I was recently invited to Highland Resort Hotel & Spa, which just so happens to be the official hotel (and spa) of Fuji-Q Highland (Japan's premier amusement park that is not completely cartoon and/or movie themed). After scrutinizing my boss to see if she was jerking my chain when she asked me if I wanted to visit Fuji-Q on business, I feigned professionalism and calmly accepted the assignment (while inner me jumped up and down and giggled like a 5 year old). And thus, I was off to Fuji-Q on a somewhat sunny Saturday at the end of April.
