Cup Noodles Museum Yokohama

During our last holiday in Tokyo, we made a day trip to Yokohama. Initially we were there for Cosmo World, but it was closed due to strong winds!

Not wanting to disappoint the boys, we decided to head to the Cup Noodle Musuem located next to CosmoWorld.

Since it is an indoor attraction, it is open regardless of rain or shine or wind...

Entrance fee is at a very reasonable 500Y. This only includes the exhibition. Other activities may cost extra. A tip when you get there, the Cup Noodles allows you to make your own personal Cup Noodles to take home. So do book your slot at the ticket booth prior to entrance.

More about the personalized cup noodles later on the post.

By now , you probably would be thinking
' Cup Noodles only what... what is there to see?'

We were pleasantly surprise to find  a few things to do at the Cup Noodles Museum

1) Get general knowledge about Cup Noodles from the Instant Noodles History Cube

Step 1  : Slot in your cash , 300Y
This is probably the most interesting thing to do at the Cup Noodles Museum

There are a total of 8 steps to follow.

You need to book your slot at the entrance. Each session last about 30 minutes long.

Go ahead, be creative and design your own cup.

Once that is done, head towards the factory to 'manufacture'  your cup noodle.

You do not get to touch the noodles, but there are interactive places for you to make your own noodles.

The best part is you get to choose what is in your own noodles

Lots of ingredients  to choose from.

Once that is done, get ready to seal your pack.

At the end you get to keep your own cup noodle in a vacuum filled bag.

Super cool I must say.
