    Yamanashi Pref. Koufushi Atagomachi
    This scenic lookout is located in Kofu City, Yamanashi Prefecture. It offers views of Kofu Station, Kofu Castle, the Kofu Basin, and the far-off Southern Japan Alps. During the cherry blossom season, the facilities of the Kofu City waterworks bureau located behind the benches are opened to the public, allowing visitors to enjoy the cherry blossoms. Being a rest spot along the Yamasuso Inishie no Michi (a walking and cycling trail with historical ties to Takeda Shingen), the lookout is visited by many people.

Yamanashi Areas


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.
