Trip to Yamanashi

Towards the end of August me and the boyfriend headed off to Yamanashi prefecture to his hometown! The aim of the short stay was to watch the famous fire festival in Fujiyoshida and to meet his family, both of which were really fun.

We tripped around during the daytime and drank with friends and family in the evenings, visiting Kawaguchiko and nice places around the city, a huge big ice cave which stays below freezing inside even during the scorching japanese summer, a brief drive through the edge of Aokigahara, a trip up the little cable car close to the lake, and of course..the festival!
