    21 Tag Fukuoka/Yokohama

    May 1, 2018 in Japan ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    Das war vielleicht ein langweiliger Nachmittag. Wir fuhren nur Zug und das 5 Stunden!!! Immerhin wurde der Abend noch cool. Wir gingen in die Metropole wo wir die Skyline von Yokohama gesehen haben. Ausserdem habe ich ein Hard Rock Café T-Shirt geschenkt bekommen die ich jetzt auch sammle.

    Tag 21 Fukuoka / Yokohama

    May 1, 2018 in Japan ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    Nach fast sechs Stunden Zugfahrt sind wir in Yokohama angekommen. Wir hatten grosses Glück und der Mount Fuji zeigte sich von seiner besten Seite! Oft sieht man die Bergspitze nicht. Auch Yokohama hat unglaublich viel zu bieten und ist eine sehr moderne Stadt, wo vorallem Unterhaltung im Mittelpunkt steht.

    Nun ist soweit. Die letzte Nacht in Japan steht an. Wir müssen das erste Mal Abschied nehmen. Auch wenn noch ganz viel vor uns liegt, haben wir einen Teil von unserem Traum erlebt. Es war wunderschön!

    October 3, 2017 in Japan ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Heute ging es nach dem Aufstehen mit einem JR-Zug ca. 1 Std. nach Yokohama gefahren, um uns dort Hard Rock Cafe T-Shirts zu holen, Ist bekloppt aber geil. Als wir aus der Bahnstation kamen haben wir als erstes den Yokohama Landmark Tower Sky Garden gesehen. Es ging auf den direkten Weg zum Hard Rock Cafe Shop. Dort haben wir uns Shirts ausgesucht und spontan dazu entschieden nebenan im Cafe etwas zu Mittag gegessen. War richtig lecker und günstig. Mit vollen Mägen haben wir uns noch Yokohama China Town angesehen und auch gleich Chinesischen Tempel Masobyo besucht. Dann ging es zurück nach Tokyo in den Stadtteil Shibuya, um uns im Disney Store Karten für Disney Sea für morgen zu holen. Nach kurzem anstehen hatten wir die Karten und sind zum Starbucks am Shibuya Crossing gegangen und haben uns die Kreuzung bei Nacht von oben angeschaut mit den Menschenmassen. Zum Abschluss des Tages sind wir noch zum Laden Alice on Wednesday gegangen und haben da eine Runde gedreht.Read more

    Yokohama DeNA BayStars v Yakult Swallows

    July 16, 2018 in Japan ⋅ 🌙 28 °C

    Yokohama is about an hour south of Tokyo, but it seems like it takes an hour to get places within Tokyo, so I find the whole distance thing here a bit confusing.

    The stadium is small - about 30k seats, and it was mostly full on a hot sticky weeknight, so the BayStars definitely draw. They don't win much, but this season they have won a few more than the Swallows, so they are both at the bottom of the Central Nippon League.

    Local kids stand on the field to greet they players as they are announced, and the players run out and meet the kids and sign their jerseys...it's a sweet way to start the game! The crowd chants the whole game, and the chants change to include each batters name as they come up (only the fans of the batting team chant.) We grabbed some bento boxes, a cucumber on a stick and some beer, got our seats and proceeded to chant along when we could figure out how.

    Girls go up and down the aisles constantly (every 5 minutes no exaggeration) dressed in the colors of the brand of beer they are selling with a mini keg on their backs. They smile and wave and look super happy, but they are the only Japanese women so far that I have seen break a sweat. There is a lot of beer consumed, and a lot of bento boxes.

    After so much running around the last couple of days, we only lasted about 4 innings before we headed home to bed, but it was a super cool experience and the boys definitely noticed differences between the baseball and and the baseball at home.

    The Diamond Princess

    April 11, 2019 in Japan ⋅ 🌬 14 °C

    Our metro tickets got us a good way out of Tokyo but not to the cruise port. So we had to get off at Meguro metro and buy a train ticket to Nihon-Odori. Annoyingly we would actually be getting back on the same train on which we'd arrived; it apparently became a 'train' rather than a 'metro' at Meguro. However finding how and where to buy tickets from became a bit of a mission. Whilst the ticket machines have English options, tickets are sold by distance travelled rather than by station travelling to...argh! Google was great at giving us the route and getting us this far but this was another matter entirely. After trying to converse across a language barrier, we eventually found a map on which the cost of each station was noted and we took a chance on the ticket we needed.

