YOKOHAMA, Japan: Nissan Stadium, Ramen Museum, Cup Noodles Museum | Vlog 5


[laughs] You think you have magic powers? -Sim (yes).
Mágica (magic). [music] Hello, again,
from Yokohama, Japan. Only certain stations have their names
translated into English. Those are the stations
that connect to the JR trains. [beeps] The same Pasmo card from Tokyo
also works here in Yokohama. It actually works in the entire Japan. Same thing for Suica cards. What are you trying to say? What does that mean? Okay. Let’s get going. -That’s it?
-Yeah. -All that for this?
-Yeah. Wow, this complex is huge. We’re here today in the Shin-Yokohama area,
around the subway station. We came here for the Ramen Museum, but the museum only opens at 11:00, so we started walking around And I know this area
is very famous for one thing. Soccer lovers like me will get it. This stadium here
is very, very important, especially for me. Do you know why? -No, I don’t. -This is where Brazil won the fifth title
of the World Cup 2002. -Oh, really?
-It is right here. The final. Yeah. -I heard that game was fixed.
-No, of course not. No. How do you dare say that? [laughs] 2-0 Brazil. Ronaldo scored twice. -Yeah?
-Yeah, against Germany. Yes, it was right here, the final of the 2002 World Cup. Here they have a stadium tour
that seems to be really, really cool. They recreated the entire final
of the 2002 World Cup with Brazil in the dressing room,
and so on. It’s a shame I cannot do it now
because the stadium is closed for the Rugby World Cup. This is so cool. The entire team is here,
both Brazil and Germany. Oh, this is Cafu.
Cafu, right here. So cool.
Because he was the captain. And here, Oliver Kahn, the goalkeeper. -Why would they put his hand?
He let in two goals -Come on, he was a top.
-I don’t understand. -Foot, scored two goals. -Hand?
-No. No, you’re totally wrong. Who scored was not Cafu,
Ronaldo scored. And Oliver Kahn is because
he was the goalkeeper. -Foot, two, hands, two.
-No. -You don’t put a hand there. -No, no, no. Oliver Kahn was amazing. One of the best goalkeepers
ever in history. Turkey beat Japan.
They eliminated Japan. This is one of the top stadiums in Japan. If not the top.
It’s for sure the biggest. 75,000 seats. There will be soccer games
in the Olympics here, too. Now you’re probably thinking, how come the top stadium in Japan
is not located in Tokyo? Well, my friend, this is Japan. You get the bullet train
at the Tokyo Station and in 15 minutes, you’re here. Fifteen, 1-5, you’re here.
Totally different city, just like that. In 15 minutes, you are at the station
next to the stadium. Then it’s just another 15-minute walk. This is another world. Look at this. They have a whole collection
of miniature World Cup balls since 1970. And this is a medical clinic. It’s right here for everyone to see. How do you know
you’re in a first world country? Two little girls walking
by themselves just like this in a city with almost 4 million people. [laughs] -They have a six-month pass -Yeah. When are we coming back?
That’s the question. -As often as you want -Okay. -Hi.
-Hi. Do yo accept credit card? -No.
-Just cash? -Yes. -Arigatou gozaimasu (thank you very much).
-Dōitashimashite (you’re welcome). -[in Japanese] There’s a presentation here
fully in Japanese, but in the bottom of the screen,
it’s in English, so that you can follow along. I think here it explains well. “Unlimited Ramen recipes
with a combination of five elements. Seasoning, Broth, Toppings,
Oil, and Noodles” That’s it. Is ramen Japanese or Chinese? Here there’s an excellent explanation. It’s both. It’s a fusion of Chinese noodles
with Japanese culture. Japan was a super closed country
until 1858. Totally closed for over 200 years. This is when they open the ports
to foreign nations. And with that, they also discovered
foreign cuisine. This is when the food culture grew. That’s how ramen was born. Without the internet,
even here in Japan, people didn’t know
that they have different styles of ramen, according to the regions. Thank you, Internet. For 1,200 years,
it was forbidden to eat meat here. They give you at the door here
a whole guide with the dishes from each restaurant
you can eat here inside. Oh, my God, baby, look at that! This is 11:30 in the morning
on a Monday. Wow. At the first level,
you learn everything about ramen. But then, you come downstairs
and this is where you get to try it. This is a real size replica
of the narrow streets in Tokyo, 1958, when the ramen boom began. You order right here at the machine. Everything is in Japanese here. But they got a menu in English
and they also help you with English. Well, it comes with instructions here. This soup has two layers. Please have from the top of the soup first. Okay. It’s looking very good.
Everything. -Fresh.
-Uh-huh. -You want to try mine first?
-Would like Mmm. It’s good. -Yeah? Mmm, so good.
It’s really good. And I’m still with the first layer. How does yours taste? -Excellent.
-Excellent?! This is how you eat ramen in Japan. You got to slurp the whole thing. Look at the size difference, this is the mini
and this is the regular portion. After this, noodles will never be
the same again. This is an extremely popular place, so avoid weekends,
and come here outside lunch hours. [beeps] And we’re back in Minato Mirai. In the first day we walked around,
we loved the area, and we figured we had to come back
to enjoy a little bit more. There are so many things to do here. And as we visited the Ramen Museum, I thought it would be very interesting
to compare now to the Cup Noodles Museum. Ramen and instant noodles
are two very different things. Do you accept credit card? -Actually, only cash, please.
