    Yamanashi Pref. Minamitsurugunfujikawaguchikomachi Asagawa 1163-1
    This ropeway can be ridden from the shores of Lake Kawaguchi. Mt. Tenjo is said to be where the Japanese folktale, “Kachi-kachi Yama,” took place, hence the name of the ropeway. The ropeway takes three minutes to reach the top, 1,075 meters above sea level. From there, visitors can get a panoramic view of Lake Kawaguchi and Mt. Fuji and, on clear days, even the Japanese Southern Alps. You can descend via a hiking trail, passing by sights such as Tenjoyama Gokoku-jinja Shrine and a stone monument commemorating famed author Osamu Dazai.

    Yamanashi Pref. Minamitsurugunfujikawaguchikomachi Saiko (Negishi) 2710
    In 2006 the village of thatched roofed buildings which formerly existed on the shores of the Lake Saiko, the Nemba area, were reconstructed as “Iyashi no Sato”. The buildings which number approximately 20 have been turned into restaurants where you can taste different types of local cuisine, areas for handmade interactive workshops and shops selling local products. Also because Mt. Fuji can be clearly seen, many people take pictures together with the thatched roofed buildings.

    Went as part of a 2n stay in the area Borderline nominal entrance fee (350yen each) for the 20 huts but mostly contrived version of ‘traditional crafts’ with little more than 60 seconds spent in...

    山梨の紅葉を見に行くツアーに参加した際、ブドウ狩で立ち寄りました。紅葉シーズン(11月上旬)なのにまだブドウ狩りができるのかと半信半疑でしたが、畑に案内されるとまだまだブドウがたくさん。ただ、私の好きな品種ではなく、味もすっぱかったり、大味だったり・・・ブドウ狩りがメインの旅ではなかったので仕方ないのですが、やはりフルーツは時期が大事ですね。

Yamanashi prefecture is the proud home of one of Japan's most celebrated icons: Mount Fuji. Although the mountain straddles both Yamanashi and Shizuoka, the most breathtaking views of Fuji-san can be seen from the Fuji Five Lakes north of the mountain in Yamanashi prefecture. The plethora of outdoor activities in and around the lakes all have the benefit of the country's highest mountain as their backdrop, and we can assure you that it is an unforgettable sight.
