The bus pulled out of Shinjuku a little after 10am, and with clouds parting for peeks of sunlight, it looked to be a fine day for a snow romp. But although I say "romp", think of it as more of a fun play in the snow for kids, or a gentle introduction to snow for adults. With a Thomas the Tank Engine train ride, a genuinely delicious lunch and pretty lights, the whole family can enjoy this modest day out.
Japan boasts an amazing train network and major cities are exceptionally well-connected with its extensive Shinkansen (bullet train) system. While taking the Shinkansen is arguably the nicest way to travel through the country, tickets for these slick vehicles don't come cheap.
Visiting Yamanashi Prefecture lets you take a break from the hustle and bustle of Tokyo and indulge in the tranquility of nature.

Experience the beauty of Yamanashi Prefecture which is home to Mt.Fuji and the Fuji Five Lakes.
