The northern entrance to Mount Fuji, Japan’s highest mountain, and also home to the second highest, Mount Kita, Yamanashi Prefecture (山梨県, Yamanashi-ken) is a mountain climber’s delight, while also offering a lot more.

Fuji-Q Highland, Japan’s most popular original theme park, contains some of the world’s most challenging roller coasters and perhaps the scariest haunted house ever. Visit Kofu Castle and Yamanashi’s many historic temples, including Kuon-ji and Erin-ji, while outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy the pristine Fuji Five Lakes and Shosen-kyo.

Many onsens can be found in the Fuefuki area, while the prefecture is also renowned for its fruit, especially peaches and grapes, and houtou, a dish similar to udon. The Suntory Whisky Museum is located in Yamanashi as well!
