Dear Reader,

This site aims to curate your journey along┬áthe mountain roads at the very heart of rural Japan. Allow me to select the very best of what Yamanashi has to offer. It doesn’t take much imagination to picture┬átimes long forgotten on these serendipitous adventures.

Warmest regards,

David Ellis
