Tod & I visited Kofu on our very first visit to Japan on a referral appointment from his eye doctor. We were such newbs back then we had a hard time directing the taxi to the hospital. Nothing much from those trips stuck with us, so we decided to give Kofu another visit.

It was a nice day trip. We had lunch at and a tour of Japan's oldest winery, Sadoya, then clambered up the local castle hill and around town for some photos.

Doesn't this look like a good place to hoop?

You got some nice photos on that trip!

What a beautiful Mt.Fuji it is. You were lucky to see it.

How lovely! And that one space looks like an amazing place to hoop... I hope that you get to hoop there sometime.
