... We had to spend the entire 5 hours at the railway museum. That was a very long time in one place.
The museum itself was quite interesting, with lots of older trains and carriages, as well as rides for kiddies and adults alike. We went through the sheds with the old trains and carriages, before going on to a ride on a smaller train. After that, it was ride on an even smaller train.

The ink workshop we had was very interesting. We had to paint Mount Fuji along with the master. The placement of the marks was very important with the ink.
