That’s a Massive Ferris Wheel – Riding Cosmo Clock 21

In Yokohama’s Minatomirai 21 district, there are a lot of tall buildings (Landmark Tower), shopping centres, and it’s a very popular tourist attraction. One of the biggest things that stands out is Cosmo Clock 21, the second largest Ferris wheel in Japan, and one of the largest in the world. My sister and I rode it, and I took a video. So, check it out!

It’s huge, isn’t it? Can you ride on it? Let me know in the comments below.

Sightseeing Begins!

So, today is our first real day of sightseeing. Yesterday, we went to Costco. Nothing exciting to see there. Just shopping for two weeks’ worth of food. Last night, we did all of our planning. Unfortunately, we couldn’t fit everything into the two weeks. And tomorrow is raining, and we needed to do something family friendly that’s indoors, so no sightseeing.

Today, our plan is to go to Yokohama, around the Minatomirai area. We’ll be going to World Festa Yokohama 2015, where we’ll enjoy food, culture, and music from around the world. Then on to Cosmo World, where we might go on the Cosmo Clock (it’s really up to my sister). Then we get to go shopping a bit and see the Yokohama Museum of Art. And that will be it.

What do you think of this plan?
