Two words: Instant Ramen. The best invention ever! Now you can make your own one-of-a-kind CupNoodles package at the My CupNoodles Factory.
Located inside the CupNoodles Museum in Yokohama, Japan, participants can select a noodle or rice package to make for just 300yen (plus 500yen Adult Admission). Then, get your creative juices flowing at the design station. Here, you can select from a variety of marker colors to draw something unique or shade in the CupNoodles logo. Moving onto the factory side of things, you’ll first get to choose a flavor and up to four ingredients to add into the container. Next, watch the seal and shrink wrap process and then enclose your cup into a protective air bag. This will keep it safe from being damaged during transportation, so you can savor the special flavor at home. Or, you can simply keep your cup sealed and put it on display as a one-of-a-kind souvenir from Japan.
What’s your favorite flavor combination? Have fun and enjoy!

Originally from San Diego, California, I lived in Yokosuka, Japan, for 5 years. In 2010, I arrived with a new outlook on my future. Mainly, to refocus on family and let my curiosities take us to places we’ve only dreamt of. Along the way, we’d hopefully develop new friendships and simply collect memories to last a lifetime. Then, there was the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami on March 11, 2011. I will never forget that experience and the devastating effects it had on the entire country. I asked the community, “What can I do to help?” Collecting, sorting, and packing donations, was the least I could do. I also went to California for 1 month, raised a monetary donation for Red Cross, and secured phone interviews to help spread the word on how others from the USA could assist. I was determined to show my family, friends, and folks across the world that it would be okay to return to Japan. I wanted them to know that the little things that make up this beautiful country still existed. What better way than to use a platform such as Japan Travel to share photos and stories full of life, history, and culture. It is a pleasure to say I have contributed more than 150 articles to a database that now collectively holds more than 15,000! This journey has not only allowed me to realize my initial goals, but I’d like to think that it has somehow played a role in sparking an interest locally and across the globe for others to experience all that is published here and more. I invite you to also share your wonderful stories, offer comments, and ask questions right here. Feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Safe travels! ٩( ๑╹ ꇴ╹)۶
