Boating and going up and down the mountains of Hakone during the rain, then and another ramen museum!
Back on land, still raining ;<
Their gift shop
Aboard the cable car up the mountain
You're supposed to eat these raw black eggs while going up the mountain. I couldn't stand the taste of mine. My friend couldn't stand holding his. Oops!
We definitely chose the wrong day to go sight-seeing on Hakone mountain ;<
The engines that pull the rope and make it all happen
I had no idea what this was, but I just remember really wanting to hack it
This drink was amazing.
We were hungry, so we ate some simple ramen:
Taking the train back to the station
Another ramen museum
The first floor was the gallery and gift shop
Also on the first floor was a Japan Expo display
No Ramen, No Life.
The second floor was designed to mimic old school dark alley streets. Or something like that. Forgot orz
The very bottom floor was where all the ramen shops were. You choose one of them, go in, eat a bowl of ramen that is suppose to represent the ramen of a location. Note that you can't take the ramen outside the store, so you can't eat with your friends if they choose different stores ; (
And of course, we got some sake for that night ;3
Stay tuned for more
Japan Akihabara goodness!
