Fuji-Q Highland Ice Skating

Skate under open skies and the magnificent Mount Fuji

By Eriko Fukui    - 1 min read

Fuji-Q Highland is an amusement park in Fujiyoshida. Nestled in Yamanashi prefecture, this park makes the most of its magical views of Mount Fuji. I didn't realize I was standing in front of it when I first arrived as it is much bigger than I thought.

From the start of Winter until the first Sunday of April you can skate in the open air all day long. You can rent ice skating shoes at a cost of Y1000.

Fuji-Q Highland​ is also known for its scary rides. There are more than 10 kinds of ride​s in this​ amusement park to get your heart racing. Some of these rides include Takabisha - a brand new roller coaster with "the steepest drop in the world at 121°"; Eejanaika - the roller coaster with the most number of spins in the world, and Fujiyama - the over-the-top king of roller-coasters.
