Mr. Noodle's send-off

Momofuku Ando, inventor of instant noodles, died on January 5, and this week, he received a first-rate send-off attended by thousands, including an astronaut, a former prime minister, and thirty-four monks.

The memorial service for Mr. Ando was held at the Kyocera Dome baseball stadium in Osaka.
