Have you ever taken in a breathtaking view of Mt. Fuji from 79 meters in the air before rocketing towards the ground at some 130 km/h? No? Then you have apparently not paid a visit to one of Japan's most popular amusement parks. From classic coaster Fujiyama to mind-blowing 4th Dimension contraption Eejanaika, Fuji-Q Highland is home to a number of record-breaking thrill rides, and its newest addition, Takabisha, is the current Guinness champ for steepest steel roller coaster. With a large number of other types of attractions from kid-friendly Thomas Land to a terrifying haunted hospital, Fuji-Q Highland is indeed fun for the whole family. On top of all this, the park is located very close to the base of Mt. Fuji, making visits to Fuji-Q a decidedly unique experience.
Now, Fuji-Q Highland's official hotel Highland Resort Hotel & Spa is currently offering a special rate to JAPANiCAN.com customers, so continue below to learn more about the hotel, and don't miss your chance to take advantage of this great deal!
