●12:00 Lunch

One of the traditional local food is “Houtou”, which is Udon like thick noodle cooked in miso-based vegetable soup. The soup is slightly sweet as they typically use pumpkin, but it matches well with the miso taste. This healthy dish will warm you up after walking in the cold air of winter.

You can also enjoy some street food at Oshino Hakkai. Grilled dango (sweet dumpling),  grilled chest nuts, fried fish cake, fresh fruits and ice cream, etc.

This area is colder than Tokyo or other big cities in Japan. If you are lucky, you’ll have chance to see/touch ice and snow around.

●13:30 Kitaguchi Sengen Shrine

This small shrine situated at the bottom of Mt. Fuji is another popular tourist destination in the area. The god of the shrine is Mt. Fuji itself, and people come to the shrine and pray for their good luck, safety of the trip, etc., typically before climbing the mountain.
