AnPanMan Museum

Filed under: — Andy @ 10:33 pm

For Melina’s birthday we took her to go see her favorite cartoon character, AnPanMan.
AnPanMan is super famous in Japan, and the AnPanMan museum in Yokohama is always crowded. Due to all the people and noise, Melina was a bit hesitant at first, but she really enjoyed seeing all her favorite characters and playing with all the exhibits. By the end of the afternoon she was pretty tired.

Squirrel Park

Filed under: — Andy @ 6:37 am

Years and years ago I was in a bus and we drove past a squirrel park. Finally, the opportunity arose to take the daughter and visit that place I saw years ago. Melina was super exited to see all the squirrels but was still a bit afraid to feed or touch them. The park also had rabbits and guinea pigs to feed as well. Honestly, I think I had just as much fun as my daughter…
