日本 – 东京 2018 (Part 21 河口湖天上山公园) 2018

我的#日本 #东京 之旅 (Part 21) #河口湖天上山公园

united 3

从忍野八海,我们又在河口湖站下车。我们这次的目的地是距离河口湖站不远的河口湖天上山公园只要步行去就能到达。天上山公园是可眺望到一览无遗的富士山和河口湖,可说是富士山最棒的景点之一。

你可以乘坐红线巴士或步行到缆车站。大约走了10分钟的路程我们就抵达了Kachi Kachi空中缆车,而官方名称是(河口湖天上山ロープウェイ)。缆车得长度约460米,乘搭缆车就能直接到达天上山公园的观景台。

你知道吗,天山公园是以“喀擦喀擦山”民间故事为背景的景点。由于故事有太多版本,也不知那个是正确的所以有兴趣者能自己去寻找。当然它只是个故事所以不要太认真。由于这故事的缘故,你可以看这儿的缆车和观景台周围都是以Tanuki及兔子娃娃为装饰品。

这儿的缆车票是机器售卖的。从机器买完票后,我们便搭上了缆车。虽是短短3分钟的缆车路程,我们很开心可以在空中观看河口湖的风景。从缆车出来后,步行约5分左右就可到达观景台。在海拔1000米以上的观景台,你可以一次过仰望富士山,河口湖以及青木原(日语:青木ヶ原)的全景。在观景台上其中一边富士山那壮丽的全景及它山脚下有如火柴盒般小密集的建筑物就在你的眼前。而另一边我们则可看到重峦叠嶂的青木原及水平如镜的河口湖。在这湖光山色的美景就让我们用眼好好的去观看用心好好去享受吧。

随着富士山的壮观景色,您还可以在“Tenuki茶屋”享受一些食物和饮料。除此之外他们还有出售Kachi-Kachi和富士山的纪念品。在游玩河口湖天上公园后,我们又再次乘搭缆车下山了。缆车的价格为往返800日元,单程为720日元(单人价)。运行时间从上午9点(冬季上午9点30分)到下午5点10分(冬季下午4点40分)。对于那些想乘搭复古巴士游览富士五湖,乘搭游船游览河口湖,乘搭缆车上河口湖天上上公园,你们可以以优惠价购买套票。

在河口湖里,我们走进一家芝士蛋糕屋,品尝特制的手工芝士蛋糕。当我把那香气扑鼻的芝士蛋糕放进嘴里,香味弥漫芝士蛋糕在我的嘴里旋转着,完全征服了我的味蕾在加上一杯香喷喷的咖啡,非常完美。哦! 简直是超级幸福。

 

 

 

 

来到这,我们当然也不会忘记购买这儿的传统手信。至于回去东京的巴士我们同样的也是在网上提前购买18点40分左右的高速公路巴士票。好啦,富士山一日游就这样结束了。

这次去富士山游我们计划去位于湖口湖和山中湖之间湖前湖的遗址,那就是忍野八海。它是位于富士五湖地区的一个小村庄,忍野湖曾经干竭,变为盆地,但涌水口泽变为泉水,即今日的忍野八海。

在河口湖站,游客可以乘坐观光巴士“富士急行”在忍野八海并在入口站下车。您也可以选择搭乘巴士,在“忍野八海”站下车。由于节省交通费用,所以我们决定乘坐巴士,然后前往6号巴士站等候巴士。如果你担心坐错巴士,你可以在那儿巴士站的显示牌确定你要到达的目的地。

别问我为何这表情?

 

到达“忍野八海”的交通费用大概于680日元左右(这儿可使用Pasmo 卡)。注意: 前往忍野的巴士趟数并不多,时间也没那么紧密。所以最好查看巴士时间表。

在前往“忍野八海”的途中经过一个名为 “忍者主题村”的景点。忍者因为日本战国时期的沉默刺客而闻名世界,它也是神秘日本最有趣的文化特征之一。忍者村被为“Shinobi”而不是“Sato”,这里是一个小型公园区,这里藏有机关、暗器以及秘密通道的「忍者机关屋」把您带回到忍者和武士的时代。你可以学习忍者的生活膳食,甚至学扔飞镖。忍者村还有纪念品商店出售忍者纪念品。由于这次的安排只是一日游时间有限,我们并没有参观只是在周围拍照。

