Kids Love Land at Fujiten Snow Resort

I have been wanting to write about our initial trip to Fujiten Snow Resort for over a year now, but, like all things, time just got away from me.  We recently celebrated Connor's birthday at Fujiten, so I thought that this would be the perfect time to revisit.

Last year when we went to Fujiten, there was so much snow on the ground.  Instead of walking to the entrance booth and paying the fee to enter Kids Love Land, we sledded right at the base of the mountain.  There were quite a few families who were doing the same thing and the kids were so little, so we didn't see the need to enter what we imagined to be a huge snow park.

Seriously, I'm not sure why we didn't think about taking the few extra steps to enter Kids Love Land.


Getting ready to go sled down the hill.


They looked like they had a pretty good time to me!  Well, at least Tristan.  Connor likes to close his eyes when he's sledding.


It became cloudy that afternoon, but it's a great day when you're sledding with Mt. Fuji in the background.




This year we decided to celebrate Connor's special day with a Slip-Sledding 2nd Birthday Party.  With all of our guests, this definitely meant that we were going to enter the park this time around.


Fujiten Snow Resort has some colorful guests.


In hindsight, we had a great time last year whether or not we entered the park (plus, Connor was too small to sled down by himself on the longer slopes), but Kids Love Land is pretty cool!  Not only is there this small playground, but there are tubing and ski slopes for the kids as well as a trampoline.


My kids could pretty much be found at the small, snow hill if they weren't sledding.


These kids created their own snow slide.  Geniuses!


I think this is one of my favorite parts about this place.  The conveyor belt that takes you to the top of the hill.  Oh, you can walk along the other side of the slope?  But why waste all that energy?  Hop on and enjoy the scenery.

I've never been to a sledding park before, but I think it's pretty cool that they have animal canopies at the beginning of the course.


Connor had a lot of fun watching people sled down.  He must've just seen someone eat it.


The happiness on the kids' faces makes the trip here all worth it.


Connor loves it when his dad tosses him in the air.


Goodbye, Mt. Fuji!  It looks like a small ski park, but I think it would be a great place for beginners to practice.  Plus, it's not too far from Tokyo if you're just making a day trip.

Hi,
I am planning to bring my kids to Fujiten on1st Dec 2012. May I know how do we get to Fujiten from Shinjuku? Which is the fastest way? I may buy the JR pass so will I get to use this for our trip to Fujiten? Have been to their website but it's all in Japanese and I don't understand what they are writing. I am from Singapore.
Thank you for helping!

Audrey, we usually drive because we live in Japan, and it will take 90 minutes from Shinjuku according to Fujiten's site. You can take the train, and your stop would be Kawaguchiko. From Kawaguchiko station, take a taxi to the resort. For more information on times and routes from Shinjuku to Kawaguchiko, visit http://www.hyperdia.com. It's a lifesaver. Also, I use Google's translation app to translate foreign websites. Hopefully this works: http://translate.google.com/translate?sl=auto&tl=en&js=n&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&layout=2&eotf=1&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.fujiten.net%2Fpc%2Finformation_access.shtml

Hope this helps, and feel free to ask me any more questions!
