Dec.31 (Sun) J-Hoppers Hiroshima New Year's Party 2012 !!!

It's been really busy towards the end of the year. Time flies so fast!!!

We are going to throw a New Year's Eve party on the 31st of December. We are going to have SUKIYAKI this time :):) And then we make some Toshikoshi Soba to celebrate the New Year! Toshikoshi Soba is a Japanese noodle dish which we eat on the New Year's Eve to wish for health and longevity in the year to come. And after the midnight, we will go to a shrine pray as well.

We still have some private rooms and dorm beds available for tomorrow. Book now and join us the fun New Year's party!

We hope everyone had a great 2011 and hope your 2012 will be filled with lots of laughter!

Called the Fuwa-Fuwa Kids Festival, this is a very popular (get there early), family fun event held every year in the main area of the Green Arena concert hall (behind the old Hiroshima baseball stadium). The event is held over 3 days, January 2nd~5th from 10am to 5pm each day. The busiest times are from 11am to 2pm, but it will likely be fairly busy no matter when you go.

There are Japanese Food stalls outside, special events held on the stage inside with popular anime characters who will perform shows and pose for photos with kids throughout each day. The biggest highlight of course is the huge bouncy castles, there are 26 different air-filled rides to enjoy. Prices: (save 100 yen if you buy tickets before hand.

Book the bed and let's enjoy the party together!!!

The ski season is also upon us and I will be heading out to as many of Hiroshima ski fields as the winter pregresses. Its a bit early in the season now but rest assured, there will be plenty of good day to be had in the coming months.

This is a mountain I skied many time last season. It is only a 1 hours drive from Hiroshima city and if you get up there on a week day, you can have a lot of terrain to yourself. Just the way we like it. There are sometimes cheap tickets for sale on line, so have a shop around and see whats what!

Now what ever you level, all of the ski fields around Hiroshima have all kinds of runs for all kinds of preferences. I would prefer it if they would just rip away the ropes and let us tear up all the terrain. But here in Japan you have to make safety the number one priority.
