Fuji and its surroundings including Fuji Five Lakes, Aokigahara Jyukai (sea of trees), various caves (lava, wind, ice and bat caves) and the world-famous wine country where you can visit more than 80 wineries to choose from and taste award-winning wines including the white wines made from Kosyu grapes unique to Yamanashi prefecture.
