Mokujiki no Sato Bishokan Museum木喰の里微笑館
"This history museum collects and exhibits artifacts including Buddhist images carved by the Edo period monk Mokujiki as well as ancient documents. Mokujiki traveled all over Japan and left behind more than 1,000 Buddhist statues across the country during his lifetime. His works have a creative style that does not conform to traditional styles of Buddhist carving. Called ""mishobutsu"" (smiling Buddhas) for the faint smiles on the mouths of many of their mouths, his Buddhist images were widely worshipped by the common folk. The nearby birthplace of Mokujiki is open to the public as Mokujiki Memorial Hall."

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.
