The Disk "O"

 Hanayashiki Amusement Park - it's old,  its rickety but still absolutely fun to visit! It may not be Disneyland, but we sure had a fun morning here, one day in September last year. On the Respect-for-the-aged day, to be exact. ^^

A newer ride (than the rest, that is) and an awesome ride at Hanayashiki, I give you the Disk "O".
It spins, it goes up and down and it's a helluva ride! :)

Also Lisa of Ichigoichielove (did I get it right?) is hosting Show Me Japan Vol 1 Issue 21. Check it out!

  2. Oh that's called Disk O?
    The O like the Kopi O?
    I always call it a Giant Tumble Dryer.

    In my "era", there was no seat.
    Everybody gotta stand up properly.
    And we faced inward - when the tumble dryer started to spin,
    saliva flew in the air like sakura!
    Maybe, some people got too exited lah?

    Because it is shaped like an "O" lah... XD

    That one standing type, I think I used to take at some foreign funfair that came to town when I was in college. ;p

    Saliva flying everywhere.... like eeew! I think that's why this one facing outwards instead of inwards, right? LOL

  19. @Chris,
    And Hanayashiki felt like both - theme park and sort of a traveling carnival, rickety rides and all. XD

  20. @Ri,
