Anpanman Museum

  Jan 12th, 2010

Had a great day at the Anpanman Children’s Museum with my sisters children. The museum is near Landmark Tower in Minato Mirai, Yokohama. There is lots to do for the kids with a restaurant and shops as well. Probably worth a half day trip if you are in town.

    via @Shibuya246: Anpanman Museum, Japan Photo-Post | Shibuya246 http://bt.io/DGFq A great way to spend time w/the family. I think this is the 3rd. time I’ve seen your niece in your articles. Also is that the nephew that had the Clone Trooper gear on that when you went to visit your family? all in all looks like everyone had a great time together. It’s great when families can get together and share good. times.

    1. shibuya246 says:

      yes, that is right. They are going back to Australia on the weekend.

      1. Neksus says:

        They don’t live in Japan? I may have missed that part before.
        Still amazing to have that much of family to come and pay a visit.

        Who is the japanese of the two parents?

            So it was family reunion “big style”!
            Sometimes I miss having relatives…

            1. shibuya246 says:

              A reunion indeed. It will be sad to see them go home.

    Looks like you had a blast with the family. Another great post.

    1. shibuya246 says:

      Thanks. It has been fun. My laptop is struggling to keep up with the photos πŸ™‚

  4. HELLOSHEENA says:

    That looks like fun.

  5. HELLOSHEENA says:

    I need to delete that post. I do not know how. My computer went nuts and put that pic in.

    1. Neksus says:

      Naughty πŸ˜‰
      We need an edit function, but this is impressive Hellosheena! πŸ™‚ lol

    2. shibuya246 says:

      Thanks Sheena. No problem. I took care of it. The picture was rather cute actually. πŸ™‚ I have to put in an edit function for comments. Sorry

    This museum is pretty amazing. I’m impressed by the amount of time and detail that went into arranging the displays. Putting displays in the floor is complete genius.

    I’m also a bit saddened by the lack of a GI Joe or Ninja Turtle museum for me to go to as a kid.

    1. shibuya246 says:

      They really went to a lot of trouble. It was great to see a museum for kids so well organized.

  7. angelcandy.baby says:

    looks like fun! your nieces are adorable ^_^

    1. shibuya246 says:

      Thx. They had a great time πŸ™‚ We are going to the Mitsubishi museum next.

    My 3-year-old would think he’d died and gone to heaven if I took him there. My other kids have had their phases, but my youngest just won’t grow out of Anpanman. And we all have to inhabit that world on a daily basis. I could probably name every character in your photos! I look forward to showing them to my son later today…
