Description of this tour
Escape from busy Tokyo just one and a half hours away by train. Shosenkyo Gorge is famous for steep cliffs along the river with odd shaped huge rocks. Enjoy walking the trail, get a power from Sengataki Waterfall. We'll visit a cozy cafe where you can enjoy trying a kimono on and experience Matcha green tea making. After, we'll go to local public hot spring in town.
Welcome to Yamanashi! I’ve lived in more than ten places in Japan and have enjoyed different cultures of each region. Among them, Yamanashi is “No.1” with a lot of attractions changing with the seasons.
Despite being only one and a half hours from Tokyo, we enjoy a rich life close to nature.
Do you like wine? Yes, we have excellent wineries with the longest history of Japanese domestic wine.
Do you like fruits? Yes, we can enjoy picking peaches, grapes, persimmons etc. depending on the seasons.
Are you interested in taking photos at beautiful temples and shrines? Yes, we have many historic temples and shrines with a quiet sacred atmosphere.
Of course, Yamanashi’s No.1 attraction is Mt.Fuji, but if you’d like to escape from the crowded city and famous jammed tourist spots, let me show you around hidden spots at your pace to release your stress!!
