Here we showcase a two day, one night trip that takes you on a fun and exciting journey through the Mt. Fuji area, located about two hours from Shinjuku, Tokyo. You’ll get up close and personal with all that Mt. Fuji and the ninja culture have to offer!
The “Yoshida Fire Festival” is a joint festival held by both Kitaguchi Hongu Fuji Sengen Shrine and Suwa Shrine, which is located on the former’s grounds. This festival is counted as both one of Japan’s 3 most unique festivals and one of Japan’s 10 great fire festivals.
Multiple fireworks festivals are held in August every year at the Fuji Five Lakes. Among those, the top-ranking festival is the Lake Yamanaka Fireworks Festival. The festival is held for consolation of spirits, prayer that no disasters occur, and appreciating the blessings of the lakes.
In Yamanashi Prefecture, there are 7 branches of a well-known sweets shop called "Say Gets".
At Say Gets, the sweets are not mass-produced. Instead, everything is made by hand with specially selected ingredients.
I'd like to tell you about what I ate there, a sweet called "Koshu Ichiryo Monaka".
The “Fuji Subaru Line 5th Station” in Yamanashi Prefecture is the trailhead that leads to the Yoshida route up Mt. Fuji. “Fujikyu Unjokaku” is a facility with restaurants and shopping, located near the 5th station at an altitude of 2,305 meters.
This time, we will be introducing a capsule hotel located in that very facility, “Lodge Fujiyama.”

The “Kawaguchiko Herb Festival” is a major annual event for Lake Kawaguchi in the early summer. It begins in mid-June, and it lasts for roughly a month.
Around 100,000 stalks of lavender grow along the lakeside area, with the main areas for viewing the flowers being Yagizaki Park and Oishi Park.
Enjoy the rejuvenating combination of a view of Mt. Fuji and the scent of lavender.
Many of the travelers visiting Japan in the springtime are seeking out the beautiful pink blooms of cherry blossoms. This time we will be introducing shiba-sakura, or moss phlox, which spreads a carpet of pink blooms on the ground rather than on trees. The “2019 Fuji Shiba-sakura Festival,” where you’ll be able to fully enjoy these beautiful flowers, will be taking place from April 13th (Saturday) until May 26th (Sunday), 2019, at Fuji Motosuko Resort (Minamitsuru-gun, Yamanashi Prefecture).
