I'm trying to remember to snap more pictures as we commute, but I'm usually concentrating too hard on trying not to die, sweating, shaking, and telling Sean how to drive. I'm the best at that. Sean loveloveloves it when I tell him how to drive. Especially when I say(yell) super obvious things like, "ERT!" and "Don't run her over. DON'T RUN HER OVER!"
I do appreciate that even when you're doing your best to not run over pedestrians, mopeds, bicycles, and, oh, CARS, they throw in the random construction zone. In an intersection...around a curve. I will say, the Japanese people can pave a road, now. In a minute. Okay, a day, but compared to back home, they get the job done. We had one construction worker bow at us today. He held us up so a truck could get out and all the while he was smiling and nodding and bowing at us. :)
Anyways, the museum. Perfect for my guys. We had a great time.
These paintings are all 2D-flat on the walls and floors. The illusions and perspective blow my mind!
If we go back, I'd plan this one better and make them wear matching sweatshirts.
Jude didn't quite get all the illusions, but it just made for funnier pictures.
Best dad ever! Jude was not amused.
We spent way too much time at the crocodiles.
This one fits right in to the kawaii culture.
This was my favorite illusion. We had a ton of fun in this room!
They gave us a free drink token with admission. Simon took a video of how the drink machines work--it's awesome--and will probably post it on his blog.
After the museum, we went to what has quickly become our favorite sushi spot. I did tell Sean tonight that I have had my fill of sushi for the week and it's time for something else. It can't be beat, though. We ate 40 plates of sushi for what we would've spent on a Chick fil A dinner back home. And lemme tell ya, as much as I imagine I'll crave a Chick fil A sammich a year from now, it doesn't compare.
That was our adventure for today. Tomorrow makes one month that we've been here. Holy smokes, it's gone fast. It hasn't been without it's bumps in the road, but we're getting there. :)
