Just before New-Year we went to Nagashima Spa Land (ナガシマスパーランド) Mie-ken, Japan. Its about a 1 ½ hour drive from Kyoto on the highway and the weather, although a little chilly, was sunny and dry. It is a fairly big amusement park along the pacific ocean in the Ise bay. I have been there before in the summer and enjoyed the onsen that is attached to the park. They also have a large open air swimming pool with some awesome water slides. You can have a lot of fun there and when its all done you can visit the nearby “outlet” shopping mall (walking distance). The video gives you a bit of an idea what you can expect if you go there, and if you have been there before, you can relive the trills!
