Tokyo Disney Sea (Part 2)

If you read Part 1 of my Tokyo Disney Sea blog post, you were probably blown away by the sheer spectacularity of this one-of-a-kind theme park. If you weren’t, you’ve got to be kidding me!

Tokyo Disney Sea (Part 1)

While preparing our Tokyo travel itinerary, I wasn’t sure if I should include Tokyo Disney Sea. Mike, Eric, Paula, and I went to Hong Kong Disneyland just 8 months before going to Japan.

Stopping By 1881 Heritage

Art In Island, a 3-D Art Museum

“Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.” ― Edgar Degas Looking at art is usually a pleasure, but interacting with art? Now that’s an entirely unique experience!
