This post is looooong over due! We went to the Nissin Cup Noodle Factory in JANUARY!

The museum area had lots of information about cup noodles, how they were invented, cup noodles in space and a huge wall of all the cup noodles ever made! There is a special vending machine where you can purchase limited cup noodles such as the JAL cup to eat there.

But what we really went for…was to make our own cup noodles!

First you buy an empty cup from a vending machine for ¥500.

After that it needs filling with your choice of ingredients!

Before you get it the cup is sealed and shrink wrapped.

To make sure it gets home safe you put it in this special bag and inflate it to protect your noddles until you get home.

Finished!

But the real test is how they taste….
