Where I stayed
What I did
Sightseeing in Yokohama
Today a small group went by train to the next largest city in Japan, Yokohama, which has pretty much grown to be a part of Tokyo.
First we went to Yokohama China Town which is said to be the biggest of the 3 in Japan. But it didnt seem like much of a chinatown, not compared to what Ive seen in london for example. There were some chinese things around, but they were very japanese aswell, not to mention the Hawaiin shop and the mexican shop.
So we went quickly through that, took a stroll down through the Yokohama shopping district and then took the train to Shin-Yokohama and visited the Ramen Museum which was a much bigger succes. That place was awesome! They had reconstructed a small area from japanese 1958, the year where instant noodles where invented and the ramen industry really flourished. There you could visit shops that sold ramen from different areas of Japan, wither in big or small portions, and supposedly the smaller portions were considered so small that you could try more than one place, but when we got our snall portions they were maye 2 or 3 times the size of a danish portion of soup, and i couldnt even finish mine, even though it was super delicious.
When we returned we went to the Gundam Cafe and had some gundam-inspired desserts. Then we went home, took a bath and spent the rest of the evening relaxing in the complimentary yukata.
