Blackcabbit's World

Blackcabbit (aka. Dionnie Takahashi) is an illustrator living in Japan. She loves drawing whimsical animal characters, as well as doing handmade crafts to beautify the world she lives in.

An Aviation Adventure

Last week, we brought Fireball and Twinkle-Bell to the Museum of Aeronautical Sciences (航空科学博物館), which is next to Narita Airport. The kids had been to a few train museums, but this is their first time at a plane museum. Aero museum Japan

Exhibition & Observation Room

Since the museum is located at the southern end of Narita Airport’s runway, we could see aeroplanes taking off at the observation room. On weekends, the museum offers guided explanation (in Japanese) to its visitors.Aeroplane museumThere are about 20 aircrafts displayed at the outdoor exhibit area.
