his heart; he gently leads those that have young."

More Yokohama

After a 20 minute train ride from Yokosuka we headed down to the Subway station to get to the city
Big buildings
Really neat old dry dock that they have turned into restaurants and stores

The Landmark Tower just in front of the dry dock. I believe this is the tallest building in Japan.
The kids heading down to check things out

Hard Rock and a funky work of art

Cool Architecture
Japan has several of these ferris wheels. Not only are they HUGE but they serve as a very accurate clock.
More cool buildings
Heading over to the rides
More buildings

We let the kids pick 1 ride. Eli and Moriah picked this log ride
More ferris wheel
Gideon is on that crazy roller coaster that goes underground
Zeke being envious of that kids treat
Thomas is in Japan too
I know you were missing these!
Cool elevators
In the big mall. You could spend a week in here and not see everything. This Godiva had a little river running around it.
I told you they take Christmas seriously here
The biggest and most beautiful tree I have ever seen
At this point it started pouring rain. So, we ducked into this nifty museum.

The kids got to practice there Japanese with this little robot
Joe got to design/build an airplane
Then he got to fly it. The destination chosen for us was Lyon, France.
He flew and made a successful landing
He got a cool printout of his creation too.
Testing out the electric powered car

Don't know what this was
This little Japanese girl followed Naomi everywhere
Moriah made some new friends. One American. The other two Japanese. This game required teamwork so it was pretty funny to see them giggling and screaming and instructing in the two VERY different languages.
After the museum it was still poring so we headed back to the Mall/Subway station and looked around some more
And peeked out to see the ferris wheel one more time

Riding down a cool glass elevator
Tired and ready to head home.


  1. I love getting caught up on your adventures. Reminds me of living in Germany with Kent. Sunday at the officer's club is a memory too. Best brunch I have ever had. Love to you all. JOY

  2. I remember having similar adventures in that very mall. I am so excited for you all - this is such an amazing opportunity for you guys, especially the kids.
