If you are living in Tokyo or just visiting, and you want to explore the nature of the countryside of Japan but you don’t have the time for long trip. Then you should to consider Yamanashi prefecture as a destination. One of my best places to visit is the Lake Kawaguchiko.Kawaguchiko is located at the base of Mount Fuji. Great landscape, hot spring and clean air to relax during the weekend.If you are visiting Mt.Fuji for the first time, you would love this area. You can reach this area by the express train from shinjuku station toward Kawaguchiku station.
