The Yamanashi Grapevine 2018

The Yamanashi Grapevine 2018 was published!

Written and edited by Coordinators for International Relations from the JET Programme, The Yamanashi Grapevine is a publication supported by The Osano Memorial Foundation aimed at promoting Yamanashi Prefecture to an English speaking audience worldwide.

This year, on top of receiving a new design for the magazine, we have also revisited some of Yamanashi’s old favorites– from peaches, grapes, and wine to, of course, Mt. Fuji and the Shingen-Ko Festival. In order to show the different ways of enjoying each of these, we have set out to learn about the cultivation of fruits and wine making, ridden one of the most unique trains in the country, visited accommodations with breathtaking views and heartwarming services, and participated in the famous and historic Shingen-Ko Festival.

At the same time, we aimed to show important aspects of Yamanashi that are still unknown to the general public such as an amazing cherry production in Minami Alps City to a wilderness adventure course in Kosuge Village.
