Things to Do in Chubu
Located near the base of Mt Fuji sits Fuji-Q Highland, one of Japan’s most popular amusement parks. Aside from its scenic setting, Fuji-Q Highland is best known for its record-setting roller coasters — four in total. Considered one of the most extreme roller coasters in the world, Dodonpa holds the record for fastest acceleration, while Takabisha features a drop angle of 121 degrees, making it the steepest steel roller coaster on the planet. Eejanaika, a 4D roller coaster with rotating seats, has more inversions than any other coaster, and the park’s first coaster, Fujiyama, was the tallest and fastest when it debuted in 1996.
Thrills can be found off the track as well; the park is home to one of the world’s largest haunted attractions, the appropriately named Super Scary Labyrinth of Fear, which takes guests on a spine-tingling trip through a haunted hospital. Carnival rides, anime-inspired attractions and kid-friendly Thomas Land round out the park’s offerings.
Since December 1990 this popular Japanese ski resort has been attracting adventurous travelers and their families thanks to well kept slopes, a scenic gondola and a variety of other incredible winter wonderland facilities.
In addition to multiple slopes that are ideal for skiers and snowboarders of all levels, Gala Yuzawa is home to a quiet café that’s perfect for warming up, an ice cream parlor, a handful of restaurants, a childcare room, and even a spa and fitness pool that’s ideal for travelers who want to unwind after a day spent powering through the powder. It’s the perfect place for families to escape the city and check out one of Japan’s popular outdoor destinations!
