At this moment i would have to say Disney Sea. I don't see myself as a Disney fan.. but darn it.. this place was just amazing (wait untill you see the pictures ;) )

Looking forward to more great Hanno pictures!


Mad?? They are awesome :) within 5 minutes i got to see 2 things (how people interacted and dressed) i had only seen in videos of previous trips and assured me i was really there. Just awesome :)

But what is this guy doing?

pretty sure he was just running to get in the picture while there was nobody else standing there ;)

sorry, i did not take nearly enough pictures there i think (must have been the jetlag) ;)

Day 2: Space World

Home to Venus, which is a Maurer Söhne awesome intense looping coaster. Zaturn which is an Intamin rocket coaster (Stealth clone) and Titan which looks pretty big.
I managed to do something wrong to my body that morning so i decided to skip Zaturn and Titan (stupid me)
Guess i'll have to go back someday (win :) )

Managed to get all the other credits in before it started raining this day. I do not have pictures of all the rides at this park (and things to look at) It just feels good to sometimes just walk around a park and not worry about taking pictures all the time. Being in Japan and trying to take in everything felt more important at this time (or was it the jetlag or my hurting body?)

Anyway, hope you like them.
Feel free to comment

Day 3 part one: Kijima

This would be a 2 park day and some more bullet trains. First stop was Kijima, home of one of the few woodies in Japan and other fun rides.
Up "high" in the mountains the surrounding view was sometimes stunning :)

Anyway, hope you enjoy a few of the pictures i took at this park.
As usual, pictures are posted in the order that they were taken

Hanno-

As usual- a phenominal photo update; Kijima looks like a bizarre knock-off of someplace like Kennywood or related. The enclosed splashwaters fall (I'm guessing) is designed so people can't get wet on it... Did you get to ride it???

Looking forward to the next update, too!

The Intamin looper at Space world still looks a lot like a late Schwarzkopf looper..... :roll:

The "airy" seats on the ferris wheel look like big fun. And whats the use of an enclosed water-ride? Surely they have a lot of rain there.... :lmao:
