|First stop was the giant ferris wheel!|

|We started the day at the Cup Noodle Museum (Ramen Noodle Museum). Boys designed and decorated their cup of noodles.|
|They turned the crank to get the noodles in the cup|
|They chose toppings (bacon, cheese, chicken and shrimp)|
|They watched them cover it and wrap it in plastic wrap|
|Finally they pumped up the little bag to create an air pillow of protection around your cup of noodles.|
|Finished product! Time to tour the museum and learn the history of ramen noodles.|
|They thought it was cool to be on TV!|

|Would have been a MUCH nicer day to ride the ferris wheel!|
|Much prettier in clear skies!|
To kill some time while Ken was working, we went for a stroll through Chinatown...
|Welcome to China town - narrow streets, vibrant colors, lanterns, street food EVERYWHERE!|
|It was a bit hot in the sun, but perfect in the shade...|

|Temple in china town. Love all the colors.|
|View of Yokohama from Landmark Tower. That ferris wheel sure looks small from up here!|
And I have to include a picture of a Japanese toilet. The boys fell in love with them!! "These toilets are EPIC!!!" were their exact words. This is a fairly basic model, but I forgot to take a picture of the toilet in our hotel. The toilets have buttons for evyoerything! Water spray (for cleaning), bidet, temperature and pressure control of the water sprays, temperature control for the seat, some even have music and various other sounds with volume control. They really are crazy! And they are intimidating when they aren't in English! How do I know if I pressed the button to flush or turned on the water spray if it's only in Japanese??
It was another fantastic trip to Japan and I sincerely hope it won't be our last.
