I hope you are giving Fuji-Q a wide berth this time on general principle!

If you are going to Universal Studios Japan, you should stop and see my sister. She is performing in the American Pop Awards show.

This portion of our Asia 2009 trip is mostly Northern Japan. Kind of a "recon mission" to scope out some parks before potentially doing a trip!

While this Japan portion started out as much more of a "credit whore" trip, all of the parks so far have been great!!!

Check out the photos...

Image
This is the most awesome train station in Tokyo. Why? It has a McDonalds and an Intamin looping coaster nearby!

Image
There are so many trains! Where do we go?

Image
Yamanote Line of course!

Image
Welcome to Tokyo rush hour!

Image
Can you pick out the Westerner in this photo? I sure can't. Miles seems to blend right in.

Image
Welcome to Shibuya! Home to the largest crossing in Tokyo and....

Image
...our favorite Yakatori bar!

Image
This stuff is f**king amazing!!!

Image
"Which part do I eat first?"

Image
A real "man" would not consider this to be "chugging"...

Image
THIS is chugging!

Image
We could eat here all week long! (and we probably will).

Image
This place is freaking awesome! (and remember it's just across the street from the Disney Store in Shibuya!)

Image
Time to start our day of credit whiting across Japan!

Image
There are going to be a LOT of bullet trains on this trip!

Image
Mickey Mouse Sushi anyone? (this really is the most awesome thing ever!)

Image
What exactly is this ad selling???

Image
Crashed out on the bullet train! We will be arriving at our first park soon!

Image
We have arrived at our first Japanese credit whore park - Lina World! (aka Lima Bean World)

Image
It's cute!

Image
Welcome to Lima Bean World!

Image
First credit of the trip!

Image
Jetcorster?

Image
All of the coasters here are purple and yellow!

Image
It's Box Coaster The Ride.

Image
Yes!!! Bonus random dark ride!!

Image
Every park in Japan seems to have a Hello Kitty land.

Image
Back in the taxi. Time for the next park!

Image
We picked up some babes at the train station.

Image
I'm not sure what this is, but it makes me nervous.

Image
Another train to another park...

Image
"No Chuck! Don't press that button!!!"

Image
The train station wa pretty much in the middle of nowhere, Japan.

Image
Hooray for local taxis!

Image
Next stop...Sendai Hiland!

Image
Sendai Hiland is home to one of the most intense shuttle loops ever! OMG this coaster was insane!!!

Image
Are you all ready to pull about 40 Gs?

Image
This ride was completely awesome!

Image
They also had a pretty cool little mouse coaster.

Image
Even KidTums got the credit!

Image
The "blue coaster" also had some wicked airtime hills that took us by surprise.

Image
Lick it boys!

Image
Japanese Mexican food!!!

Image
Our last park of the day. Beneyland!

Image
It's nice looking!

Image
We found Gemini/Excalibur's long lost brother!!!

Image
Then we encountered another "coaster box the ride!"

Image
The bathroom privacy policy leaves something to be desired.

Image
GIANT. A$$. PANDA!!!

Image
Yay! An Arrow Corkscrew and it didn't kill us!

Image
The park kind of looks like this.

Image
Another bullet train!

Image
Today was a great day! Now back to Tokyo for a great night!

More Japan awesomeness!

Image
Next day - up way too early in the morning. KidTums has the right idea.

Image
I come prepared for the bullet trains!

Image
Mickey Mouse sushi anyone?

Image
In Japan Coca Cola is refreshing and uplifting! (make note Bryan and Adam!)

Image
We made it to our first park today! Koriyama Dreamland!

Image
OMG! The coaster...it's ... It's... "cute!"

Image
And it's decent too! This ride had "wierd" airtime on it.

Image
It's cute!!!

Image
Too much fun with the capsule machines.

Image
Blue us for boys potty.

Image
There is some scary Japanese cosplay going on!

Image
I'm not sure what this is but it makes me nervous!

Image
Park conquered! Back on the bullet train to the next park!

Image
KidTums is playing with her toy Jeff Johnson.

Image
On our way to another credit!

Image
Ok this place looks a bit sketchy.

Image
"Poke you in the eye Godzilla!!!"

Image
OMG!!! Yet again! The coaster....it's CUTE!

Image
Yay for more cute Japanese coasters!

Image
KidTums got the cute coaster credit!

Image
Dumbo looks like he was out on an all night bender!

Image
I am SURE this Mickey ride is an official Disney product.

Image
I'm not exactly sure what this shop was selling and I'm not sure I want to find out.

Image
We should make a quick lunch stop before heading to the train station.

Image
Kristen has a science to how she eats her fries. I wonder where she gets that from?

Image
Vie de France? I hear they have fantasic bread bowls that you can put clam chowder in.

Image
I usually LOVE the bizarre Fanta flavors but diet bubble gum cider was NASTY!!!

Image
The final park of the day, Tochinoki Family Land was a ten minute walk from the station.

Image
They had a great "Jet Coaster" here also!

Image
"Watch out for some surprise airtime on some of those hills'l

Image
KidTums is learning to drive!

Image
And she's also learning to fly!

Image
Another great little fun park! What was originally a "credit whore" trip has resulted in some hidden gems!

Image
We had about a one mile walk between two train stations. This resulted in some "interesting" photos.

Image
I'm CRAZZZZZYYYYY CREPE'S!!!! Gimme some Nutella.

Image
I'm not sure what this is, but it makes me quiver an abnormal amount!

Image
Go! Go! Power Rangers!!!

Image
WHAT. THE. PHUUUUQUE!!!

Image
Karaoke bar! Score!!!

Image
Hamburger capsule machine! Yummm!

Image
We didn't have time to go check this out, but I'm sure it's amazing!

Image
Culture credit!!! Cha-ching!!!

Image
Aww...poor sick Giant A$$ Pandas.

Image
We are soooo there!

Image
"Please don't kill me! Just take my wallet! Here!!!"

Image
Where is Hot Fuzz Rich when you need him?

Image
I spy a WEENIE!!!

Image
Yay! We made it to the station.

Image
Where are you, Bob?

Image
Yay! Double Decker bullet trains! Mmmmm... Double Deckers...

Image
Crashed out!!!

Image
Another Yakitori bar credit!!!

Image
This one wasn't quite as good as the yakitori bar in Shibuya but it had some interesting things on the menu...

Image
"Yup I'm totally eating chicken beak!"

Image
Chicken Testicles or Anal Beads...you decide!

Chicken Testicles are on my list of things to try. Of course I was going to have them at Chinois on Main in SaMo.

Damn, this looks like such a fun trip!
