Forty years ago, it was the creative thinking of Momofuku Ando, the inventor of the world's first instant ramen, that revolutionised the eating customs all over the world. Years later, a cup noodle museum in Japan's Yokohama city was built to commemorate him and to inspire creativity in visitors. The Cup Noodles Museum in Yokohama City, southwest opened recently offering lovers of the instant snack a trip through noodle history. Inside the interactive museum, visitors can not only learn about cup noodle history but also six key ideas in Ando's creative thinking process. Both sections of the Instant Noodles History Cube and the Momofuku's Work Shed, which is a recreation of the work shed where chicken ramen was invented. Children will also be able to play in an interactive Cup Noodle Park which follows the noodle-making process from their creation in the kitchen to finding their way into stores. Here children see cup noodles from the noodle's point of view and have fun learning about the entire cup noodles manufacturing process
