  • It's a quick, easy, affordable and not to mention a DELICIOUS way to cure your hunger.

  • Not having a knack for cooking, instant noodle was my go to comfort food during my long late

  • nights at the university.

  • Our love for instant noodles led us to check out the cup noodle museum that is easily reached

  • by the Minatomi Line in Yokohama.

  • After World War II, the shortage of food supply in Japan motivated Momofuku Ando to create

  • the instant noodle.

  • After a year of trial and error in his backyard shed, he released his first rendition of the

  • modern instant noodle on August, 25, 1958.

  • It didn't take long before his invention took over the world.

  • Today, instant noodle is enjoyed all over the world and is ever so evolving.

  • There are now more flavours of instant noodle than one could remember.

  • One cool fact about this is that Momofuku even invented the instant noodle that could

  • be eaten in space.

  • The fourth floor of the museum was our absolute favourite.

  • Here, you can channel your creativity and make your own cup noodle for an affordable

  • price of 300yen.

  • This floor can get quite busy so I would recommend making a reservation when you buy your admission

  • ticket to the museum. If you are planning on coming here with kids, you can also sign them

  • up for the chicken noodle exhibition that shows you how to make the ramen from scratch!

  • Although Jim & I were not the greatest artist, we still had a lot of fun and laughs making

  • our cup noodle, a delicious, personal souvenir to take home.

  • It was also a lot of fun seeing all the steps that was involved in making the noodle cup.

  • Once you have designed your cup noodle you can choose from a selection of ingredients

  • and soup bases.

  • Ingredients varies from corn, crab, dried vegetables, naruto.

  • Soup bases choices include chicken, beef, curry.

  • After a couple hours of obsessing over instant noodle, Jim and I started getting hungry.

  • Luckily, a mini food court can be found at the top floor of the museum.

  • This mini food court feature all sorts of noodles dishes from all over the world for

  • you to try.

  • Varying from laksa noodle, pho to tom yum and more.

  • It's no debate that instant noodle is here to stay.

  • When we observe everyone visiting the noodle cup museum, some young some old, and some

  • from many different parts of the world.

  • We may have grown up eating different brands but at the Yokohama Cup Noodle Museum, we

  • all share the passion of being able to pour hot water into a cup and eating something
