Japan Trip - Day 2 of 5

2008.02.02

Main entrance of Le Meridian where our bus parked and waited patiently for us to kick start Japan Trip Day 2...

Can anyone tell me what is written on the blue con?

First stop, Shinkansen (Bullet Train). Why are we here? I guess Japan is famous for their bullet train. Fastest train in the world!? It may be just another means of transportation for Japanese but to us, it is like a roller coaster!!! Malaysian... ha ha ha
pixel
Tickets to roller coaster? nope.. shinkansen...
pixel
Helpful shinkansen attendant ever ready for help...
pixel
Hey... what are you looking at??? watch your steps...

WOW... never thought shinkansen could be this futuristic and beautiful... op top of that, it looks super duper clean...

Japan Trip Day 2 of 5

As usual, waking up early in the morning for breakfast and the start our journey exploring more about Japan… ha ha ha… another long and tiring day?

We kick off by heading for shinkansen, bullet train… cool… fast… again amazed and electrified as we don’t have them in Malaysia… However, nothing special when we ride in it as it felt the same. We took shinkansen to Odawara station and then a bus to Lake Ashi.

It took us a while to reach Lake Ashi and there was our first sighting on SNOW… Malaysian… hahahaha… excite over simple thing… hahahaha everyone starts taking pictures with the snow… while local Japanese looking at us smiling… We took our lunch here and spend some time sightseeing. The cooling, clean, soothing, beautiful surrounding of Lake Ashi make us miss Japan a lot.

Then we travel to Owakudani Natural Hot Spring, another great place for sightseeing. However, sulfurous fumes, hot springs and hot rivers can be experienced on a walk around the area. Eggs (Black in colour), boiled in the naturally hot waters, are said to prolong one's life by seven years and are readily available for sale.

From there, we travel to Gotemba for a little shopping before dinner and then back tired….

Day 3 – To be continue…
