The immediate fam decided to head down to Hiroshima a few days before my folks and Ko arrived. We had a JR rail pass, so we decided to make a stop on our way down. And we decided on the Osaka Kid Zone!
Here's the rest thus far...
Part 1 - Getting to Kawagoe
Part 2 - Minakami
Part 3 - To Jigokudani
Part 4 - Snow Monkeys!
Part 5 - Railway Museum, cousins
Part 6 - Tobu Zoo
|Obaachan, the porter on our way to the train station.|
|Double decker parking lots...|
|In the Shinkansen. Remember... the shinkansen is really nice. a 4 hour train ride is not uncomfortable. This isn't like a 4 hr chicken bus ride, so factor that in when you see the travel times listed.|
|The set up on the Shinkansen...|
|Look! Mt. Fuji!|
|Japan loves these cut outs...|
|At the entrance of the Osaka Kids Zone! Kai was mesmerized... he didn't want to go in and just wanted to watch...|
|Making a news show|
|there is a slide going from floor to floor!|
|and outside, there is a ridiculous (-ly awesome) playground.|
|bye bye Osaka!|
|back on the Shinkansen down to Hiroshima|
|Big Xmas tree outside the Hiroshima station.|
|And we made it safely to Becca's house.|
