The base of Mt. Fuji
The Asagiri Plateau is the highlands spreading west of Mt. Fuji at an altitude of 800 (2,625ft) to 1000m (3, 280ft). "Asagiri" means "morning fog" and because of its unique topography and climate, the plateau is often covered in fog. This plateau is one of the most eminent zones in Japan for dairy farming and stock raising. The quiet pastoral scene of many cows at pasture can be seen under the grandeur of Mt. Fuji in background. As the summer climate is regarded as cool and comfortable, many people come here to escape from the summer heat. In this plateau there are also splendid tourist facilities such as golf courses, camping sites, amusement parks and ranch experience-based facilities. I also recommend delicious and fresh dairy products made with fresh milk from the farms.
I will introduce the main tourist facilities that you can’t miss.
・Makaino Ranch http://makaino.com/

Open up your mind to child-like wonder and try hands on activities such as making butter, ice cream and sausages and trying your hands at ceramic art or glass industrial arts. Walking with a rabbit in your hands will be an unforgettable memory.
