Yamanashi is a prefecture that is home to the likes of both Mt. Fuji and Kawaguchiko. As such, it has a fair bit of recognition overseas. That said, other than these two popular destinations, many of Yamanashi’s other allures are all but missing from the digital map. Luckily though, the local tourism organization is aware of the issue and is working hard to remedy the situation. Quite frankly, their proactive approach and openness to change is a real breath of fresh air in what can often be a stagnant and stuck up industry. Presently, Yamanashi is putting together a number of exciting tours that solve for its glaring awareness and connectivity issues. To be frank, I couldn’t be more impressed with what they are trying to do.
