The museum for cup of noodles is located in Yokohama. It comprises several floors of ‘everything noodle’. Well, why wouldn’t it!?
This place was buzzing with young people exploring the world of noodles.
The museum tells the story of a seemingly great man, Momofuku Ando, who worked tirelessly throughout his life to create the perfect fast noodle dish. First in a packet (instant chicken ramen in 1958) and then in a cup, which was introduced to the world in 1971.
The museum is probably best visited with the company of someone under 14. There is an option to create your very own noodle cup, including the out cup design. You take this home to enjoy.
There is a market hall where you can buy a bowl of noodles to eat while at the museum.
The creator of the cup of noodles had a great philosophy with a special take home message: follow your passion and never give up ! Works for us…
The museum tells the story of noodles.
Afterwards you can visit the souvenir shops but be warned the shop was a crazy place with kids enjoying a buying frenzy of all things noodles. Cost is 500 yen (about $6 Australian) plus another 300 yen if you want to create your own special cup. Visited July 2016.
