Art of the Noodle

Who would have thought the instant noodles we’re all familiar with could turn up as art.  This Yokohama museum celebrates the iconic noodle cup in a series of  galleries.

The museum is a tribute to Momofuku Ando, who revolutionized eating customs all over the world. Ando, founder of Nissin Food Products, invented the world’s first instant ramen in 1958,  and noodles in a cup in 1971.

There are also interactive stations, including one for noodle making, and a stand to create and eat your own cup.

The museum attracts hundreds of thousands a year, a fun way to explore noodles as art.
