For those who hunger for college dorm room cuisine, we have found the place for your pilgrimage vacation.
Simply mentioning Cup Noodles should welcome a pleasant, familiar feeling that comes with a hearty and satisfying meal at a price point that every last university student would love. We have all enjoyed the simple joy of slurping noodles out of those iconic cups. Now, according to the report, you can make your very own specialized instant cuisine.
The website, linked above, gives you an idea of the various attractions and exhibits you might enjoy with a visit.
One that we wouldn’t dare pass up is the Chicken Ramen Factory, which is available to adults who are young at heart and stomach for 500 yen.
The description states: “Make Chicken Ramen by hand starting with kneading, spreading, and steaming the wheat flour and then drying it with the hot oil drying method. After experiencing the process that led to the invention of the world's first instant ramen, you can take your freshly made ramen with you and enjoy its delicious taste at home.”
It’s almost like you can tweak your very own cup as if you were some ramen Ben & Jerry working on a crazy concoction.
Social media shows off a Wonka-esque wonderful world of ramen.
The museum is more than just instant dining, it also features a wealth of items that will have you immersed in the life of instant ramen originator Momofuku Ando, including a recreation of his work shed.
There is even an area for kids that promises to show the younger visitors things “from the noodle's point of view.”
Essentially, you will leave with a greater appreciation of that life-saving meal that is ready in just a few minutes and can satisfy any hunger.
