early in the morning after we took breakfast at the hotel, we were heading to kawaguchi lake.
but before that, we strolling around the hotel’s garden one more time. aaaaaaand it was the most beautiful garden i’ve ever seen–so far! all those ponds and huge koi fishes, i even spotted a living crane! and not so small as seen in sg, but about half metre high? ╰(*´︶`*)╯
and off we go! ヽ(*⌒▽⌒*)ﾉ
it was raining with 4°C, when we had to stop somewhere to had our late lunch in a local restaurant we first spotted. the noodle (was it soba?) portion was huge! it mean for someone who hasn’t been eaten for 8 days in a row–i supposed! we could share one big bowl for the three of us–we wished we knew earlier! then i took pic of the giant daruma doll before we left the restaurant, who stole my attention all the time while i tried so hard to stuffed my face with the soba. ( ´ ▽ ` )
accross the street, we changed bus and continued our journey to the lake. when we finally arrived at the hotel, it was already sunset and hailing didn’t stop. the sky was all grey. poor friend she tried so hard to convince me that the fuji-san was supposed to be seen from our hotel’s window. but na-da. so we had no choice but took selfies around the hotel lobby with christmas decoration. yay!! ☆ ～(‘▽^人)
mom didn’t allow me to have dolls since a was a kid. so i always have this awkward situation around dolls–feel like they’re going to kill me with their black-glass eyes. i mean, YOU ALL KNOW CHUCKY RIGHT!! (╬ Ò﹏Ó)
because there’s no restaurant in the hotel, it was freezing cold and hailing outside we couldn’t walk to the restaurant, the nearest seven/11 was almost a kilometre from the hotel, the only choice for dinner was ordered pizza delivery. so we did. we went to japan and had pizza for dinner, no choice. ヾ( ￣O￣)ツ
too bad the weather didn’t allow us to stroll around the lake and enjoy the fuji-san. we had no choice but stayed in the hotel and soaked ourselves in the onsen before we went to bed.
anyway, we probably would be too tired after the long journey. so think the positive side, we had more rest tonight and hopefully tomorrow we can see fuji-san from our hotel’s window before we leave the lake. (´｡• ᵕ •｡`)