-Only cash. Arigatou gozaimasu (thank you very much). -Momofuku. Very important. He lived until 97. -Wow.
-Look at that. -So he was doing something right.
-Eat your cup of noodles. -Eat your cup of noodles. Yeah. Here in the museum,
you learn a lot about the history of instant noodles, and the inventor
of instant noodles himself, Mr. Momofuku Ando. He created instant noodles
to solve a problem, actually. He wanted a faster way
to prepare ramen because traditional ramen,
like we saw in the other museum, it takes time, you know? The noodles are prepared
the day you eat. They tend to be a little bit
more expensive. He had three inventions. First thing was the chicken ramen, then the Cup Noodles. That was in ’71. And space food, the Space Ram. He remembered the post-war black markets,
people lining up for a bowl of ramen, and he wanted to solve the problem, make food easily accessible
to everyone. With instant noodles,
he solved two main problems: cheap and fast food. Look at the evolution
of Instant Noodles here. In 1958 when it was invented. This is it. And then they started increasing variety more, more, more until today. Think it’s just noodles here?
Look closer. [laughs] Creative. Can you read it? In this other part here,
you can prepare your own cup noodles. It’s something that they upsell. It’s ¥300
in addition to the ticket cost. As we just ate, we didn’t buy. But if you’ve got kids,
I bet they’ll love this. You got to buy together
with your entrance ticket and then you pick up a time
to come here. You prepare and you paint
your own cup and everything. You see it’s for kids only, right? You’re looking so intensely,
like you want to join. -I’m a kid.
-You’re a kid? -I’ll always be a kid.
-[laughs] “Never Give Up!”
Never. 1971, the year he invented Cup Noodles. The Cup Noodles were invented thanks to a trip to America, he was trying to bring
instant noodles abroad. But then he realized
the different cultures, right? That Americans wouldn’t eat
with a bowl and chopsticks. So, with the cup noodles,
it’s easier to just add water, and then you can eat with a fork. Very interesting to see
the two museums on the same day and being able to compare the two. The Cup Noodles Museum,
I’d say it’s more for kids. Very interactive, kids will love it here. While the Ramen Museum is more for the art of ramen,
and you go there to eat. No more questions
about what’s the difference between ramen and instant noodles. [music] -Look at this.
This is really cool. -It’s really beautiful.
Wow. I love it. -I like this one. We’re inside World Porters right now and this is such a different mall
because everything seems to be wide open, especially as you go to the upper floors. Oh, my God.
Look at this. -Look at that, you could drive the Shinkansen. -[laughs] -No, that’s not the Shinkansen.
-Yes, it is. -Is it?
-That’s the new version. -Oh.
-That’s one of the latest versions. -Oh, yeah?
-Yeah. -You want to go drive? Go drive the Shinkansen, baby. [laughs] -I go fast. [laughs] I can’t believe you. [laughs] We’re back here in the same corner. Get a day, we just went straight through, now we’re gonna enjoy this area here. That girl is intense. [laughs] [screams] Yay. Whoa. Each ride here has a different cost. I’ve seen rides for ¥500, ¥700, ¥800, And there are also the machines,
video game style, and those are 200 yen Let’s go to the Ferris wheel. -No.
-No, come on, let’s go. -Okay.
-[laughs] Really? You’re that excited? -No.
-I’m serious. Let’s go? -Let’s go then. -Where is it? -We can’t find the entrance
to the Ferris wheel. Do you accept credit card? -Sorry, cash only
-Cash only? ¥800 each ticket here, about 8 dollars each. -Arigatou gozaimasu (thank you very much). -[in Japanese] -Arigatou gozaimasu. It’s an air-conditioned Ferris wheel. This was the tallest Ferris wheel
in the whole world when it was built. -Here we go,
here we go, here we go. -Oh. -Oh, we’re getting to the top.
-Yeah. -Oh, this is really high. That tower over there
is closed now for refurbishment. It only opens in 2022. And we are right at the top. [laughs] Look at how high it is here. -Look how big this thing is.
-This is enormous. -Yeah, ginormous. In earthquake land There’s two cruise ships there. -Oh, wow, busy city. Look at how many parks here
in this waterfront area. I love this view. Arigatou gozaimasu (thank you very much). Arigatou gozaimasu (thank you very much). It always goes so fast. I hope you enjoyed this day here and that you’re enjoying
our trip to Japan. Stay with us because in the next video, I’m going to show you the Shinkansen,
our first trip in the bullet train. Fifteen minutes,
you are at the station right here. Were you in the back
while I was recording? -No.
-Should I believe you? Well, Brazil is not
in the Rugby World Cup. [Gordon laughs] [laughs] -Yeah, I know. -Only Canada.
-Yeah. -Canada and Japan. -Oh, look at that. -I don’t see Brazil. I can’t see Brazil anywhere. You look here, okay? Admiring the view, huh? And there you go. There you go… crash my image again.
