Breathing fresh air and seing wild nature. Shosenkyo is located near Kofu city in Yamanashi prefecture. We reached there in about 1.5 hour train from Shinjuku and half an hour bus ride from Kofu station. The whole train journey is covered by Tokyo Wide Pass. (see original post on Aisar’s FB)
Taking pic with random maple tree along the way we walked the riverside of Shosenkyo
The view captured from the bus. We rode bus from the Kofu station to Shosenkyo tourism area.
Reaching Senga Falls after walking down the stairs. Light hiking with beautiful view yet not less crowd.

The second destination is grape orchards. I shared about our journey on my Instagram. Yamanashi is one of the best grape producers in Japan. We came to the farm very late so we had to make sure first before coming if they’re still available for customer visit. A famous farm, Asunaroen, gave us positive response. At 3:30 PM we went there by taxi from Yamanashi-shi station.
At Day-3, we didn’t have idea to go (and been so tired..LOL), so we ended up having slow trip to Karuizawa, which is actually famous by its shopping destination: Prince Outlet. Managed to take maternity shoots here.
