More about Fifth Hotel
There are 3 peak seasons in Japan when it is especially difficult to find accomodation:
1. The end of the year/New Year`s
2. Golden Week (usually from April 29-May 5th)
3. Obon (from the week centering on Aug 15th)
These 3 times of the year are when most employees/workers have their vacation holidays. This is the most expensive time to travel in Japan. And the most crowded. Trains will be packed & accomodations will be filled.
If you will be in Japan during any of these times, BE SURE to book your accomodation weeks & weeks in advance. Or else you might have to spend your nights with the homeless...uh-oh...
Canal City is described as a 'city within a city'. The complex is a shopping and entertainment complex, and includes shops, cafes, restaurants, cinemas, two hotels and a canal, which runs through the centre and occasionally has a good 'dancing fountain' show.
The 5th floor houses Ramen Stadium, well worth visiting to try the local noodle speciality
if you want to sample the local speciality noodles but dont fancy trying your luck at the street stalls, head for Canal City. Ramen Stadium takes up the entire 5th floor and is full of ramen restaurants.
Each restuarant has a vending maching outside. Pick what you want from the pictures on the buttons (not always easy) and put the paymen in the machine. For each item you pick, the machine prints out a voucher, hand this in at the counter and within minutes you get a big bowl of noodles.
Watch out though, it can become messy!! I went for noodles in a spicy soup with sweetcorn, beansprouts and pork.
Lovely and very filling.
Very good value for 850 Yen (less than £5)
Also get unlinmited free iced water
Raja Sehari! - Malaysia
They deserve the best treatment for that day, because local call it “Raja Sehari”. Meaning, he is the “King for the Day”, one day only!!!!!
Correction, they entitle up to four times "Raja Sehari" (may be more!!) But at any one time 4 legal wives. The queen only "sehari".
Please do not mistaken that every Malaysian will have the privilege of having 4 wives at any one time. Only those who're adopting Islam will be able to exercise this right. For me, I will be entitled for ONE ONLY. So, please don't feel insecure that you are the 3rd, 4th or 5th girl friends of mine if you somehow attracted to me eh!
All over Japan you will see this koinobori (carp streamers) flying in the wind.
Flying carp streamers are traditional in Japan.
5th of May is called "Children's Day" in Japan. On this day parents who have a newborn baby boy celebrate their son's birth by flagging carp streamers. You can see carp streamers flying in the sky here and there especially in the countryside of Japan
The carp is thought to be a symbol of success and people in Japan began to fly carp streamers to wish their child future success.

Anyone up for trekking up Mount Fuji in Japan next week?
Hi, i plan to trek up Mount Fuji overnight and to reach the summit for about 4:30am to catch the sunrise on either wednesday or thursday night. Does anyone fancy joining me?
I plan to start from Kawaguchiko 5th Station (Yamanashi Prefecture) in the evening!
Here's some basic info.
Altitude: about 2300 meters
Ascent: 5-7 hours
Descent: 3-5 hours
This is the most popular base for the climb to the summit, and the most easily accessible 5th Station from the Fuji Five Lake region and central Tokyo.
The Yoshidaguchi Trail leads from the Kawaguchiko 5th Station to the summit. Lots of mountain huts line the trail around the 7th and 8th stations, and there are separate trails for the ascent and descent. The sunrise takes place on this side of the mountain.
I only have a week left in Japan after a 3 month trip around asia, before i head back to the uk and think this is the best way to finish off the trip, if your up for joining me, please drop me an email? firstname.lastname@example.org
Travel advice for father with teenage daughter
I have a 15 year old daughter that lives in Misawa with her mother. I am traveling to see here on the 5th of November and would like some advice on things to do while in Japan.
I will be in Japan for 7 days. While there, I would like to find things to do that my teenager will enjoy.
I would like to spend less than $1000 on accomodation and travel while there if possible.
Mt. Fuji, climbing out of season
Just wondering if anyone has checked out Mt. Fuji in the offseason like around late feb. early march and/or attempted any climbs?
RE: Mt. Fuji, climbing out of season
The best time to climb is during the july 1 - august 31 open season.
.you can only reach the 5th or new 5th stages, during the off season by car or bus....but no climbing ..sorry..
RE: RE: Mt. Fuji, climbing out of season
if you still feel you got to climb....check this out..
RE: Mt. Fuji, climbing out of season
I would definatly recommend doing it in the off-season just to avoid the crowd! All of the lodges are likely to be closed though.
I climbed the day before the season started, and went all the way in one 12-hour haul. Although we blended in with the crowds in the middle, by the time we got to the top we were alone, as everyone else was staying in the lodges.
