Great report! Getting there early and those skip-the-line passes can really make or break a visit to Fuji-Q.

I love all of the pictures of the ride up! It was so pretty and there were, of course, more ferris wheels along the way. It was so easy to get to Fuji Q, Elissa couldn't have made it any easier to get there. Of course, the most difficult part is ....

:lol:

You always do a great job of recreating the day through text and this part is no different! There were so many parts of our Fuji Q day, and rightfully so since it was a 16-18 hour day, that this day deserves a 3 parter haha.

DoDoDonpa is so good. I'm happy that we have YOLOcoaster in the states now, it's a nice consolation prize. Keep this trip report rolling!

Glad you guys got such a clear look at Mt. Fuji. I had similar weather on my visit and it really helps the atmosphere there. Fuji-Q was actually one of the best days I had in Japan and so far it sounds like yours was great too.

And yeah, Shinjuku Station is pretty awful. I thought Osaka, Tokyo, and Kyoto Stations were much nicer and easier to get around.

It's just soooo big. And it was tough to find a route directly through it; I'm not sure if there was. If I was on the East side and needed to get to the West side I ended up just walking around; which took a while. It's all part of the fun of learning the area though. It really feels like a big accomplishment!

Thanks for the comments folks! really glad people are enjoying the report as I love writing them up - even when I try to be brief they end up long, LOL.


I was wondering about these too, and forgot to ask last night:

anyone know the "reasoning" behind the "pole dancers" on the Fujiyama station?

I noticed them, and snapped a pic, but couldn't quite figure out why they were on this specific ride.

I never noticed those. It might be one of the mascots.
