Cup Noodles Museum (Yokohama)

The wife and I thought we would be smart and wait until Monday to go to the new Cup Noodles Museum thinking it wouldn’t be crowded.  Boy, were we wrong!  Found out many Japanese schools were off today due to school sports festivals over the weekend.  Needless to say, we didn’t stay long, but it was still pretty interesting.  Entrance fee was 500 yen.

If I understood correctly, the inventor of the cup of noodles got the idea when visiting the United States on a business trip.

Now available in space.

You can make your own noodles, but we were not willing to wait over 2 hours to do so.

Ate at a sushi restaurant in World Porter's for lunch.

Salmon sushi.

Not sure what kind of sushi this was, but wasn't about to find out.

Tuna, excellent stuff!

About runninginspired

I’m in my mid-40s and have been running for about 19 years. I have finished 24 marathons with a personal best time of 3:04. I currently reside in San Diego, CA. I enjoy running since it keeps you honest and will give back what you put into it. Work hard, but smart, and good results will eventually follow. I like to experiment with training plans, gadgets, shoes, and nutrition to find what works for me. The primary purpose of this blog is to document my training and thoughts about running in my ongoing quest to improve my fitness and health.
