Lake Kawaguchi, Hydrangeas, Onsen and Icecream

Konbanwa~!

For today's photospam entry, I will be sharing with you photos from our impromptu weekend at Kawaguchiko. This was around 3-4 weeks ago, if my memory is correct, hehe!

We left Saitama early and picked up items for work in Shizuoka area. Since we were already there, my brother decided to treat us all with a short vacation (or staycation? haha)~

We spent 2 hours in the afternoon at Gotemba Premium Outlets (which we also blogged at OurKawaii.Tokyo) and stayed at a hotel with onsen / hotspring for overnight. The next day, we went around Lake Kawaguchi (didn't expect to see hydrangeas / ajisai!) and ate lots of icecream, haha. We also rode a bus and went to a random place (such a bad blogger for forgetting names of places lololol) near the base of Mt. Fuji. ^^

Hopefully in this lifetime, I would be able to climb Mt. Fuji too like those professional hikers that we met, hehe. Dreaming big as always, hahaha.

Before starting our roadtrip, we bought some snacks to munch while inside the car.

Black Pepper-flavored Pringles = THE BEST!