    At Nihon-Odori, having managed to get out of the station with our tickets, we walked to the port and boarded the Diamond Princess, along with 2,800 other passengers. Throwing the luggage in the stateroom, and watching the dodgiest safety video ever (where the safety instructions were sung to the Love Boat theme time) we headed upstairs for sailaway. Impressively, we sailed under a bridge with just two metres clearance, whilst the cruise director and staff danced joyously to Gangnam Style underneath.

    The evening was Ben's time to shine - music trivia. 20 tiny snippets of song introductions, from which the goal was to name the song and the artist. We/he scored an impressive 26/40 but sadly not enough to win the champagne. So we headed off to dinner where we avoided talking to the tables next to us, enjoyed a lovely meal and then headed back to the room to read.

    September 17, 2018 in Japan ⋅ 28 °C

    Heute ging es raus aus Tokio nach Yokohama. Micha wollte gern zu Mooneyes, einem bekannten Laden in der Hot Rod Szene für Autozubehör. Und wenn wir schonmal hier sind, schauen wir uns doch mal an, was die Stadt noch so zu bieten hat. Da wir um die 30 Grad hatten, haben wir es schön langsam angehen lassen...

    Also sind wir vom Kreuzfahrtterminal nach Chinatown geschlendert. Schon komisch, so ein Chinatown in Japan fällt eigentlich hier gar nicht so wirklich auf. Es ist ja nicht so ein krasser Kulturunterschied wie zum Beispiel in London.

    June 3, 2016 in Japan ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    I really like the landscape parks in the bigger cities. They are basically an escape from the crowdedness and noise from the city streets. I found one online that looked pretty cool and was not too far away: Koishikawa korakuen. This park next to the Tokyo Sky Dome is relatively large for a park. The entrance fee was only 300 yen so i decided to go in. The park is dotted with lakes and ponds and bridges connect several small islands. The parks abundant trees allowed for some nice strolling in the shade. I gues it's not that popular with the younger crownd in Tokyo since most people were way over 60. After an hour walking around i had seen the entire park and thought it was time to go to Yokohma.
    Even though Yokohama is pretty close to Tokyo and it's actually pretty hard to see where one city begins and the other ends, i had not yet visited this place. There was nothing of my particular interest so i decided to go to the rebuillt harbour district. This used to be a big port with warehouses but has been converted to a huge shopping center with theme park and loads of restaurants. It was only a half hour trainride from my hostel to the harbour district. These last couple of days have been really warm and as i got out of the airconditioned train and the hot humid air made me sweat almost immediately. It took some time for me to figure out where to go which is not unusual with a lot of signs that are mostly in kanji. But with a little help from Google maps i found my bearings and set off into the harbor district. The first half hour of walking took me through various huge and expensive shopping malls. Interesting to see but not my cup of tea. I walked passed the theme park where i could hear the kids screaming as they rushed down in one of the rollercoasters. I read somewhere online that the red brick warehouses contained sever very interesting restaurants and i decided to check it out. Halfway to the warehouses i suddenly heard a lady screaming for joy at a truck that was parked at the side of the road. As i got closer I realised this was not a regular truck. The movie Deadpool had just been released in Japan and so a huge deadpool statue in an interesting pose was placed on this truck and then just driven around town. Meanwhile the soundtack for the movie was screaming out of the speakers. Aahh yes these are the kind of things that make me love Japan. I took some quick pictures and went on to the red brick warehouses. It was getting really hot and uncomfortable in the sun and that gave me a good excuse to go into a restaurant for some lunch. I checked several restaurants before choosing one that sells Hawaiian burgers which is basically a burger with avocado. But boy is it delicious! I took some time to really enjoy and let the food settle for a bit before heading of to Yokohmama's chinatown. This is one of Japans biggest chinatowns and it shows. Literally dozens of streets litterd with shops and restaurants that serve chinese food. I found a nice and colorfully decorated temple and walked around in the backstreets some more before going back to the station and joining Jimmy and some other guests in yet another drinking session at Nui's.

    הצ'יינהטאון של יוקוהמה

    August 31, 2015 in Japan ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    הצ'יינהטאון הכי גדולה ביפן. אני מתה על צ'יינהטאון'ס אז ממש התלהבתי לבוא לבקר פה!

    זה היה כמו צ'יינהטאון סטנדרטית רק מינוס האנשים, הרעש וההמולה. אז בעצם לא כמו צ'יינהטאון בכלל.

    שוק עם מוצרים באיכות made in china ואוכל ממוצע. מאכזב.
