  • Notices
  • This is a private group tour in which you travel on your own along provided bus schedule and route map. There will be no tour guide. When you take this tour, we recommend taking only the travel equipment for two nights stay and send the rest of the luggage to your next destination. Since you will take public transportations, please refrain from taking overweight big luggage that you cannot carry by yourself or hamper other passengers on busses or carriages. Please note some of the facilities may not be in service depending on the situation. If you have any questions before and on the tour day, you can ask the remote concierge informed prior to the tour. (English and/or Japanese speaking staff available.)


Day 1

Day one begins with the world-famous view of Mt. Fuji from Chureito Pagoda. Later, you will board a sightseeing bus to Rest House Konami where you will enjoy a lunch featuring local cuisine. After lunch, you will board the same sightseeing bus to Itchiku Kubota Art Museum which features a collection of beautiful kimonos shown in a unique building, and surrounded by an expansive garden. Later, you will board the same bus to the Kawaguchiko Shizen-seikatsu-kan (Natural Living Center), Oishi Park (Mt. Fuji photo spot) and Oishi Pongee Traditional Craft Center (local craft shop). Finally, you will board a local bus to LOOF INN ASHIGAWA where you will enjoy a night in a large traditional Japanese home that has been updated for your comfort. You are sure to enjoy the sumptuous dinner and breakfast featuring local cuisine.

* IC cards like Suica cannot be used on Fujikyuko Line nor some local buses.

Day 2

As for day 2, you can choose the schedule from the following options.
a) Early Bird Plan: After check-out the next morning around 7:00, you will board a local bus bound for Kofu and then take the JR line, and a local bus to enjoy Daigahara, an historic section of the old Koshu Kaido (ancient road to Kyoto). In Daigahara, you will find Shichiken Sake Brewery which has been producing delicious sake for almost 270 years. Depending on the season, you may be able to have a tour of the brewery. However, you can enjoy sake tasting at any time of year. While visiting the brewery, be sure to tour the traditional home of the Kitahara family which was vacated after the Meji Emperor stayed overnight in 1880. In addition, you might enjoy having a meal at Daimin, the sake brewery’s restaurant, and having traditional Japanese sweets at Kinseiken, which is across the street from the sake brewery. Finally, you will board the train back to Kofu and switch to the Minobu line which will take you to the town of Minobu. Once you have arrived in Minobu, you will check into Kakurinbo Temple Inn and enjoy an incredible kaiseki meal and traditional Japanese breakfast.
b) Plan for weekends between April and November, everyday between July 15 and the end of August: * Instead of going to the sake brewery, you can substitute it with a visit to Suntory Whisky Distillery, which has a paid distillery tour, generous whiskey tasting, a restaurant, and a whisky museum.
c) Late Start Plan: * Instead of going to the sake brewery, you can substitute it with a visit to Shimobe-onsen where you can enjoy a 1,300-year-old hot spring that is open to day-trippers.

* Breakfast is offered without an additional charge when guests share the information of this inn via SNS.
* You will be able to choose one out of three tours depending on the season and your interests.

Day 3

Start your morning early with a visit to Kuonji Temple, and join in the morning prayers if you like. Later, enjoy a traditional Japanese breakfast at Kakurinbo. If you are really lucky, you might even see wild monkeys in the hills above Kakurinbo.

* After the tour, there is a good access to Shinkansen line via Shizuoka prefecture around noon.


LOOF INN ASHIGAWA, SAWA NO IE or SAKA NO IE (whole house rental)
* Maximum 10 persons accepted. Use the whole house as you wish.
