Make sure you head out to the Ohirayama Ropeway and Takagawa Shinyamaguchi Country Club in Hofu, around 18 miles (29 kilometers) away. A drive to Kofu is another worthwhile option It's 18 miles (29 kilometers) away from Fujiyoshida and is home to the Minami Alps National Park and Chichibu Tamakai National Park.
While you are staying in Fujiyoshida, why not head to Kamakura. Approximately 45 miles (72 kilometers) to the east, this regional city is home to Kotokuin Temple, Kanagawa Prefectural Ofuna Botanical Garden and Sugimotodera. Kamakura has lots to offer travelers willing to explore a little deeper. Hasedera (Hase Kannon), Enoshima Shrine and Jomyoji are just a couple of the other places not to pass by.
You'll be sure to win over natives in Yamanashi, by making use of some useful Japanese phrases. "Isshoni odorimasenka?" ("Would you like to dance with me?") is useful. And, using "Benjo wa doko desu ka?", which translates to "Where's the toilet?", can get you a long way.
At the end of your vacation, say a fond Sayōnara (farewell) to the people you've enjoyed getting to know and the spots you've enjoyed.
