Japan with kids #4

4 Apr

Visit to the Edo-Tokyo Museum.  Luckily we met a friend of a friend there and she guided us around the entire museum and made the visit so interesting for both us and the kids.

Walking to the train station after a delicious soba noodle lunch (in typhoon winds and rain).

Japanese arcades are the place to be.

Fell in love with this shop.

Visited exhibit by South Korean artist Lee Bull at the Mori Art Museum.  Pretty amazing.

Another city, another enormous spider sculpture by Louise Bourgeios.

Harajuku girl.Busy kids and the Tokyo skyline.

Pack of gum with little papers included (for the wads of chewed gum).

Future photographer?

    Great pictures! Noticed the Japan theme and immediately read the whole story about your trip. May I ask where the Edo-Tokyo museum is located? I’m currently living in Japan as an exchange student and that museum looks really interesting place to visit.
