The Japan Newspaper Museum and Cup noodle museum 日本新聞博物館とカップヌードルミュージアム

I went to The Japan newspaper museum
to watch exhibition of Okinawa.

Permanent exhibition is interesting.

Asahi Shimbun uses this plane for
news coverage.

The museum is adjacent to Nihon
Odori station.  Admission fee is
500 yen.

Headline "One dollar = 308 yen".

The museum is less crowded.

If you like quiet place in Yokohama
I recommend this location.
CupNoodles museum might be amusing
to visit.

It is located in front of World Porters.
Admission fee is 500 yen. 
We took lunch at The Hof Braw.
This restaurant has operated sicne
Original menu "Spa Pizza" is

it tastes good.

How do you dry clothes on rainy season? 梅雨時の洗濯物の室内干について

I like watching hydrangeas on rainy
season but what I dislike on rainy
season is


drying clothes inside house.  I use
dehumidifier as our old W/D didn't
work well.  When I started to use
dryer,  it suddenly stopped. 


I read manual and I found that
I should clean dryer filter every
time I use dryer.

I was surprised to see so much
dust inside dryer filter. 

After cleaning,  dryer starts to
operate without problem.

Animals in Zoorasia ズーラシアの動物たち

I would like to visit Cactus Park to watch animals as distance to animals
is far at Zoorasia.  However, Zoorasia is the nearest zoo and admission
fee is only 600 yen,  I sometimes go to the zoo.

Since the ground is large for walking,  next time I might use van inside
the park.

3 elephant were given by Mumbai,
which is a sister city of Yokohama.

Bornean orangutan was eating leaves.
Sumatran tiger
Asian lion from India
Capybara from South America
