Family Visit - The Cup Noodle Museum with Sister and Brother-In-Law / 妹夫妻と一緒でカップミュージアム探索

While the family was visiting Japan, my mother and father decided to stay at their hotel for a relaxing day while I took my sister and her husband to Minatomirai to the Cup Noodle Museum.  But first, a few family portraits.

You can take part in making instant chicken noodles (reservations only).  We did not participate.
チキンラーメンを作れる教室 (予約性のみ)。私たちは参加してません。
But we did design our own cup noodles package and chose the ingredients for our own original noodles.
I never claimed to be a good artist.
We are putting the finishing touches on our original cup noodles.

And now - time for lunch.  On the third floor is the Cup Noodles Museum food court.  What's great about this food court is that there are nine different shops serving noodles dishes from all over the world.  We tried eight of them.  We decided to skip the standard Italian pasta.  I've featured most of the dishes before when I went to the Cup Noodles Museum the first time by myself so forgive me if the info is repetetive.

オリジナル麺を作ったあとは昼食の時間。 カップヌードルミュージアムの3階にあるフードコートに行きました。このフードコートの特徴は世界中の麺料理を提供してます。8種類完食。イタリアの普通のパスタのみ食べませんでした。以前一人でカップヌードルミュージアムに行った時のネタも麺料理のことを書けましたが、ここでもう一回書きますのでご了承下さい。

After lunch, we headed to the Red Brick Warehouse just to look around.


And then it was back to the hotel to have dinner with my parents.
