Did you know that Cup Noodle was invented in 1958 and Momofuku Ando is the inventor of instant noodles, instant ramen, and Cup Noodle? We didn't know this until we visited the awesome Cup Noodle Museum in Yokohama, Japan.
When we heard that you can make your very own Cup Noodle at the Cup Noodle Museum, we had to go. I mean who hasn't had a Cup Noodle in their lifetime? Mr. Ando basically created every college kid's staple meal! We can't count how many Cup Noodle and instant ramen we have had over the years and being able to create our very own custom cup sounded like so much fun.

The museum is pretty huge and there are several exhibitions and attractions inside the Cup Noodle Museum. Here's what we explored:
The Cup Noodle Factory was the main attraction we were drawn to when we heard about this museum. We showed up right when the doors opened at 10 AM so that we could secure our spot creating our custom Cup Noodle. Once you pay the entrance fee of ¥500 (~ $5 US), the museum hands out numbered tickets to the visitors that gives them a time slot of when they can enter the Cup Noodle Factory.
Our very own custom designed Cup Noodle!
There are several steps involved in creating your custom cup. First, you buy the cup, which cost ¥300 (~$3 US). Next, you have to sanitize your hands and then a staff member directs you to a table with markers to start designing your cup. After you complete your masterpiece, you take it over to the processing factory where you get to pick your soup flavor and ingredients. Crystal chose the classic chicken
