Nice to see new found Serp activity happening in Melbourne recently



They haven't been on the streets for long, but they seem to be Spreading The Disease like crazy, finding themselves in places such as Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto, Yokohama, Melbourne and Sydney.

Yokohama Ramen Museum & Soccer

Went with Az to...

The "Shinyokohama Raumen Museum" is a unique museum about ramen, a very popular Japanese noodle dish which was originally introduced from China.

In a gallery on the first floor, the Ramen Museum presents the history of ramen noodles in Japan, including the big success of instant ramen. It displays the variety of noodles, soups, toppings and bowls used across Japan, and shows how the noodles are made.
On the two basement floors, visitors can explore a 1 to 1 replica of some streets and houses of Shitamachi, the old town of Tokyo, of around the year 1958, when the popularity of ramen was rapidly increasing. Nine ramen restaurants can be found there, each featuring a ramen dish from a different region of Japan.

For visitors who wish to try multiple ramen dishes, every store offers "mini ramen", a small portion of the feature dish. Tickets for the meals are purchased at vending machines in front of each stores before entering.

And to the Soccer

Good Idea

Tsukiji Fish Market

Tsukiji Market is best known as one of the world's largest fish markets, handling over 2,000 tons of marine products per day. The sight of the many kinds of fresh fish, shellfish and other seafood and the busy atmosphere of scooters, trucks, sellers and buyers hurrying around.

Heading to the fish market means either rising very early, or no sleep at all. I went for the no sleep option in fear of not being able to wake. I left my house at 430am and road to Shibuya where I boarded the first train to the Market.

I got there just in time to witness the daily Tuna auctions. Every morning before the fish market officially opens they conduct a buyers auction. All the days massive Tuna are lined up in rows and numbered. Each Tuna creates a competitive bidding war and who ever wins the Tuna carts it of to their store to sell to the general public.
