The two things we definitely don’t have in the Philippines are snow and Disneyland. Luckily, we had the chance to travel up to the mountains, and visit the happiest place on earth during our short stay in Japan.
Lake Kawaguchico Lake Kawaguchiko is the largest of the five fuji lakes. The scenery was simple yet breathtaking. We haven’t seen snow in more than a year, but I didn’t forget about the aching cold climate, or how you should wear water-proof clothes for a snowball fight. So I came prepared; five layers of clothing and my trusty bubble jacket served me well.
If i’m not mistaken, Lake Oshino dried up and became a natural monument. We were finally able to get a glimpse of Mount Fuji. For a mountain, it camouflages really well with the clouds. I also spotted corn and frozen fish, weird things I never expected to come across, especially in the mountains. This is what I love about traveling: you get to experience different cultures.
Gotemba Premium Outlets We couldn’t leave without shopping 🙂 Can I just say, if anything, spend your money on the Godiva hot chocolate. It’s heaven in a cup.
I’ve gotten so used to visiting Hongkong Disneyland, so going to a different one was a pleasant change. We decided to ride Monsters Inc. Ride and Go Seek, Starwars Tours, Beaver Brothers Canoes and Big Thunder Mountain. Besides the rides, one particular “japan only” product sold all over the theme park was flavored popcorn packed in disney character containers. To no surprise, I got the best droid in the whole universe, R2D2 🙂