挑战60秒!!!到底60秒了吗?我的手要冻僵了。想要知道什么东西是60秒就来探个究竟吧。

走几分钟,我们抵达忍野八海,以富士山的泉水而闻名。Hakkai的字面意思是“八海”,但它实际上只是八个泉池。来自富士山的雪水通过熔岩过滤十年以上,并为这些泉池提供清澈清新的泉水。它在1985年被列入日本100个最佳水域之列,并于2013年与富士山一起被指定为世界遗产。

这里的旅游主要景点之一是水约8米深的泉池名为湧池。它有一个以龙装饰的泉池,那清凉的泉水是可以饮用的。现在我知道为什么虽然它只有泉池那么的大小可是还被称为大海。那是因为它那清澈见底的水能让人家看到淡水植物及鱼儿在水中游,有如让人身在蓝色大海的错觉。

这里我们呼吸着大自然的清新空气,漫步在美丽的大自然环境中。这里建筑屋虽然不太现代化,它们依然保持着传统日本建筑的形态加上美丽大自然为背景形成了另一种美。

我们同时也参观了一间名为“榛木林資料館”小型户外博物馆,入门票价格为300日元。它不仅是一座博物馆,也是另一个拥有最大泉池截然不同的大自然环境。資料館本身开放了18世纪后期的忍野村建造的最古老的茅草屋顶的旧渡边(Watanabe)房屋,馆内展示各种农具、家具、居家用品显示德川时代的武器如武士、盔甲、武器和重要文件等。在以富士山为背景同时在加上传统农家茅草屋美丽的大自然让人家不知不觉拍了许多美照。

忍野八海在泉池周围有许多餐馆,纪念品商店和食品摊贩。看!我们在这找到了我们的最爱美食之一“烤番薯”! 在这寒冷的天气,吃着热乎乎又好吃的烤番薯简直是太开心了。由于忍野清澈的泉水,让这儿的荞麦面成为其中一个大众美食之一。由于我们还要去下个目的地,所以决定在河口湖才吃午餐。好吧,让我们现在就去巴士站等巴士了。。。。

We say goodbye to Little Mermaid Ariel, let us go to “Port Discovery”. In Disneysea, Port Discovery, this futuristic marina located across the horizons of time. In the Aquatopia Attraction we try out some of the experience, with board into Aquatopia to move and spin with unexpected danger go through the rocks, a lagoon amid waterfalls and whirlpools.

 

 

Nemo! Nemo! Where are you, we want find you! Oh where is Nemo? Come and follow us board a submersible and finding Nemo. Sneak into the Ocean, a journey through a unique adventure across the ocean and exploring the marine life. Of cause, we meet Nemo, Dory and Marlin and everyone is familiar with the Disney star. It immerses you into the worlds of Finding Nemo.

However you also ride into an elevated electric trolley, with the 2ft6 in (762 mm) narrow gauge DisneySea Electric Railway, to and from the American Waterfront. A beautiful DisneySea America harbor that is somehow familiar, even through its your first view it.

Arrived at America Waterfront, we walk into another time tunnel, the early 20th century of New York, New England and Cape Cod with themed harbour. You’ll find both the excitement of the big city and the charms of a New England village in this vibrant themed port. In America Waterfront, this city’s backstory revolves around the wealthy Harrison Hightower III, whose power grew stronger amid New York.

We take a leisurely stroll in the full of American flavor, walk in the New York City, Main Street USA and American Adventure. America styled of department stores and restaurants complete with an elevated railway, a classic American Theater and a harbor displaying a large range of boats, these aspects contribute to give this area more America Street feel. American Waterfront boasts more places to eat than any other area of the Park. In DisneySea, we are so happy for eat the America Style of fast food set with reasonable price.

In America Waterfront, it can easy view Harrison Hightower III, his S.S. Columbia and his Hightower Hotel, symbols of his might, until he mysteriously disappeared after snatching a cursed African idol. In New York stands the hotel knows as Tower of Terror so called after the mysterious disappearance of its owner in 1899.

IMG20180216172223

A hightower has a story

 

 

This is the real story, a background story of Harrison Hightower III was to hold a large-scale banquet in his luxurious Hotel Hightower to announce his acquisition of a strange statue named Shiriki Utundu, recovered on an expedition to a remote region of Africa. As Mr. Hightower was taking his statue to the hotel’s penthouse apartment, the elevator inexplicably came crashing down to the ground! The statue was the only thing found in the elevator; Mr. Hightower mysteriously disappeared without a trace. In the latter period, “New York City Preservation Society” considered the Tower Hotel to be a “historic building with high value” and therefore carried out the restoration of the hotel. It stated give tour to the public.

