KCP Fall 2015 Students Visit Yamanashi

Yamanashi Prefecture (山梨県) in Chūbu region, Honshu, Japan, is a popular destination for its beautiful scenery. Yamanashi is easily accessible by road and rail. Some of the more popular places to visit in the area are Mount Fuji, the highland resort of Kiyosato, Kōfu city, Senga Falls, the Fuji Five Lakes, the Kuonji Temple in Minobu, and the Koshu wineries.

Yamanashi Prefecture’s natural topography is ideal for hiking, mountain climbing, and simply enjoying Japan’s unique scenery. Mount Fuji, the highest mountain in Japan, and Mount Kita, the second highest, are both located in Yamanashi. There are several onsens (natural hot springs) in the area as well as the Chichibu-Tama-Kai National Park and parts of the Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park and the Minami Alps National Park.
