This was the post that was meant to read Noodle Adventures [And Camping in Exotic Japanese Mountains] – but alas, the weather had other plans for us.
So we stayed home for a few days in Tokyo, then decided to brave the elements and made a last minute overnight trip to our local escape location – Kamakura.
En route to Kamakura David, Sarah and I did the double noodle adventure. We visited the Cup Noodle Museum in Yokohama and the Ramen Museum in Shin-Yokohama. Both are great value and very interesting, but in my mind nothing can beat the Ramen Museum where you eat some of the best ramen in Japan! When it opened in 1994, it was the world’s first food-themed amusement park based on the amazing bowl of goodness that is ramen. Bowls also come in half-size portions, so you can on a good day sample at least 3 bowls before rolling home.
When in Kamakura we trekked around to visit all our old favourites (see here) and visited a few extra coffee shops and plant shops. Sarah and I possess a similar weakness for inside plants and things to hold them.
Of course we caught the adorable Enoden (during which Jake looked like this THE ENTIRE RIDE) to get dinner one night and explore the island of Enoshima, before returning to our AirBNB.
Thanks team Muratore – it was yet another fabulous trip! Sorry about the rain fail!
