A Day in Yokohama

Last year, we went down to Yokohama to visit the Cup Noodle Museum and also visit Chinatown, but we ended up spending so much time at the museum that we didn't end up having time to walk through Chinatown.  We finally found a spare day (a year later!) to drive down, explore Chinatown, and eat some dim sum.  

After walking around a bit, we found an all-you-can-eat dim sum restaurant and gorged ourselves on delicious Chinese food :)

We explored a bunch more shops in Chinatown and had fun seeing all the unique souvenirs and Chinese grocery stores.

After Chinatown, we walked over to Yamashita Park right along the water.  The kids ran around for a while and then we went and checked out a water safety (we think that's what it was about!) festival!  The kids got to try on coast guard uniforms, sit on a mini police motorcycle, touch and hold sea creatures, and we watched a helicopter water rescue demonstration.  It was pretty cool and quite entertaining for the kids!

We walked down the boardwalk a ways, relaxed on some grass for a while, happened upon an Indian Holi Festival at the Yokohama Red Brick Warehouse, and then walked down to grab some malasadas from Leonard's at World Porters.  It was a packed day full of fun and delicious food!!
