Tokyo AreaPage: 1/19
Only 90 minutes from Tokyo. In Shizuoka prefecture, there is a small river called Kakitagawa at the bottom of Mt. Fuji. It’s a short river only 1.2 km long total, but with its water so transparent, you can clearly see the bottom of the river.
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.”
A Round Trip to Saitama Prefecture’s Gyoda for a Visit to Ravishing Ancient Lotuses, Tumulus Clusters and the Historic Castle in One Day!Read Later
It is only a 1-hour train ride from Tokyo’s Ueno Station on the Takasaki Line (JR East) to Saitama Prefecture’s Gyoda, where ancient lotuses are in full bloom! Besides, there are Saitama Kofun (tumuli, ancient burial mounds) Park and Oshi Castle, which are rarely seen in other cities in Japan. Here is an account of my one-day round trip to Gyoda and I hope it could be helpful to you.
Cabin House YADO is located in Fuji-no-Miya, a city in Shizuoka Prefecture.
Cheaper than a business hotel, it's much more comfortable than a typical capsule hotel.
Here, I'd like to introduce this hotel, recommended as a base for business or leisure activities in the areas around Mount Fuji!

Tokyo Koenji Awa OdoriRead Later
The Tokyo Koenji Awa Odori will be celebrating its 61st holding in 2017.
Around 10,000 participants on 150 teams from across the country participate, and around 1 million people fill the area to spectate the events.
Japan’s rainy season may be coming up, but there’s still plenty to look forward to! While June is generally wet and muggy, it’s also when varying colours of hydrangea begin to bloom beautifully all over Kanto. If you’re looking to see the flowers in all their glory, we suggest heading to the history-rich city of Kamakura, which was once the capital of Japan.
Hondo-ji Temple, in Chiba Prefecture’s Matsudo City, is a temple of the Nichiren sect of Buddhism that was built in 1277.
Every year in June, around 50,000 hydrangeas of over 10 varieties beautifully bloom. Because of this, the temple is also known as the “hydrangea temple.”
It is easily accessible, with Kita-Kogane Station, the station nearest to the temple, being only 50 minutes by train from Tokyo Station.
However, it truly is a well-kept-secret place, and you can be sure that you’ll be able to leisurely enjoy the flowers without worrying about crowds!
