Fun day out in Katsuyama

We left home early Wednesday morning to drive to Fukui prefecture where the ski-ground named Ski-Jam Katsuyama is located. 

There are ski-grounds closer to Osaka but this one has a great area for little kids to play in. The weather was warm and the sun was shining. Perfect day for playing in the snow...

After a good play we began the drive back home. We drove past a big sign that said Fukui Prefecture Dinosaur Museum (english website here) and decided to check it out...

The museum is open from 9:00-17:00 (closed every 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month) and is free for kids under 6yo (250yen for primary and secondary school students, 400yen for high school and college students, and 700yen for adults). 

It was a lot of fun! There were lots of skeletons of course, but also moving dinosaurs too. Really great place to visit if you are in the area!!
