I had to make an emergency trip to Yokohama. I don't get out much. Here are a few pictures of the excitement:

First, we had the most amazing luck and ran across a poster for these little buggers, clionidae. I've always wanted to see some in real life.

They're also called Sea Angels and they sooth you absolutely when they swim.

Here's my rotten pic:

However, when a Clionidae eats, it turns into a ferocious beast. You see, their heads open up and well....

Excitement number two was momi tea. I believe it's from Hawaii, a kind of milk tea with enormous black tapiocas at the bottom.

J imbibing:

Look at the size of the tapioca!

Then, as if things couldn't get better, I saw this. It's an Eco Friendly taxi. Three hundred yen (about three bucks, I round numbers, btw) for well, I don't know what. But they had them everywhere in all different colors.

Here is what Yokohama, Minato Mirai looks like at night.

Just gorgeous.

And just think, I didn't even make it to China Town this time.
