Slurp! Cup Noodles Museum Yokohama

By Kurt Low | 2017-09-15 | 911 views
We’ve all eaten instant noodles at some point. It’s cheap, easy and delicious. But do you know the story behind one of the most iconic food products in modern history? We didn't, so my partner Shiori and I went to Yokohama to find out!

At the Cup Noodles Museum in Yokohama, you’ll get to learn the history of Nissin’s Cup Noodles through a series of beautifully designed visuals, interactive exhibits and a cute animated short featuring Momofuku Ando himself.

Make your own Cup Noodles

But that’s not all – once you’re done, you can head up to the My CUPNOODLES Factory to make your very own cup noodles, from cup design to the flavor. With over 5,460 flavor combinations to choose from, there’s plenty of room for creativity. Egg kimchi shrimp curry anyone? Anyone….?

Noodles from around the world

When all that staring at noodles is making you hungry, it’s time to make your way to the Noodles Bazaar. This Asian night market themed food court offers 8 different types of authentic noodles and desserts from around the world for only 300 Yen a pop. The servings are small, but that just means that you’ll have enough tummy room to try them all!

One of the great things about the Cup Noodles Museum is that it’s smack in the middle of the scenic harbor town of Sakuragicho in Yokohama, with plenty of shopping, food and entertainment just minutes away.
So after a fun and educational morning at the museum, we recommend checking out the famous Yokohama Red Brick Warehouse nearby where you can shop, drink the local Akarenga beer and enjoy the absolutely gorgeous scenery.

    Is it English friendly museum? Like the menus and information etc.? Or perhaps there is an app/download for guide? Thank you.

    Noodle from around the world seems interesting! I've only been to the one at Osaka it's relatively smaller & less people at the time; having experience this it's not just fun for the kids but for adults too! If i'm not wrong they even had a gift store.

    http://www.instantramen-museum.jp/en/guide/service.html When it visited there had several staff that could speak different languages. they had the language/flag pin to their uniforms. from the website: 'Foreign Language Audio Sets Visitors can borrow audio sets in English and Chinese. These give narrations of the Birth of Chicken Ramen exhibit and the CUPNOODLES Drama Theater. A deposit of 2,000 yen per audio set is required when borrowing. (This will be reimbursed when you return the audio set.) Please inquire in the Information counter.'

    Yeah, the gift store was one of the best parts for us! Really cool stuff there. Worth a visit even if you don't have time to go through the entire museum.

    This is amazing. Who even realised that one brand of cup noodles could have such a big museum for it. You could never see something like that in England. I mean, they have a Currywurst museum in Berlin, Germany, so why not. But from an English perspective, it seems so bizarre.

    This place looks really fun but from the pictures the eating areas look crowded. Did you have to wait a long time to eat?

    Weekends can be a bit crowded, but the wait isn't very long so no worries!
