Enjoy Japan’s Wine with Beautiful Landscapes
Yamanashi prefecture is known as the biggest producer of grape in Japan, and Katsunuma, located in the east of this prefecture, is the central area for the fruit, that was introduced by the Buddhist monk Gyoki 1,200 years ago.
Today, many vineyards are scattered around Katsunuma. Wine has been produced here since the late 19th century, and about 80 wineries have their own wines now. The amount of wine shipped from Katsunuma is about one fourth of all Japanese wine.
Katsunuma Grape Hill, a facility specializing in wine, is built on the top of a hill. In front of the facility, there are waterways and a fountain; it is a good place for children to play in the summer. In the main building, a lot of local wines and other specialties are sold, and about 200 kinds of wines are stored in an underground wine cave. You can taste them and select the one you would like to buy.
The view from the top of the hill is excellent to look down at Kofu basin and the vineyards. A restaurant here serves dishes that taste good with wine. Hot spring and a hotel are also available and you may enjoy barbecue in a garden on the hill in summer. It is a good place for your family to spend q pleasant holiday.
It is possible to go there on on a day trip from Tokyo.
Try Koshu, the wine made from local grapes that won numerous awards at international competitions, here in Katsunuma.
