Fuji at Warp Speed

With a mid-afternoon flight, we had to make a slap-dash trip up to Fuji. Our plan: drag ourselves out of our luxurious ryokan at 5:00 AM to hop aboard an express bus bound for Hakone. Surprisingly, we pulled it off without a hitch. I'm sure we could've spent several days in Fuji/Yoshida, which is famous for hot springs, a The Little Prince museum, pirate boats, and a surely ridiculous theme park. But we were in such a happy-go-lucky Japan haze that none of us minded the quick trip at all. Especially considering we brought snacks from the Tokyo Food Show to share on the bus. We bid farewell to our dear traveling partner, Ben, and hope that he comes back to Asia real soon.
