Yes, Yes, Yes! Oh Yeaaaaaaaaah!

I hope that my excitement will last a little longer than just a few hours but the weather forecast for Saturday has changed again, and if it stays like that, the sun will be shining high in the sky on Saturday.

There is a 10% chance of precipitation. Partly cloudy. Mild. Temperature of 24°C. Winds NE 8km. Humidity will be 41% with a dewpoint of 10° and feels-like temperature of 24°C, according to Japan Meteorological Agency.

Nevertheless, keep your fringers crossed people!

First Expedition: You Spoke, We Listened!

You Spoke, We Listened! The alternative sightseeing spot with most votes is ‘The Ice and Wind Caves in Aokigahara – Mt. Fuji’!

And to give you a little a glimpse of what you might experience this Saturday, I added videos, images and explanations about each spot here.

Narusawa Ice Cave
Narusawa Ice Cave was formed by Lava from Mt.Fuji with average temperatures hanging in the 2.7°C (37°F) throughout the year. The cave is covered with ice 364 days, and icicles are every where you can possibly imagine. One single icicle sometimes grown up 27.4m (90ft.) long and 45cm (1.5ft.) wide. The entire cave is 137m (450ft.). Entrance fee: ¥200 p/person.

Fukagu Wind Cave
Fugaku Wind Cave was also formed by Lava from Mt.Fuji with average temperatures hanging in the 2.7°C (37°F) all year round, making this cave propitious for cold storage of silkworms. It is about 182m (600ft.) length and 8.2m (27ft.) height.
Somehow, there is no echo sound inside it and the walls are all covered with ice. Entrance fee: ¥200 p/person.
