from Tokyo by Shinkansen.
It was the first time being here, and I was utterly amazed by the beautiful
scenery and amazing food.
If you want to get relaxed, to see around Mt. Fuji, or are interested in
Japanese onsen(hot spring), this area is full of traditional style hotels
and I'm sure you will be fascinated by the profound beauty of nature.
above: Hotel Asaba
The first photo: the view from the room
you can see one of the most historic Noh stages in its garden
The longest suspended bridge in Japan
Unfortunately cloudy this time, but when it's sunny
you can get the superb view of Mt. Fuji (World Heritage) like this.
