great pics, Chuck.

loving some of that Godzilla merch, but now very intrigued by the Wasabi Kit Kats. The local HMart carries the Macha Green Tea version. . I might have to go ask them if they will special order the Wasabi for me so I can try it.

if not, then off to Amazon! :)

I liked the wasabi KitKats a lot. The chocolate mint is good, too--I think it would be a bit hit in the U.S.

Do they have wasabi DARK chocolate KitKats? I bet they do! Such perfection! Looks like there is NOTHING you can't find in Japan!

The Curious Case of the Good Day at Fuji Q

After making my rounds to visit my patients, I, Dr. John Watson, returned to my flat at 221B Baker Street. I found my friend and colleague, Sherlock Holmes, sitting in his accustomed chair. He was examining a photograph, which sat on his lap. As usual, he was lost in thought.

We stayed silent for a few moments.

“Watson,” the great detective said, “what do you make of this?” He handed the photograph to me, then walked over to the mantle and grabbed his Meerschaum pipe.

I shrugged. “It’s Mt. Fuji in Japan, shrouded by clouds,” I replied.

“Very good," said Holmes. “But I was referring to the place at the foot of the famous volcano.”

I shuddered. “Fuji Q? Holmes, what can that cursed place have to do with us?”

Holmes moved to the window. He gazed for a few moments at the other inhabitants of Baker Street as they went about their business unaware that the Place that Shall Not be Named had, in fact, been named.

“So, this place is known it you?”

“Yes.”

“You know of its singular reputation?”

“The long waits, odd weather and loose-item policies, bad food, and low-capacity attractions?”

“The same.”

I walked over to him. “You still haven’t answered my question, Holmes.”

“What would you say if I told you that someone who dislikes Fuji Q had spent a pleasant day there recently, say, within the last few months?”

I pondered this for a moment. “That, perhaps, you were misinformed?”

“Ah,” said Holmes. “And if I were to tell you that scarcely a week later, others of trustworthy reputation had reported having the customary ‘bad’ day at the same place?”

Again, I pondered my old friend’s words. “I would scarce know what to say, except that the latter report seems more likely to me.”

Holmes turned away from the window and strolled to the hearth. He stuffed his pipe full of fresh tobacco, which he kept in an old Persian slipper on the mantle.

“Yes, I think this could prove to be a three-pipe problem,” said Holmes. “Let’s look into this matter a bit more closely.”

He sat in his chair. “Be a good fellow and go online to themeparkreview.com and see what you find.”

He puffed furiously on his pipe as I went to get my laptop.

I could scarcely believe what I’d read. A third of the way into this man’s report, and nary a negative thing had been said about Fuji Q.

Holmes was on his second pipe.

Is it redundant to say "R.I.P. Haunted Hospital"...? ;)

Everything looks great there, back at F-Q, Chuck.

Volcano food! That would be different than the usual bowls they used to serve, there.

Looking forward (but never back) to more, Chuck!

Holmes lit his third pipe. “So, Watson . . . what have you ascertained?

“I’m not sure, Holmes--other than Fuji Q can surprise you from time to time.”

“Elementary, indeed, my dear Watson.”
