Yokohama Landmark Tower ~n~ Plaza

So, the other day...Yesterday?
Tiffany, the Kids & I went to Explore some more out in the Yokohama Area.
We were inspired from our trip to Hard Rock. :)
So we headed out for an adventure.
We took the same train to the same stop and took the same LONG moving stairway ... only this time we took one extra set of stiars AND------------->

I felt like i was @ home, for about a minute.
Wow! :) Olivia was so Excited!
Evan too. :)

This is a picture of the Yokohama Landmark Plaza (at the base of Yokohama Landmark Tower).
It's a Mall of sorts.

This is Yokohama Landmark Tower .
It's the Tallest building in Japan with the World's Fastest Elevator.

Evan FINALLY got his own Ticket for something, and he was Quite happy about it.
Normally kids 4 and under are Free Everywhere.
It's 1,000 Y for Adults and 500 Y for School aged kids (O) and 200Y for E.

Thanks Tiffany for getting this awesome photo........
:) It's wonderful!
This is the kids at the top of the Tower....
The elevator ride was very fast and we were all "ooooh and ahhhh", haha.

When we got up to the top... we were all surprise to see, FISH!
There were Many little Aquariums. It was quite nice for the kids...

This is the MM21 district... and we have yet to do this 'park'... but it's on our 'to do' list.
It seams like Living Here, there are just unlimited things to do. :)
I am so glad we chose to explore a new area of Japan, and not go back to Sasebo (Although i still love the place....)..... Living here is just amazing sometimes!
Yokohama is pretty much our back yard! :)

Oh and ... don't forget to try the Dead Skin Eating Fish! :) No joke! they are very 'big' here in Japan, mostly for feet.
Olivia of course never wants to try this... but Evan and I... and Tiff were all for it! :)

When we were done with the Tower Tour...
We saw this guy (American)...who spoke great Japanese doing a show. It was Marine Day here in Japan, so there were lost of Stalls and Shows, esp for the Holiday.

After the show, we went back ... yes it was that good... to Hard Rock Cafe.
(But for lunch this time)...
OMG, Olivia Enjoyed her Wings, and ............

I had the BEST Haystack Salad.... OMG, i want one right now!
(and i am not even hungry!)
The Chicken was burn tasting... so i picked it off.
The salad was WONDERFUL even with no meat. YUMO!

After lunch we looked around the Yokohama Landmark Plaza Mall and found a Build a Bear store! :)
The kids were so excited and Tiffany got her Very 1st BABear! :)

Oh and right before we got on the train... we saw this BIG Poster of Harry Potter.
My kids (and us too)... are HUGE Harry Potter fans... so we had to get a pic! :)