But what happen when you take the elevator to the top floor. A terrifying experience await you. It’s classified as a thrill ride, but what makes this attraction so fantastic is a brilliant buildup to the heart-stopping climax. It became one of the popular rides in the Disney Sea.

You can also board one of the big city vehicles were popular in the early 20th century, right when automobiles began to take over from the horse-drawn carriages. Old fashioned automobiles that take us on leisurely drive through the City and we fell like born as 20th century New York City in style.

We love Broadway-themed and it is one of the big attractions in DisneySea. This is a first-rate theatre which play the show “Big Band Beat” with features dancers and a live band playing swing and jazz tunes from the 1940s. But the time of our visit, the show is rest. Oh! Really want to watch!

However, you also can join another 3D theme park, Toy Story Mania. Board a tram and play some fun carnival games with Woody, Buzz and their pals. Because we have watch the 3D show in the “ Arabian Coast”, so decide not to participate.

First class entertainment, enjoying a fantasy-story, a various active in adventures, cheerful ambience and various of attractive scenery are a big reason why at least 2 day visit in Disneysea, can be more relax for enjoying all of them without feeling boring.

 

 

Fantasmic! A big, essential part of what makes the DisneySea wonderful. A nighttime spectacular on the waters of “Mediterranean Harbour”, this spectacular entertainment features Mickey Mouse as the Sorcerer’s Apprentice who creates a fantastic world of Disney through his powers of imagination. Filled with special effects using gigantic water screens, lasers, lights, and fire, this dramatic show promises an evening of unforgettable fantasy and excitement for all. Characters from popular Disney films such as Aladdin and Cinderella appear on the huge water screens. And the climactic scene has Mickey fighting a gigantic dragon in this magical and dynamic nighttime spectacular in Mediterranean Harbor. The perfect way to end of our DisneySea trip with the spectacular Fantasmic!

Although we previously watched nighttime show at Disneyland in Shanghai. Of course, it is not the same kind of nighttime show, but for us, they all provide the best and pleasure of entertainment with different visuals and feelings.

We watch a Magic Lamp Theater show, with the world’s “greatest” magician and the Genie. NOTE: In Disneysea, not take photo inside the theater. For us, the show is fantastic with combined live-action / animatronic based magic show with a 3D movie featuring the Genie. The show let us laugh out loud, although the whole is mainly in Japanese.

While walking in Disneysea, we walk into deep within the remote Central America jungles, adventure into the remains of an ancient civilization, “Lost River Delta”. Among the ruins we find remains of the Aztec Pyramid (Mexico). Because of the seasonal, Indiana Jones Adventure: Temple of the Crystal Skull and Raging Spirits are closing temporary.

We go to watch the show again, a show of “Out of Shadowland”. a live theatrical show that a young woman named Mei, lost in a world of shadows who finds courage and confidence.

We have a dream is to visit all the Disney around the world. As a huge Disney fans, after continuing Shanghai Disney, of course we would not miss to visit Disney Resort in our Tokyo Trip. Walk into the Disney, is same as we walk into another different townlet. Walk into a wonderful townlet where we can experience some of the wonders of life, of adventure and feel better of it.

Yeah, normally you were well known of the Disneyland but in Tokyo it also has DisneySea that is unique to Japan in the world. Obviously both Disneyland and DisneySea are incredibly magical and experience a multitude of fun. If you have the luxury of time, getting a 3 to 4 day Tokyo Disney Pass for do its all entertainment at Tokyo Disney Resort’s both theme parks.

Many of the heart of us are in grown up with Disneyland, when we were children we are long for Disneyland. Disneyland is steeped in idealized memories of the childhood. The difference between Disneyland and DisneySea is Disneyland as for pioneering status in the world of theme parks, that makes Disneyland more historically significant and more classic.

While DisneySea suitable for all ages and are more adult-oriented, it was designed to specifically also appeal to a more grown up audience. The park provides a wider selection of table service restaurants than Tokyo Disneyland and by serving alcoholic beverages, which are unavailable at the neighboring park (Disneyland). Both of the theme parks for 1 day pass are same price and the cost is 7400 yen for each.

