Japan's number one peach and grape producer
With fertile land with good drainage, long hours of sunshine and a large difference in temperature between day and night, Fuefuki City lies in one of the most famous fruit producing areas in Japan. It has earned the title of 'The Number One Location in Japan for Peaches and Grapes' with its unique rural scenery surrounded by orchards, and is supported by related local industries such as wineries and Pick Your Own tourist farms.
Due to its high quality grapes that are used for wine production, the city boasts as many as twelve wineries. Koshu wine, made from local Koshu grapes, has been gaining international recognition in Europe and beyond.
A tree full of peaches ripening under sun is as beautiful as a piece of jewelry. The sweet fragrance of peaches wafting through the town is yet another pleasant aspect for visitors.
Earlier in the season, there is another sight to be marveled at: pink peach blossoms covering the hills as far as the eye can see.
Along with the Koshu grape, which has been grown in Yamanashi Prefecture for many years, several varieties of excellent quality grapes suited to the climate of Japan, including Shine Muscat, Kyoho, and Pione, are grown in the town.
Visitors can enjoy the experience of picking their own peaches and grapes in one of the tourist orchards from summer to autumn.
