If you ever have a chance to visit Yamanashi, I would recommend that you do. The area has a lot to see, things to do, and foods to eat. Also, if wine is your thing, I’m told that it is one of the things Yamanashi is known for. As I am unable to drink, I will never know for sure, so I am relying on the opinions of others.

I went to Yamanashi yesterday with some friends. One of the places we visited was a large garden where you could see Mount Fuji.

We had gone there in search of lunch, but there was only a souvenir shop, an ice cream stand, and an all you can eat tomato restaurant. While I do love Yamanashi tomatos (they are some of the best in the country), a lunch they do not make.

We ended up driving a bit more before we found a good place to stop and eat. It was a rest stop at the floot of the mountain we visited. We all got different things and ate together outside. I had inarizushi (seasoned rice stuffed into fried tofu), while my friends got a dora burger (a fish and beef patty in a dorayaki bun), some assorted rice balls, and a few pastries. We washed it all down with tea and fresh squeezed fruit juice.

All in all, it was a really great trip.
