Grapevine

Situated just west of Tokyo, the picturesque Yamanashi Prefecture is an
area often praised for its beautiful nature, its welcoming residents, and delicious fruit and wine. Yamanashi has many nicknames:“Wine Prefecture,” “Fruit Kingdom,” and also “Home of Mt. Fuji.” Furthermore, Yamanashi’s limitless charms don’t just end there!
 
This year’s issue of the Yamanashi Grapevine will guide you through our favorite spots as expats in Yamanashi— all centered on the theme of The Arts.
 
We hope that the experiences in this year’s issue will inspire you to plan your own visit to our prefecture, where you can enjoy the arts of Yamanashi firsthand.
 
Every year for the last 18 years, we have been able to create the Yamanashi Grapevine thanks to the wonderful contributions made from the generous individuals at the Osano Memorial Foundation. This foundation had its start in 1988 with a donation from the wife of the late Mr. Kenji Osano, Mrs. Eiko Osano, who had the intention to carry out her husband’s desire to “advance international exchanges, develop the region and create a new culture” here in Yamanashi.
 
Please feel free to explore this Osano Memorial website for past issues of the Grapevine and more information on the Osano Memorial.
 
Sincerely,
The Yamanashi Grapevine Editorial Staff
