Fuji Q! Wooo!

GGB BC and GGB ChroMa hit up Fuji Q highlands for a day of fun, sun, rides, excitement, views of Fuji, thrills, rides, excitement…and fun!

Fuji Q was easy to get to, easy to sort tickets out, and a must do!

Transport - I recommend taking the bus, but we ended up getting the train. Simple summary here. Bus stop in Shinjuku is here.

Cost - transport was only ¥2000 a way on the bus (and around ¥2500 for the train). Cheap, efficient…relatively fast. Fuji Q highlands was only ¥5500 yen in. We got the ticket before hand here. Peak season pre-purchase is probably wise.

FUJI Q Wooooo!

We started the day with playing Smash on the train…as is tradition.

When we got the park we jumped on Takabisha…which was insane!!! The views of Fuji from this ride were so legit, but maaan was it scary. Super thrilling ride!

The wait was a couple of hours, but not an issue if you have your switches with you ;)

After this, we went on the infamous Fujiyama!!! It seems like a classic; as it is well known and old (lel). We went on that ride a couple of times. Very enjoyable!

Lunch was solid (and cheap). Beers were a little pricey…but why not. After this, we went on a beast of a coaster, called Eejanaika. Was really mental.

To finish off the day we had a nice walk from Fuji Q station to Kawaguchiko station. Good views of Fuji, and overall, awesome day!

Snow Pow!! Sugadaira Snowboarding with GGB!

February…time to hit the slopes again! GGB headed to Sugadaira, Nagano, from 9th - 11th for a nice lil’ getaway from Tokyo.

It was the first time going here but it didn’t disappoint!

The town was quaint and sleepy, but the slopes plentiful! It wasn’t packed despite being a 3 day weekend…which was nice :) Another upside was that most of the people were there were skiers…and skiers don’t like powder apparently. So it was nice and fresh and deep for us! Snow Pow! Woo!

Evening 1 we went on a nice night walk to the conbini (about 30 mins walk away) but the conditions were awesome for a night stroll. Well…it was freezing of course…

Day 2 consisted of lots of woodland courses and drinking with random Japanese peeps. We even got to play little blackjack with them!

Day 3 we hit the bigger slopes and saw some mad views. Preeeeetty beautiful

Overall, I would definitely recommend Sugadaira and I would happily go again.

It was really affordable (just 27,000 for 3 days for rental, accommodation (including dinner and breakfast) lift tickets and transport using this site ——> Ski Ichiba!), not so busy, not so far from Tokyo, and the slopes were good.

Super enjoyable GGB Snowbo trip :)

Get out to the slopes peeps before the season comes to an end!

Tokyo Shibuya Halloween 2000andWooo! (2018)

As is tradition, start from Harajuku (just North of Shibuya - 1 stop on the Yamamote line (green line))) and then grabbed some beers and slowly made our way south, towards the Shibuya crossing.
