First Summer in Japan


My first and probably only summer vacation in Japan was not quite what I expected. Back in New Zealand, summer holidays were generally only 2 weeks long. I am not used to a vacation more than a month long. Since Seiritsu’s was such a long break I quickly went through my list of things to do. Also, because I am living in Saitama, it takes about an hour to get to Tokyo and the train pass for school had finished so I had difficulty making it to the main part of the city.

One place that I went in the holidays was Tobu Dobutsu Koen with Ella. It’s a zoo with an amusement park. It was not so big so there were not very many people (unlike Disney land) so we didn’t have to wait for so long. They had two big roller coasters and two small roller coasters. The roller coasters were the best part and we probably rode them about 25 times.