We only go for one day journey, we choose Tokyo DisneySea, built by the great adventures and imaginative of sea.It is a sea where great adventures and imaginative seas are built. The seven theme harbors of ports have brought everyone’s “EPCOT” heart and dreams become closer.The atmosphere and decoration of all of its theme regions are very realistic and it makes us feel as we’re are in it.

Follow us ride of the Electric Railway go to wonders of life and truly magical townlet. Take the Disney Resort line, a monorail that circles Tokyo Disney Resort, providing transportation between JR Maihama Station and major destinations within the Resort. Regardless of where you stop at the station, It cost 260 YEN for one-way ticket, and of course we are stationed under DisneySea. NOTE: PASMO cards can also be used.

In the Disney Resort Parks, the Fast Past ticket that getting to skip the queue and cover all your favorite rides with minimal queuing time. The machines are located beside the ride entrances and you simply have to scan the QR code on your printed e-ticket to receive a Fast Pass with a designated time period printed on it. The problem is Fast Pass ticket is limited quantity and the queues to the Fast Pass machine can take up to an hour.

We decide not take the Fast Past ticket and walk into the DisneySea. The park’s two symbols are the DisneySea Aqua Sphere – a water fountain with a large model of the earth – in the entrance plaza, and the volcano, Mount Prometheus, in the center of the park.

DisneySea has an overall nautical exploration theme to it. Inspired by the myths and legends of the sea, there are seven themed areas or “ports of call”. At here, we have the wrong impression of a time tunnel journey to the seaport, deem us really have arrived seaports of different countries.The entrance to the park is Mediterranean Harbor, which opens up to six more nautically themed ports: American Waterfront, Lost River Delta, Port Discovery, Mermaid Lagoon, Arabian Coast, and Mysterious Island.

  REMEMBER: You must take the Disney Sea Guide Map from the staff and if you want view for unforgettable Disney Entertainment go to public notice near the entrance gate, make sure the time of show schedule.

Japan – Tokyo (Yasukuni Shrine) 2018

united 2

Visit a Shrine where is enormously controversial in the Asia-Pacific region. Walk into Yasukuni Shrine, was founded in 1869 with the dedicated to souls of about 2.5 million. In Shinto religion, the souls become ‘kami’, or revered spirits. As a Malaysian, once have facing the World War II, regarding possible moral issues, we don’t think a tourist with an open mind would have much to lose.

The souls, who made ultimate sacrifice for Japan war, in the conflicts accompanying the Meiji Restoration such as the Satsuma Rebellion, the First Sino-Japanese War, the Russo-Japanese War, World War I, the Manchurian Incident, the China Incident, the Greater East Asian War (World War II) and etc. These wars broke out as the starting point of modern Japan. Among the enshrined are Yoshida Shoin and Sakamoto Ryoma who are famous historic figures for their activities which lead to the Meiji Restoration. There also enshrined are many soldiers, men, women and children, including various pet animals, whose died in wars.

Entrance to Yasukuni Shrine, first we are go through the massive gray, metal Daiichi Torii (First Shrine Gate or Great Gate), one of the tallest torili in the Japan at 22m(72 feet). After that, passed through the Monument Of Hitachimaru and Soul-Comforting Spring, a memorial Fountain – Statue of a mother Offering water. In front of us is Japan’s first ever Western-style bronze statue, that of Omura Masujiro, the first Minister of War after the Meiji Restoration, which was erected in 1896.

Further on is the Daini Torii (Second Shrine Gate), which is a smaller arch than the first, and right beyond it the Shinmon gate (pagoda-style rather than an arch) which leads into the shrine area. We walk to another arch, the Chumon Torii (Third Shrine Gate) leads into the courtyard of the Haiden Main Hall. Haiden Main Hall is where people pay their respects. NOTE: No allowed take photo of the Haiden. Behind Main Hall is the Honden Main Shrine, but it is usually strictly restricted access.

Even in today’s Japan, people believed that souls of the deceased remain eternally on earth and guard there, and thus as an object of worshipping because such traditional way of thinking along with the belief of Shinto is still inherited. Yasukuni shrine not only is a place to commemorate in a manner of Shinto, a traditional Japanese faith and a place for all the Japanese to show their appreciation and respect to those who died to protect their country.

Probably, people who cherish their own positions, ideas and reason will understand the difference and will understand the importance of Yasukuni Shrine which was established for commemorate and to show appreciation and respect to those who dedicated their precious lives to their mother country .
