Once you've wandered through the Instant Ramen Tunnel and soaked up all the instant ramen trivia you possibly can, it's time for the best part of all: creating a custom cup of noodles at the My Cup Noodle Factory.
Slip three hundred yen into the vending machine and receive an empty Styrofoam cup. From there you are invited to decorate it, fill it with noodles, pick a powdered broth and four freeze-dried toppings of your fancy (tiny fish cakes shaped like hearts or little yellow chicks are on the menu), and watch as it is sealed, wrapped in cellophane and squeezed into an inflatable carrying case.
Need more noodle? Learn to stretch, knead, cut and finally taste homemade ramen noodles at a hands-on workshop, held on the second floor five days a week. Plus, there's a tasting room open every day, featuring ramen-stocked vending machines and seating, perfect for those emergency Cup Noodle cravings.
Every day millions of people around the world spend their lunch breaks bowed over the iconic styrofoam cup of noodles, most without a clue as to where it came from. But after a visit to the museum you will be a well of Cup Noodle knowledge, wowing these philistines with your instant-ramen expertise.
