YAMANASHI PREFECTURE

To the west of Tokyo, Yamanashi encompasses the northern part of Mount Fuji, where hundreds of thousands of visitors climb to the summit every year. In the Fuji Five Lakes area, resort towns surround the lakes long-ago formed by the mountain’s volcanic eruptions. The region is renowned for climbing, fishing and skiing, and a more recent claim to fame is as a wine-producing region. Koshu grapes have produced international award-winning wines, which can be sampled at several different wineries and shops. The whisky producing region of Hokuto is also gathering attention for its excellent produce.
