Camping at Nishizawa Ravine
For the three day weekend Suzuna and I took a camping trip to Yamanashi to go hiking up NishisawaKeikoku. I rented a car from the base and we took a nice drive all the way there stopping at a few places along the way there and back. Besides camping and hiking, we went to Maizuru castle in Kofu and went to some grape farms to get freshly picked grapes. Hiking up the ravine was not as easy as we thought, as some ares had the path washed out and there were a few steep or slippery places, but the views were very nice. There were lots of little waterfalls and blue pools of water all the up the hiking course. For dinner we ate Houtou, the famous food in Yamanashi which can be described as flat Udon. On the way back we drove past Mt. Fuji and the Fuji lakes, stopping at the Fuji flower park.
