What you'll do

You’ll take a train ride with your host to Kawaguchi-ko, a resort town designed for relaxation, so why not start off at a local onsen hot spring, where you can soak away all your stress in the healing waters? Your host will lead you to popular attractions like the Kubota Art Museum, where you can discover the ancient art of fabric dying, or you could pick a precious, one-of-a-kind souvenir from the Yamanashi Gem Museum. You’ll also experience off-beat secret spots like the Fuji Omoro Sengen shrine, which has been destroyed by volcanic eruptions several times, or Tanuki Tea Shop atop Mount Tenjo, where you’ll see Mount Fuji from an entirely different perspective.

Where you’ll go

Just a few hours west of Tokyo lie some of Japan’s most famous and scenic lakes, including one very special destination. Kawaguchi-ko is a magical resort where luxurious hot springs (or onsen), fascinating museums and picturesque cherry blossoms grab the imagination, all in full view of a Japanese icon - Mount Fuji. Witness the Maple Corridor, where autumn outshines spring, or enjoy a dramatic view from the Mount Fuji Panoramic Ropeway, which peaks at 1075m above sea level. Hungry? Your host will show you where to find the houtou noodle restaurant with the best view. That’s why you’re here, after all...

    • Hop on a train arranged by your host and head for the hills - literally - of Kawaguchi-ko.
    • Embrace the tranquility of the Fuji Five Lakes, and take in spectacular views of the mountain itself.
    • Unwind at a local hot spring, or onsen, where the locals go for some real rest and relaxation.
    • Watch art in motion at Itchiku Kubota Art, where ancient fabric dying still takes place.
    • Sip a steamy brew at a traditional tea house, visit a local museum, or opt for an authentic sake tasting.
