Our original plan for our day off was to go hiking. But once again Mother Nature wasn’t on our side and Nagoya was filled with rain and black ominous clouds. So we decided to check out the Science Museum and Planetarium instead. Nagoya’s Planetarium is actually the largest Planetarium in the world! And since I’ve never been to a Planetarium I thought it would be a good excuse to go. The only downside is that the shows are only in Japanese so you have to relay on the visuals and your imagination. Yes, that giant sphere is the Planetarium!
We were surprised at how cheap the admission was! It was only 1300 yen ($12) for the two if us. Not bad for a 3 hour science lesson!
First stop: The Deep Freeze Lab. They had us put on very large full length fur lined coats before entering in to the lab. I’m not going to lie, it was kind of nice and refreshing to be in a room that was only -30 Celsius! Maybe for a couple minutes that is!
Chemistry lesson: I thought this was pretty cool! The periodic table of elements with visuals!
Lesson # 3 : The Miracle of Life
After leaving the museum, we walked through a little park. Which I enjoyed because for a moment I forgot I was stuck in the concrete jungle.
