First Timer's Guide to My CUPNOODLES Factory

Planning to visit the Cup Noodles Museum in Ikeda City, Osaka Prefecture?

First Timer's Guide to My CUPNOODLES Factory

Your visit won't be complete if you won't try out the "create your own personalized cup noodles package" activity in the My CUPNOODLES Factory section of the museum. 

However, there would be a lot of times that My CUPNOODLES Factory is jam-packed with tourists. At times like this, the staff is pretty much occupied and there is a huge chance that you'd feel left out in the cold. Other times, there are challenges in communicating with them (unless you speak Nihongo). 

This article is written to help you with the step by step procedure to produce that cup noodle package masterpiece without much assistance.

So what are you waiting for? Let's begin!
Here's the procedure...

Here's how it looks like in real life:

Step 1: Insert you 300 yen to get one cup

Step 2: Place your hand in one of those machines to sanitize it

Step 3: Design your cups. You can personalize it or follow the designs displayed on the table.

Step 4: The noodle will then be placed in the cup 

Step 5:  Choose the soup flavors and the toppings

Here are the noodles, soup flavors, and toppings:

Please choose one soup flavor...

... then choose 4 toppings

Step 6: This machine will seal your cup

Step 7: Now watch her as she places your cup in a plastic wrap...

... before putting it through this oven-like machine to shrink-wrap it.

Step 8: You'll be given an "air package" where you should place your masterpiece. Then use the air pumps to blow air into the "air package"

Congratulations! You are now officially a cup noodle package designer!
