It’s hot every day here in Japan.
日本では毎日熱い日々が続いています。

I’m drinking plenty of water to combat heat exhaustionnnnn!
熱中症に気をつけながら、水をたくさん飲んでいますっ!!

It feels like this year is a little bit hotter than usual, too.
今年はやはり、なんだか去年より熱いような気がしますよね。

Make sure you’re drinking plenty of water too!
みんなさん、水分をよくとって気をつけましょう!

Just a few weeks ago, Mount Fuji became an official world heritage site.
数週間、富士山がユネスコの世界文化遺産に登録されましたよね

I went to the very same Mount Fuji a few weeks ago myself for work.
そんな富士山、実は私もこの前いってきました。

Megwin, who is famous from Youtube Japan, came along as well.
YouTubeで人気である、MEGWINさんも一緒にきました。

We drove up to the 5th station by car, and had a look around.
車で5合目まで行 って、降りてぶらぶらしました。

The Melon Bread available at the 5th station of Mount Fuji is really really good.
5合目で食べれる富士メロンパン、本当に美味しかったです!

They make the bread fresh right there, so you can eat it freshly made immediately.
その場で作られているので、焼きたての物をすぐに食べれます。

I recommend it to anyone who tours up there.
観光で行く方に是非おすすめします!

There are tons of souvenirs available for Mount Fuji, but for hot days like we have now, this is by far the best one:
富士山では、お土産いろいろあるけど、この暑い日々には、やはり冷たい飲み物がぴったりですよね:

Fuji-san Cider, and Fuji-san Cola!
富士山サイダーと、富士山コーラを飲ませていただきました!

Apparently the cola tastes the way “old fashioned cola” used to. (I wouldn’t know. I’m young.)
コーラの方が、昔のコーラの味がしている・・・らしい。(若いので、知らないです。)

But it was still really refreshing to drink.
とにかく飲んですっきりしました。

Finally, Megwin and I visited the popular amusement park, Fuji Q Highland!
最後に、MEGWINさんと人気の遊園地の富士急ハイランドに訪れました!

I was there for work, but the staff and I rode roller coasters and took video footage all day long.
仕事でしたけど、スタッフさんとみんなでジェットコースターに乗って映像を撮ってたりしました。

I really love roller coasters, so it was a very good day for me.
コースターが大好きなわたしにとって、とても幸せな一日でした。

It barely even felt like work ♬
まるで仕事じゃなかった気分♬

The finished videos have already been broadcast.
出来上がった動画はすでに配信しましたよ。

You can see them on Nestle Amuse’s homepage if you really want to.
見たい方はネスレアミューズのほうで見ることができます。

But I really wanted to share the photos I took that day since the weather was so nice and I had a good time.
だけど、楽しくて、天気もよくて、なかなか面白い写真たくさん撮りましたので、一応シェアしたかっただけです。

Have you ever been to Mt. Fuji?
富士山、行ったことありますか?

Maybe next time I’ll actually try climbing it. Hehe.
今度上ることに挑戦してみようかなー (笑)

Alright, catch you next time!
それでは、またね!

  1. I hope you know how lucky, lucky, lucky you are!!! ^^
    I visited the area around Mt. Fuji (Shizuoka as well as Yamanashi) many, many, MANY times and apart from 2 lucky days I’ve NEVER had ANY luck with it!
    Always hiding behind clouds, rainy weather – or even clear weather and yet we couldn’t see the volcano!😦

    Oh, and of course I climbed Mt. Fuji during a typhoon.
    Just don’t have much luck with this mountain, but as I love it so much I try again and again. *g*

    Awesome photos! (*__*)b

  2. I went to Fuji-Q in May and had an awesome time. Unfortunately the ride I wanted to do most was closed for repairs (the red and black coaster with the revolving seats). Got some classic “serious face” photos from the other coaster photo booths though.
    As much as I like coasters though, I think I liked the pizza-la ride the most. A very new experience.

    I really should have put more emphasis on climbing mount Fuji while I was there though. It was just a couple weeks before it was admitted as a world heritage site.

    1. I hope it’s ok if I answer that question.
      That photo was most likely taken at Lake Kawaguchi (aka Kawaguchiko) one of the 5 Fuji Lakes, but in my opinion the one that offers the best views of Mt. Fuji!😀

      1. Thanks for your reply🙂

        I’m visiting Japan next year and I want to go visit Mt Fuji and the 5 Lakes (well, some of the 5) and I’ve been reading about the best lakes to visit. Kawaguchiko seems to be the one to go, right?

        ciaela, that photo looks amazing, congrats🙂

      2. Lake Kawaguchi is the easiest to access, especially if you intend to use public transportation. For the other lakes it would be better if you had a rental car set up!😉
        I’ve been to Kawaguchiko a few times and I REALLY love it there!

        I also recommend you visit nearby Chureito Pagoda. Maybe you’ve seen photos of it. It’s a red pagoda and you’ll have Mt. Fuji in the background. ^^

      3. Yeah, I know Chureito Pagoda (from photos). I’ll probably need to one night on the area because I was planning on going on a one day trip from Tokyo to the Mt Fuji area, but it seems there’s a lot to see around there🙂 Or maybe I can use the 2-day Fuji Hakone Pass ( http://www.japan-guide.com/e/e2358_014.html ) to go to the area two days in a row. Have to decide what’s best🙂

  3. 楽しそうですね。いつか、富士山に登るかもしれない。そして、富士山メロンパンが美味しそうだから、食べてみます。
    ミカエラさんは富士山に登る時、頑張って下さい。

  4. はじめまして ミカエラさん
    僕は来月からカナダにホームステイしに行くのですが、ホストファミリーへのお土産は何がいいと思いますか?

  5. hi, I am so sorry to spam here on your blog, but I couldn’t find your e-mail and I don’t have facebook, so I’ll just leave my message here… Hopefully you won’t be mad:)
    In any case – have a nice day!:)

    “Hi, Mikaela!
    I am your subscriber and I am really enjoying you videos for quite a long time. I happen to be in Fukuoka for a summer japanese course and I thought that maybe if you’d like (and will have free time), we could maybe meet for a coffee?:) Please, let me know!

    Best regards,
    Maja

    PS: I am not an old stalker, I am 24 yo russian girl:)”

  6. I think 熱い its not correct as it means more like “hot thing” but a “day” is not actually a thing.

    I think 暑い is a more correct adjective to describe the hot weather in Japan.

  7. Although I am a Japanese student, it has not been to Mt. Fuji.
    I would like to go some day.
    You were introduced on television today.
    You are a great person.
    I’m rooting for you.
    (It is referring to the translation site.I am sorry if you cannot understand )
