply)
[Cup Noodles Park]
In this interactive noodle factory simulation, children (over 3 year old / under elementary school) assume the role of “noodles” themselves and become part of the manufacturing processes in a truly kinesthetic experience.

There are more and more attractions. To me, Cup Noodles Park sounds quite fun! I wish I were a child XD!
