上个星期休息的时候长滨之行

上个星期休息的时候长滨之行 在日本,上个星期是黄金周,很多人都休息。我也一个星期都休息。在星期三和星期四,我和我的朋友去长滨和彦根了。长滨和彦根在琵琶湖的旁边。从东京大概坐三个小时新干线,能到长滨。在长滨,我们去铁路博物馆儿看了很多火车。午饭我们吃近江牛冬面,好吃极了。彦根是一个离长滨很近的城市,坐电车十分钟能到彦根。在彦根,我们去彦根城,看彦根的海宝。海宝是一只很有名的猫。逛了彦根城后,我们坐船游览琵琶湖。湖里有一个海岛。我们逛这个海岛,照了很多照片。在晚上,我们坐新干线回东京来。虽然这次旅行时间比较短,但是我觉得很多有意思。

PIXAR Exhibition @ MOT

PIXAR Exhibition @ MOT Everyone loves PIXAR movies. Which is why I was not surprised to see a huge, excited crowd at the PIXAR exhibition which open this month at the Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo.
