Wednesday was probably the busiest day of all. First thing we did was to have udon in the morning in Kofu. Freshly-made, in front of our eyes. An experience. I had prawn tempura, too. Very fresh! It was my first time with udon. Udon is healthy food. I like healthy food. And it’s halal (apart from sushi)!
After having udon, we went to the Fruits Koen (fruit park) in Yamanashi, up this hill where we can view the city of Kofu and Mount Fuji. Initially we planned to go for a picnic with Oiyour near Kawaguchi-ko (Kawaguchi Lake), but reckoned time was running out- too much time spent getting ready and shopping at this one Korean store (selling discounted LeSportsac and it was the first time for me to encounter an area dedicated to everything X-rated hahaha). It was almost summer, so the place and its surrounding was filled with grape and peach farms. There were flowers, but I guess they’re not as pretty as those in spring.Anyway, we were disappointed at first because we were unable to see Fuji, but camwhored here and there anyway. Then we spotted a playground, one I’ve seen in Reza and Oiyour’s photos. Wet playground!! So we spent time climbing and playing mini water raft. Afterward, we contemplated between going straight to Yamanashi Daigaku or going to the onsen nearby, and right after that, Fuji-san became apparent, but only slightly. We decided to wait throughout the heat just to get a better view. It was worth it. Aishah sempat curi momo just minutes before we left. Then to Yamanashi Daigaku, Reza’s university, to get a taste of a Nihon university. We went to see several buildings in and surrounding it including the university’s “co-op”, study area and the engineering building. Best gile the seats and the tables! There weren’t many students, as most of them had left by then. At night after dinner we were brought to this amusement resort. First thing Reza did was buy us tokens and taught the girls how to play “kuda”. Basically mini horses will race and what were supposed to do was bet which horse would reach the finish line first. Almost like berjudi but without the prizes. I then tried my luck playing something else. Betting over Blackjack and Ape machines. Tried the basketball machine, too. Until we were told that the area will be closed soon. Then we tried Purikura (the photo booths). Doodling it with the machine was so much fun! We had eight different pictures of us altogether. And then went bowling upstairs. The bowling place was filled with sofas (really nice looking) and the whole place just looked a lot luxurious than what we’ve here in Malaysia. Three games. I think we went home at 1am or 2am plus.
