Today, I’ve come to CUPNOODLES MUSEUM in Yokohama.
Have you try to eat CUPNOODLE in Japan? In fact, CUPNOODLE is worldwide food that is once announced in BBC as ‘It is what Japanese are proud of the most in the world among the things that Japanese had invested.’
Here is the real article.
This is an article written in 2000, 15 years ago from now.It is old but might be useful information. Well, I will introduce CUPNOODLE MUSEUM that is a museum of CUPNOODLE. This museum is not a normal museum. Here is an interactive museum where every generation from children to adults can enjoy themselves. Then, from now, I will show you 3 appeals of this museum.
Appeal①Exhibitions –you can be overwhelmed–
Each package reminds us of the history of CUPNOODLE. And here is a unique idea!
A bright room is surrounded by CUPNOODLEs. I suppose you can see them as long as you like.
Appeal②Experience –you can actually make CUPNOODLEs by yourselves–
Surprisingly, you can cook your original cup noodle in this museum!
The tables are full around, aren’t they? Children and even adults are eager to make because they have to make CUPNOODLEs from wheat flour.
You can also arrange the combination of the toppings as you like. Why don’t you make a CUPNOODLE which is only one in the world!?
Appeal③Food Court –you can eat worldwide noodles–
In this food court, surprisingly you can eat 8 countries’ noodles like the following lineups,
China：Lanzhou Beef Ramen
Korea: Cold Ramen
Thai: Tom Yam Goong noodles
Each dish is so reasonable! (cf. a half size serving: \300.)
When you get a little bit hungry, you want to stop by, don’t you?!
What do you think about CUPNOODLE MUSEUM? There are lots of interests, that is, you can also watch movies about cup noodles, kids can play in the athletic places, and you can enjoy shopping enough souvenirs. Why don’t you go to see, cook, and eat ‘CUP NOODLE’that is invested by Japanese and also we Japanese are proud of the most in the world?
