I would love to do this adventure again, maybe in the spring or autumn.


Shosenkyo (Yamanashi Prefecture, Japan)



Today’s photo is of a non-famous angle of famous Kakuenbo in Shosenkyo. The famous vantage point is this one.

Arakawa in Shosenkyo

The Arakawa in Yamanashi is not the same as the Arakawa in Tokyo. This one runs through Shosenkyo and then joins up with the Fujikawa (富士川).

Should you ever stumble upon the above sign, be sure to look around as you will find yourself in one of the most spectacular natural scenes in the world.

Strangely, I was the only person there. Given the heat (humid and over 100 degrees), I wasn’t too surprised. I’m guessing this location is rather crowded on a weekend in spring or fall.

There is a picnic table next to the Arakawa River at this spot. Bring a bento, and enjoy the view.
