visited Shosenkyo for the 1st time. Picked up rental car from Kofu station and drove about 30min uphill. Koyo was peak in mid Nov when we visited. Lucky it was a sunny day, Koyo was gorgeous well beyond our expectations 🙂
Kakuenbo viewing area (覚円峰)
Parked car in nearby parking lot. Followed the walking trail slightly uphill for about 30min and arrived at the Kakuenbo viewing area. Leaves were in a multitude of colours in the afternoon sunlight.
Before heading to Fuji 5-lake, stopped by Nagatoro bridge and it was well worth it.
