Overview

A farm named "Wappa farm" is in a small town called Nishikatsura, and run by a couple named Mr.&Mrs.Matsumoto.
They grow more than 40 kinds of seasonal vegetables throughout the year without using any agrichemicals or chemical fertilizers.
Would you like to have a special experience to feel the blessings of nature directly which you may not attend to in your daily life?

What to Expect

Do you have any opportunities to see vegetables growing in a field?
We only see vegetables at supermarkets or on our dining table, not in a natural way in there days .
If you come and join this activity, you can see how it is growing by getting clean snow meltwater from Mt.Fuji and experience how delicious and powerful the fresh vegetables are. Also it will be a chance to think about the value of food and farmers' effort.

“ Lookout spots, Onsen and Trekking to see Fuji-San ”

Highlight of my entire trip! Booked Aya and a private driver to visit some of the best lookout spots to see Mt. Fuji with our own private onsen and some trekking to 3 different lookouts to see more of Mt. Fuji. I could not find any faults on our day together with Aya and our private driver. She is a real sweetheart who is also really down to earth. Not only that she is extremely knowledgeable in her field and expertise. I will definitely be looking forward to booking Aya again and making strong recommendations to my friends and family. She is extremely easy to communicate with prior and on the day. She is very accommodating to our needs and her hospitality was exceptional! extremely easy to get along with. I hope to meet you again along with my friends in the future. Than... read more

AYA:

Hi Andrew Thank you very much for the great review! You were so lucky to have such a fine day to see Mt.Fuji with autumn leaves from different aspects. I would like to see lots of photos taken by you using the special cameras. The things I won’t forget especially are ice-creams(blueberry and WASABI), your laughing from the private hot spring and the chatting during trekking. You all three were very friendly and kind that made me relaxed and enjoy the tour together. Time flies when we are having a good time. If you have next opportunity to come to visit Japan, I would like to meet you and support your trip again. I hope you three will get along well forever. Thank you!! Aya

A memorable day with a memorable person, when the planets line up we will meet Aya again sometime in the future. Ken and Sandi Melbourne Australia

AYA:

Ken and Sandi Thank you so much for giving me a great review. I could spend a wonderful time with you in the town of wineries, Katsunuma. We were able to visit 4 wineries you were interested in and enjoyed tasting. I was surprised with lots of knowledge about wines you have and also it was a good experience to hear about wines in Australia. I could feel you very close from the beginning and enjoyed talking with you about wines, our families, our countries and many other topics. We laughed a lot! I was such a lucky tour guide to have you as the customers. Thank you very much again for joining my tour. Hope we you’ll come back again to Japan with your whole family someday!
