We decided to combine the Mount Fuji trip with the Fuji-Q Highland amusement park. Although I am not very interested in amusement parks, Baris wanted to see the park and try the roller coasters which were once the world’s tallest and fastest.
The park had a great view of Mount Fuji, which was the part I was most interested in. Since it was the golden week in Japan the park was very crowded. All attractions had unbelievably long waiting hours, like 3 and a half hours! We were there with a few friends and that gave us the chance to leave the queue two by two, to have a rest, buy some food and walk around the park.
We spent the whole day in Fuji-Q land. It was interesting to see it, but such a waste of time to wait for the long queues. Now when I look back, I would have preferred a visit just to Mount Fuji, which I will do the next time I’m in Japan.
When we got back to Tokyo after a two hour train ride, we were tired, sleepy, cold and exhausted. Our friends in Tokyo took us to a very famous sushi bar that was downstairs at a metro station. There I ate the best sushi in my life. I was glad to end with this sushi bar and remember the day with the sushi taste in my mouth.
