Back at Tokyo Dome


Luke turns 3 soon and we wanted to take him to Asobono Land for his birthday, but due to meeting with other friends and a trip away for 3 days we couldn't get there on his birthday so we went today. Check out the photos of Asobono Land, Asobon is play in Japanese.

Lots of bouncing
The ball pit
