Traveling & Sightseeing in Yokohama

One of the major cities of Japan, Yokohama is a prime holiday destination. We are lucky to be given the experience to visits the city and spent a worthy 3 days 2 nights stay there with friendly hospitality, accommodation and delicious food fully sponsored by the generosity of PG's famiLy. Walaupun baru 1st time jumpa, rasa macam dah kenal lama. Sebelum ni pun cuma kenal dan berhubung melalui blog je, alih2 bila jumpa..layanan tip top yang di terima...*timo kaseh banyok2 Murni, Joe, Maira & Zayyan...lebiu love eheh*.

Upon arriving to the Shin-Yokohama station, we were picked up by them and received a mouthful treat of Japanese dishes: nabe (steamboat) serving topped up with super-yummy kenyit chocolate cake baked by Murni. Kak Yatie's family *that I met in Tokyo last time; read Back in the Fukuoka's saddle*, also joined us for the makan2 session.




Here are the list of places around Yokohama city that we went for our sightseeing tour lead by Murni & Jo.


(1) Yamashita Park/Port

With its convenient access to the Yokohama Rinko Line Promenade, varied statues, and modern art, Yamashita Park is truly a spectacular place to begin our tour through the Port of Yokohama or to simply take a lunch. We had our lunch at the park ..hohoho..despite the cold weather, we managed to picnic at the park *hebat kan kami? :astig:. outdoor picnic di musim sejuk ngeeeee*.

From this park, we were able to flash a spectacular view
senyumkenyit of Marine Tower. Marine Tower was reopened in May 2009 for 150th anniversary of opening of the port. You are able to view the vast expanse of bay from the refurbished observatory. A new glass curtain wall on the Yamashita Park side on lower floors produces a fresh look.


*Marine Tower*

Apart from the view of Marine Tower, the landmark tower of Yokohama is also viewable from the Yamashita Park. This 70 story skyscraper at a height of 296 meter is a symbol of Yokohama. The tower has a hotel and halls, and the view from Sky Garden on the observatory on the 69th floor is superb. At the Landmark Plaza, next to the tower, you can enjoy shopping.

*Yamashita Park*


In front of Yamashita Park sits the passenger boat NYK HIKAWAMARU , formerly called "the Queen of the Pacific". It was in service for 30 years from 1930. NYK HIKAWAMARU has been open to the public since its renovation on April 25th, 2008. You can see cabins featuring Art Deco interiors, including the first-class dining saloon, the first-class smoking room and the deluxe cabin, which have been remodeled based on the material from the time NYK HIKAWAMARU was operating as a passenger ship between Yokohama and Seattle before the war. There is an exhibition room where the eventful history of NYK HIKAWAMARU is introduced. The promenade deck has a stunning view of the Yokohama Port.

YOKOHAMA ANPANMAN CHILDREN'S MUSEUM

Anpanman is a superhero who dedicates himself to the cause of justice, aiding the plight of unfortunate souls. Anpanman fights with Baikinman and helps the people of the town. Anpanman will go anywhere to help anyone in trouble, to drive away villains, and to save people from starvation by allowing them to eat his face.



What? Let his face be eaten? No need to worry. His face is made with sweet anpan (bread filled with bean jam), hence the name Anpanman. Anpanman's very life depends on allowing others to eat, and once eaten, Anpanman can restore himself endlessly. He does not look handsome or strong *hidung merah besar, sbb tu baby SN suka gigit2 hidung dia*
gatai, but he never fears any adventure and is continuously flying to aid the hungry people and the children with difficulties. Anpanman is the hero of the new age, glowing with friendship, endeavor and justice.

*main dgn toys Anpanman with Kak Maira*

As baby SN is a big fan of Anpanman, the trip to YOKOHAMA ANPANMAN CHILDREN'S MUSEUM i.e a museum of the famous picture book and anime series, Anpanman is a must for us!. This three-storied museum has an athletic facility, galleries, a shopping mall, restaurants, a one-storied theater, and more. My oh my senyumkenyit ...the view was superb with a collection of Anpanman, Jam Ojisan, Baikinman *watak jahat*, Dokin(-chan), Shokupanman and many more..huhuhu.


*entrance of the Yokohama Anpanman Children's Museum*


*baby SN wat muka jakun tengok belon Anpanman*


*takmo layan mommy cam-whoring sbb nak picit hidung Anpanman je*

We bought two items from the Anpanman store to add up baby SN's collection of Anpanmana toys. He loves it very much as he will play with the toys everyday, sampai kan dah tutup lampu tengah2 malam pon baby SN tetap main dengan toys dia tu huhuhu. Jenuh mommy & daddy buat2 tidur nak bagi dia rasa bosan main sorang2
gatai ngeeeeeee.


*cubaan mengambil toys pastu suruh daddy bayar peace ngeeee*


*baby SN excited nak main dgn toys yang baru beli*


(3) KAPPA SUSHI

The travel & sightseeing around Yokohama was ended with a dinner treat by Joe at the Kappa Sushi Restaurant. What makes Kappa Sushi Restaurant is difference with another sushi restaurant is that, the sushi that we ordered will be sent to the table by using the
shinkansen (bullet train). Perghhhhh, memang excited lah asyik nak order je semata2 nak amik video shinkansen tu eheh. Even though hubby insisted to pay for the dinner, Jo & Murni politely refused his offer and pay for the dinner..*aisyyy malu I di buatnya, :bye: asyik makan free je I nih isk3x*.

We were really grateful with the big-hearted and warm treat by PG's fAmiLy. Hopefully, Insya Allah panjang umur murah rezeki kita akan jumpa lagi. Jemputlah berkunjung ke kampung Fukuoka pulak, boleh kami pulak bawak jalan2 pusing sini
peace ngeeeee.



#Info gathered from : welcome city, city yokohama , and jam co #

Psssstttt: sometimes we will have the feeling that strangers treats us like a family and there are times when family will treat us as a strangers, strange isn't it? :antok:. Well, I guess that's what life is all about.
