Join our Flavors of Mt. Fuji
A site of pilgrimage and an inspiration to numerous artists and poets over the centuries, Mt. Fuji is one of the most climbed mountains in the world. On a clear day, the impressive and solitary volcano can be seen all the way from Tokyo, 100 km away.
For many people, climbing the mountain is a rite of passage. There is even a Japanese proverb, “A wise man climbs Mt. Fuji once, only a fool climbs it twice.”
Mt. Fuji is shared between two prefectures, both of which are famous for their local specialties. Shizuoka is renowned for their rich green teas with plantations stretching for miles, while Yamanashi has a unique climate that is perfect for cultivating fruit year-long.
Join Sakuraco this month as we celebrate the flavors of Mt. Fuji as well as the majestic view.
