Yokohama

16 11 2009

From Hakone we took a local bus to Odawara station, took the Excellent Express 30000 romance car train to Shinjuku, then went out to Kichijoji to Deva Deva cafe. We ate pizzas and burgers with hot lemonade and ginger chai. Benno had a banana cheesecake to finish.

Then we headed south to Yokohama. We walked through MM21, past the Landmark Tower (the tallest building in Japan at 296m, apparently), the old sailing ship, the Cosmo World amusements, into World Porters and around the shops. It was still too misty to see across the bay to Kisarazu, or behind us to Mt Fuji.

We had dinner in Yokohama station’s Lumine department store at Chaya. We had another delicious meal – panini, bean curry, vegetable curry, millet burger followed by more desserts of berry pie, tofu cheesecake, nut caramel slice and a sweet potato slice. All very yum.

We walked off our dinner and rode on the tallest clock in the world, the Cosmo Clock ferris wheel. The view by night was very pretty, but we still couldn’t see Kisarazu across the bay.
