FujiQ Highland!

Hey everybody!
This is Lars from Sakura Hostel Asakusa again!

Do you like rollercoasters? Or Scary things? Or overall amusement parks?

If you like any of those, I can strongly recommend going to FujiQ Highland! They have some of the craziest rollercoasters!

Here is the website:

>>>Fuji-Q Highland<<<

My favorite was Fujiyama I think. It is 70m high and has a huge drop in the beginning! It was just an awesome feeling!

But there is much more. They have a super scary attraction too! But you have to be early for that, there will be people standing in line for that pretty quick!

If you like Evangelion, they have an Evlangelion World too!

Well there is much more, but it's better if you just go there and check it out! (:
You will have a great view on the mount Fuji too by the way!

See you around! (^_^)v

[Japan Info] Travel to meet Yuru-Chara -Part 1- [Tokyo Backpackers Hostel]

Hi, everyone! This is Ayu from Sakura Hostel Asakusa.

Have you ever heard about ''Yuru-Chara''?

''Yuru-Chara'' stands for ''Yurui'' (loose or cuddly) + ''Character'' (or mascots), and there has been a big craze in all over Japan for recent years.

You would have known some mascot characters for a baseball or football club, but Japanese Yuru-Chara are more than that.
Some even represent their local municipalities or government organizations!

Typical Yuru-Chara are in the shape of something famous for that place such as animal, food, or a great person in history.

I'm going to introduce those cute or interesting Yuru-Charas I have met im my trip.



Today's Yuru-Chara is called ''Wanmaru-kun'' from Inuyama-city in Aichi prefecture.

The Kanji spelling for Inuyama is 犬山, and (Inu) means dog. That's why he's a dog!
According to his official profile, he's a 10-year-old Shiba-Inu.

Inuyama is famous as an old castle town, so he's dressed in a samurai costume.
If you go to Inuyama castle, you'll have chance to see him!

140727-1 (Medium).JPG
Believe it or not, it is said that you'll have good luck if you touch his topknot!


Here is something common about these local Yuru-Charas, a vending machine with Wanmaru-kun! So cute!

Inuyama is not very big town, but I really liked its atomosphere as a castle town.
For more information, please refer to their website ⇒ Castle Town INUYAMA Japan

[Access]
Meitetsu Nagoya sta. - (Meitetsu Line, 25min) - Inuyama sta. / Inuyama-yuen sta.
Chubu Cetrair Intl. Airport - (Meitetsu μ-SKY Ltd Exp, 55min) - Inuyama sta. / Inuyama-yuen sta.
* There are 2 train stations near the castle town. I recommend to get off at one of them, and walk to the other after going to the castle.

A new Bus Tour through Tokyo!

Hey everybody!
This is Lars from Sakura Hostel Asakusa again!


This time I would like to share something with you I read on the news recently! Actually, I always read the BBC news, I don't really know why, but I like their way of reporting. But it's not about that.

8085149610_427c36e8f2_c.jpgPicture by: saebaryo

I read there, that there will be a new special bus tour through Tokyo! It is like an action bus tour! They call it "Ninja and Samurai Safari Tour". It will take about one our and guide you through Tokyo and there will be theatric scenes played by actors in Samurai and Ninja costumes!

And guess what, it will of course come to the historical district of Asakusa, where our beautiful hostel is located, too! ^_^

The ticket will maybe cost about 7000-8000 JPY. But I guess it will be worth it!

If one of you has the opportunity to take this bus, let us know how it was! (:
I bet it is a great experience!

See you around! (^_^)v

[Tokyo Info] Another National Stadium [Tokyo Backpackers Hostel]

Hi! This is Ayu, the football mania from Sakura Hostel Asakusa.

As some of you might already know, our National Stadium will be reconstructed for Tokyo Olympic 2020.

We had the final event on 31st of May, and now it's closed.


However, we still have another National Stadium actually!
Did you know that?


The stadium is originally called 'Nishigaoka National Soccer Stadium' and is now called 'Ajinomoto Field Nishigaoka'.
We, football fans, usually call it 'Nishigaoka'.



Last week, I went there to see a football match!

140723-1 (Medium).JPG

The match was the 2nd round of this year's Emperor's Cup Tournament.

Emperor's Cup is a competition to decide the "best football team in Japan'', so is open to every member club of the Japan Football Association,
from professional J-League teams to amateur teams such as top college and high school teams all over Japan.

On that day, I saw a match between two J2 (J-League 2nd div.) teams.
Can you see which teams they are from the photo below?


140723-2 (Medium).JPG
140723-3 (Medium).JPG

It was Tokyo Verdy vs Giravantz Kitakyushu.

What is good about this stadium is that it's specified for football!
In Japan, many of the stadiums are not specified for football, so you'll have a running track between the seats and the field.
This stadium is not so big (capacitiy: about 7,000) and you'll be so close to the field.
I could even hear what the coach was shouting out to the players!

There are not so many professional football games held in this stadium, but if you have chance, please visit there♪

[Access]
5-min walk from Motohasunuma station on Toei Subway Mita Line

Daidogei!

Hey everybody! How are you doing?

This is Lars from Sakura Hostel Asakusa again!
This time I would like to share some memories from a festival I went to when I was studying at Shizuoka University in (as you can guess :D) Shizuoka City.
This festival is held every year in November.

The festival is called daidogei (大道芸). There were street performers from all over the world who performed at this festival. Some of the performances were just breathtaking! Like this one guy, he was from china I think. He was doing a performance on a rope with jumps and everything! Have a look:

There is he on top of the rope:
P1000611.JPGAaaaaand jump!
P1000612.JPGAnd another one! Looks like he just fell out of the sky o_o
P1000614.JPGAaaaand he stood it all! Pure awesomeness!
P1000613.JPGBut besides this, there were lot's of different things! Of course lots to eat and to drink too! :P

And costumed people and this cute guy, sorrounded buy amazed kids^^
P1000591.JPG
If you wanna know more about this or even want to see more pictures, talk to me at the reception at Sakura Hostel Asakusa!

See you around! (^_^)v
