General view of the museum.

It is located in Shin-Yokohama, and is a kind of mixture of museum, amusement park and restaurant, or rather, restaurants, because there are nine in total. You can pay an entry for a single day for about 310 yen, a quarterly pass for 500 yen, or annual pass for 800 yen respectively. Of course every time we eat at one of those restaurants we have to pay for food.
