When we first got off the train, there was a big mall, and in it we found the looooongest escalator that we have ever seen!

In Yokohama we went to the Mitsubishi Minatomirai Industrial Museum, which was a lot like the Discovery Center, but not a lot of things for kids. They had different exhibits for Space, Sea, Automobiles, Energy, and Ocean. Ben really liked the energy one because they had a model of a nuclear reactor, just like the one on the boats. He tried to explain it to me, and most of it made sense, but if you asked me to tell you about it today, I would have no idea!! Good thing he knows!

We also went to the AnPanMan Children's Museum. AnPanMan is a cartoon character here in Japan that is very popular. We see him all the time on kids' backpacks, clothes, shoes, etc. Lucy has really become a huge fan. We watch him on TV sometimes, even though we have no idea what they are saying! So to say that Lucy enjoyed this place, would be an understatement! She loved it! And when she is happy, EVERYONE is happy!

The last thing we did in Yokohama was go to Cosmoworld, where they had a GIANT ferris wheel that we rode in. While we were on it, they had a voice recording of all the things we could see out of the ferris wheel and some history of Yokohama... and lucky for us it was in English!
