The Ramen Museum

As part of this SECRET PROJECT that I mentioned on this post, I finally went to the famous Ramen Museum to try the best of the best! In all honesty, I am not a big ramen fan but it is really comfort food especially that it’s still mid-winter here in Yokohama! I can’t believe that Japan has a museum for all ramen-lovers! Right after work, my friend Ashley  and I went and discovered it for ourselves! We were starving as soon as we got there but we were in awe of the museum becuase everything was just so picture-perfect! After a not-so-quick tour, we immediately slurpped the night away! It was delicious that we had to go to another shop and try another one!

Entrance: ¥300

Tip: Buy the mini sized ramen so you can try another one, usually around ¥550.

My fave: Tonkotso Ramen (pork bone broth)

Fun at Tokyo Summerland

Happy Friday!

Planning to go to Tokyo Summerland anytime soon? Read below for some tips.

1. Bought our tickets at 7/11 and got 400 yen off! Website here for more info. We got the regular free pass tickets because we wanted to just stay in the water all day. I am not a roller coaster fan!

2. We took the bus from Hachioji station for ¥490. It’s a nonstop bus that will take you to Summerland. From the North exit, go to bus pole no. 6. Be there as early as possible to get your money’s worth.

3. Bring mats and floaties (inner tubes). It’s humid near the wave pool so better to set up your spot outdoor. There are covered areas too but it’s not free anymore.

4. Bring your own drinks and cooler because the drinks can be expensive if you keep hydrating. You can definitely save a lot if you bring your own meal and snacks because for some reason we were always hungry!

5. They have free inflater and deflater for your inner tubes but the line can be really long so buy your inflater at the ¥100 store. For the deflater, you can always do it manually. You can buy inner tubes at the 3 coin store because it’s a must have and the resort ones are fancy but pricey!

6. Bring waterproof camera or waterproof case for your cellphone to capture beautiful moments. (We didn’t have this!)

7. Don’t miss the water slider near the wave pool and the moving lagoon outside.

8. Don’t forget your swimsuits!

From Yokohama with Love

As promised here are some pictures of the Fireworks Festival that I went to last week. My camera is pretty new and I am still a novice photographer. I hope, nonetheless, that you like it! I hope you can come visit Japan during the summer because the Fireworks Festival is just marvelous! Every segment is like the finale in most countries. Just imagine it runs for 1 hour and 30 minutes! Each segment lasts for 5-8 minutes. I’ve been to two so far (Yokohama and Chiba). I will go again next week , in Tokyo this time! Hanging out with your friends on a picnic setting while watching the festival is priceless!

Thank you for reading!

Life’s a Beach

Hello Everyone!!!!!
Oh how I’ve missed you! I am so sorry for the absence. I have been crazy busy for the past few weeks and I am finally back.

Friends have been asking me about my trip to Yuigahama beach. So I thought of doing a feature about it since I went there twice in two weeks! It’s my happy place.

Easy Access
1. From Kamakura Station, go to the east exit and look for pole no. 7. Take Bus no. 40.

2. Get off at Kaiganbashi bus stop and go straight all the way until you see the beach. It’s a 2 minute walk.

3. Parking lots are everywhere as well so you don’t have worry if you are going by car.

Food and Drinks
1. There is a big convenience store nearby so you can just run and get supplies anytime.

2. Restaurants and take-out shops are everywhere!

Parasol or Beach house
1. Parasol ranges from ¥1,000-¥3,000 depending on the size. We came in a group the first time so we got 2 medium-sized parasols at ¥1,500 each.

2. You can rent a beach house (not like the ones in the Philippines wherein it’s private) at ¥1,500 per head. You can use their facilities including hot and cold shower which I like the most. There is a free one as well but the changing room is also a toilet so it’s dirty. If your group will all swim then the beach house option is my recommendation because they will look after your things.

Hope this helps. Thank you very much for reading!
